Are you looking for a warm, friendly, and welcoming counselor for you, your family, or your child? Are you looking for someone experienced and knowledgeable in the ages, stages and challenges of children, teens, and adults?

Using an integrative approach, I incorporate art, games, writing, drawing, and other creative outlets in my sessions. I view my clients as the experts of their own life and meet you where you are and at a pace that makes you comfortable. If you or your child need support with anxiety, depression, stress management, parenting, executive functioning skills, emotional regulation, social skills, relationship issues, career counseling, or life transitions I am here to listen with compassion and to provide you resources to handle these life issues.

At Wellness Connection, our approach is holistic, so we will treat the whole person- your mind, body, and spirit. If you have questions as to how we can work together, I am happy to schedule a complimentary 15-minute phone call to answer them. I look forward to guiding you or your child to a place where you can live your life to the fullest potential.

More About Me:

My husband and I have raised three children who are now in their twenties. Before becoming a therapist, I spent 30 years working with children and families from all different backgrounds in both early childhood education and non-profit settings. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, taking walks, going to the beach as often as I can, doing macrame (although my creative focus is subject to change), doing hot yoga, playing pickleball, reading, spending time outside, and camping.
