I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy with a specialization in Children & Adolescent Counseling. As a trained marriage and family therapist, I believe in the connectedness of life and the importance of our relationship with ourselves and with others.

 

The choices and decisions we make every day not only impact us as individuals but may also create a ripple effect in the lives of those we love or in the lives of those around us.

Sometimes in life, it can be difficult to recognize one’s own inner strength and to change good intentions into good principle-based practice. We all need support and validation. 

 

At Salt & Light Counseling, I will work with you to help you identify the relationship between your

 

 

By working together, we can identify realistic strategies that you can begin using immediately to: 

 

  • Achieve your goals

  • Improve your relationships

  • Maximize your potential

Personal Invitation

Just as important as taking the first step is finding someone you can work with. I invite you to contact me.  More important than you deciding to work with me is me helping you to find a supportive environment that fits your needs. My goal is to help you find your way to a better and brighter future.

"For me, becoming isn’t about arriving somewhere or achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn't end."
— Michelle Obama

Experience

I am very passionate about helping others strengthen their natural skills and abilities so that they can be successful in establishing a well-balanced life.  I have had the pleasure of working in the human services field since the early 1990's serving and supporting others. I have worked in the community educating families and managing several foster care/adoption programs. Now, in addition to running my own private practice where I have the chance to work 1:1 with individuals who are striving to achieve their personal goals, I continue to work with different entities to provide training and education to groups both within and outside of the US.
