I received my Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Northern Illinois University in 1997. Since then I have worked at a social service agency, a church, a group private practice, and now at my own solo private practice.
I'm certified in the premarital/marital counseling program Prepare/Enrich and am a certified facilitator for SYMBIS (Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts), and I enjoy helping couples experience intentional marriages. I have special interest in depression, domestic violence awareness, self-esteem, grief and loss (I am a certified grief informed professional), attachment, spiritual issues, temperament and personality differences in relationships, communication, adoption & foster care concerns, and abuse issues. I also offer clinical supervision for therapists.
I have completed the training for Discernment Counseling and am now able to see clients whose marriage is "on the brink". Read more here: https://moderncommitment.com/on-the-brink/.
