You can get a sense of who I am and how I work from this website. Here’s a little more information about me, but the best way to get to know me is in person. Call now for a free 15-min consultation 828-242-706.

I began this work in 1999 after graduating from NOVA/Southeastern University, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, with a Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in North Carolina, a National Certified Counselor, and member of the American Counseling Association.

Prior to pursuing a degree in counseling, I attended DePaul University School of Law, Chicago, IL, and worked in the legal profession for 14 years in New York and Florida. I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois.

My professional skills, education, work history and family life have provided me a distinct blend of insight and experience. I have undergone many of the same stressors that my clients bring to therapy. If you feel encouraged or inspired by reading these words, I hope you will contact me because I would like to work with you and help you reclaim your balance, power, creativity and dreams.

I help my clients identify their strengths and uncover their unconscious blocks that often sabotage happiness and success. I educate my clients to utilize new coping skills and build on the intelligence and extraordinary power that only comes from within each of us.
