Helping Clients Thrive

As a professional counselor, I come alongside clients with compassion and hope. Through the counseling relationship, we work together to address the challenges that accompany anxiety, depression, relationship conflicts, grief and major life transitions. I work primarily with adults and will work with you to take steps to improve mental, emotional, and spiritual health through learning to successfully navigate the complexities of life. I would love to help you identify your goals and take positive steps toward those goals.

My Favorite Things

I’m thankful for the past decade of my life in Cincinnati, where I currently reside with my husband. Prior to that, I spent much of my adult life in Columbus, OH, and enjoyed living, as a child, in other parts of the country  including Illinois, Texas and South Dakota. My husband and I have three amazing adult daughters, two wonderful son-in-laws, and one awesome grandson! When I’m not counseling, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, gardening, walking, working with my husband on home projects, watching movies and reading books. My husband and I attend Whitewater Crossing Christian Church.
