I am excited to join Woodhaven Counseling Associates, Inc. after 15 years of having a solo counseling practice.
I have had the privilege of helping hundreds of men, women, and children heal from moderate and deep emotional wounds, including clergy, business executives, those just coming out of prison, and those returning from military duty. My breadth and depth of expertise, coupled with my unique, individualized approach has also lead to success for family of origin issues including mood disorders, anxiety, depression, trauma, and abuse.

Regardless of the issue, I am able to see through any emotional patterns to help clients discover the root of their wounds. Together, we begin a path for improvement that is at the client’s own pace and includes methods with which he or she is most comfortable.

My own journey has helped define me as both a mother of three children and nine grandchildren and a mental health counselor. In the past, I worked as an in-home daycare provider, as a public school teacher as well as a teacher of homebound students, a claims adjudicator for unemployment, a manager of homes for the mentally and emotionally challenged individuals, and as an administrator in corporate America.

My undergraduate degree is in French and English and my Master’s degree is in counseling from Grace University. I also completed counseling coursework at Jerusalem University College in Israel.

I offer a peaceful, welcoming environment and am confident that I can help anyone who is ready to begin their own individualized journey of healing.
