I believe that life is an adventure. I enjoy finding my path in the wilderness both metaphorically and in real life. We have mountains to conquer. Being a counselor does not mean we don't have our own mountains to climb. It just means we have tools in our toolbox to make the path more bearable.
I became a counselor because I found a path to peace and happiness and couldn't think of a better way to make a living than sharing that path with others. It is a joy and an honor to be with others as they find peace. I love working with trauma, because from my chair, I get to see the best of people rise from the hardest places. I am always impressed by the strength and tenacity of those that have the courage to heal; Even those who don't feel like they are very strong in the moment.
I have found my passion in helping families heal. I want to help people resolve family trauma and learn to connect in healthy ways with those we care about the most. Whether it is helping couples rekindle love or helping parents better build lasting and healthy bonds with their children, I enjoy seeing families grow and change in peace and harmony. I am trained in level 1 & 2 of the Gottman Method.
I love dogs and cats and all things furry. I love hiking and seeing this world. I love books by inspirational people. I'm figuring out this whole meditation and mindfulness thing. And I cuss a little.
Thank you for allowing me to guide you on your journey.
