I love hearing people’s stories. Sometimes the adventure takes unexpected twists and turns that are challenging to navigate on one’s own. You are not alone! Together we can plan the next steps in your story so you reach your full potential; your strengths and life experiences make you unique. I use evidence-based practices and time proven strategies to help you develop healthy relationships and address life’s challenges in ways that support new growth. When you’re ready, let’s do this together whether individually, as a couple or as a family.
For me, living life to the fullest included having been married to my husband for almost thirty years, along with the joys and challenges of raising two beautiful daughters. After thirty-four years in education as a teacher and school administrator, I decided to pursue a second career, helping others grow in relationship with self and others. I returned to Azusa Pacific to earn a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and now serve as a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, AMFT #108883 where I am supervised by Dr. Susan Trueblood, Psy.D., LMFT # 49022. My life experiences as a daughter, wife, mother, teacher, principal and therapist combine with professional training and allow me to walk with you as you develop new skills and explore new possibilities.
