About

After retiring about 3 years ago from a long career in Information Technology (IT) I decided to pursue a more meaningful occupation serving as a Clinical Mental Health Counselor.

I have lived through childhood trauma, parenting and family issues, a challenging career, and caregiving for elderly family members.

I take a person-centered coaching approach to therapy, emphasizing acceptance, mindfulness, and self-compassion. I help clients identify their strengths, values, engender hope, an
