It all began while serving on the board of the local mental health center. I soon realized I wanted to do the work that the therapists at the facility did, which was to work with people. I continued my education in psychology and social work and loved every minute of it. Our children got to watch their mother study hard too.
For over twenty years I have worked in schools, county health departments, and private practice. Along with my clinical license, I hold a certificates in addictions and facilitator certification for the work of Dr. Brené Brown. I believe it is important for the people I work with to feel welcome, heard, and share their story.
In order to help people find relief, I studied at The Rapid Resolution Institute. I have found this work to be an amazing resource for many. Please refer to my resources for more information.
When not reading, writing, and learning more, I spend time with my family and friends. .
