Spirit of Joy Counseling Services is my mission to help others find peace and joy in the midst of work, stress, pressures, chaos, family issues, children and teen problems, grief and loss….and the list goes on and on.

There is an EYE in the STORM of life and I endeavor to help people learn to LIVE in that peaceful place, no matter what is swirling around them.

My years as a speech therapist, elementary teacher, school counselor, and LPC Intern helped fine tune my skills in understanding various issues in children’s and adults’ lives. I learned that unhealthy coping skills and past hurts and losses interfere with joy and happiness and the goal of becoming a fulfilled human being. I became a specialist in guiding children and their parents to discover their strengths and weaknesses, fulfill their mission, set boundaries and communicate more effectively, and make better choices for balanced living.
