Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My path to becoming a therapist took some time and saw some lengthy tangents. Along the way I've been a teacher, counselor, wife, mother, and grandmother, all experiences that have shaped my outlook on life and my current work.Each client who comes into my office can expect to be treated with compassion, understanding, and respect. From your first contact with me, I will be determined to help you find the services you need and the help you seek. I don't "fix" anyone. My job is to facilitate my client's healing with the understanding that they can solve their own problems and discover their own life purpose. I will strive to ensure you feel supported, heard, and understood, learn efective coping skills, and begin letting go of behavious that aren't serving you so you can move forward in life with confidence that you are on the right path for you!

About My Practice

Office Hours
The focus of my practice is helping bulimics, anorexics, binge eaters, and those who are unhappy with their bodies and spend much of their day obsessing about their weight, what they ate or plan to eat. I work with adolescents and adults in individual, group, or couples counseling.

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
