Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor
Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor
Complex Trauma Practitioner
Level-Three Gottman Trained

I have been working with children, adolescents and adults for over 27 years, first in the capacity as a Director of Children Programming in local ministries, and then as a Licensed Professional Counselor starting in 2009.  I have provided trauma-informed and supportive mental health and substance abuse counseling interventions in multiple treatment settings, including schools, churches, community outpatient centers, jails, and hospitals.

I began LifeSong Counseling because I want to use my creativity, energy and professional training to help others in their own journey to healing.  Recently, I completed Level 3 Training for couples/marriage counseling using the Gottman Method.  I am passionate about healthy marriages and helping couples turn toward one another, effectively manage conflict and share life dreams.

My husband and I have been married 20 years and we have six children, five grandchildren and a dog named Atticus.  I enjoy reading, taking walks on the bike path and doing around the house projects.
