About Me

I have had many life experience, both good and challenging.  Those challenging experiences are those where I attained the most growth.       

I have been married 29 years, although became a widow at a young age in a previous marriage.  Even though I have lived in Colorado Springs for 23 years, I experienced life in many other locations as a military wife.  I raised two sons and have worked in a counseling setting  for 21 years, first as an administrative assistant and then executive director of a non-profit counseling agency.  I finally pursued my degree as a Master's in Social Work so I could fulfill my long-time dream of becoming a psychotherapist in order to help others.  

My experiences in life as a daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend help me to have a deeper understanding of and connection to clients with whom I work.  To grow, each person has to work through where they are to where they want to be.  I love what I do -- helping others grow from their experiences into the "you" they want to be.

I will be compassionate and understanding as we work together in a safe environment of mutual trust and respect to bring about the changes you want in your life.  I am here to collaborate with you, to use the approaches that suit your need, to create a meaningfull life that brings you happiness.
