Meet Our Therapists
As a Registered Nurse, I have been caring for people for over 34 years. I recognize the need that patients and families have to help them with the stresses of coping with illnesses and with caring for their family who are ill. With a long history of working with hospice and those with chronic health problems, I have the knowledge to help guide you as you learn new coping skills, ways to reduce anxiety, new ways to communicate, and conflict resolution. I have a heart for those who are experiencing grief, whether this grief is due to losing a loved one, or for one of the many ambiguous losses that all of us at some point in our lives.
I also have a special interest in helping families who are living with the burden of Alzheimer’s Disease. This debilitating disease is difficult for all who are touched by the person that is afflicted. It can be a long, troubling, and deeply emotional journey.
I have been trained in EMDR therapy, which has been proven helpful in both PTSD and learning to deal with past traumas. I have also been trained in pre-marital therapy utilizing the Prepare and Enrich system. I completed my master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy through Friend’s University, which is an AACOMFT accredited university. I am a member of AAMFT, Delta Kappa academic honor society, and EMDRIA.
