I just like helping people to heal themselves. I began my career as an RN and earned a Master’s degree in Psychology 17 yrs ago. I have been in group practice as well as private practice as a counselor and I enjoy my current position where I see both children (second grade and up) and adults. Children love the Sand Tray Therapy where they are able to play and express themselves. I do cognitive behavioral therapy and offer compassionate listening and feedback to my clients. I also administer tests to our clients for psychological evaluations by Dr. Renfroe.
I enjoy balancing my work schedule by teaching yoga as a certified instructor evenings and weekends. I love to hike, kayak, read and study, and I play the Native American Flute. I have traveled all over the world and am excited to experience new cultures. My family and friends are my joy and strength and I love my career in counseling.
