Personal Comments

I have come to the counseling field after many years in the arena of Public Health with an interest and commitment to work on an individual level with children, families, couples and individual adults, promoting both personal and relational growth and healing.  My focus is to work in partnership with clients bringing awareness and tools to the change process they are seeking.  It is also to support clients who are adjusting to major life events, helping them to find peace and well-being despite challenging circumstances.
