I have been helping people my entire professional life and have worked with people from all walks of life and all ages. After earning a bachelor’s degree in psychology, I went into teaching with a certification in ESE (exceptional student education). Throughout my teaching years, my work went beyond instructing students. It also involved tending to the hearts and personal issues of my students and their families. That’s what inspired me to pursue a career in psychotherapy and get my master’s degree in counseling psychology. On a more personal note, I am a wife and mother. I have lived many of the issues I address in my practice and seen my way through them with the help of therapy, yoga and meditation. I am also a QIGONG and REIKI practitioner.
