I’m a normal, down-to-earth human that enjoys helping others live the life they have always wanted; and I believe that you can be the person your dog thinks you are.

Like you, I have seen the words healthcare and wellness defined numerous ways over the years. Does it come from charisma and positive thinking? Meditation and chanting? Decisiveness? Is it all about the situation? Is it meant only for the chosen few who smile all the time? Or, is there a different story?

Nope! It is meant for everyone – including you!

I’m a Doctor of Behavioral Health and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor that enjoys working with all ages of patients that want to make wellness a part of their lifestyle. I have served as an Assistant Director of an academic doctoral program for several years teaching providers how to best serve patients in different types of healthcare settings. I am also the author of the Psychology Today blog, “A New Beginning”.

While working with a range of ages, I have found a passion in working through play techniques, holistic wellness, and positive psychology.

I am also a certified telehealth provider and supervisor which allows me to see individuals through online and phone sessions.
It’s about relationships

I’m sometimes referred to as the “Group Queen” for my ability to conjure up a wellness group on numerous topics or as the “Relationship Expert” for my communication skills that brings out the best in patients; I’m known for my practical, street-savvy style; my fusion of real-life stories and my conversational techniques connect with my patients at an intimate, intense and individual level.
Experience

With over 10 years coaching, speaking, and most importantly, real-life, in-the-trenches counseling experience, my view is radically different. I appreciate, and share with patients, that change and wellness is a moment-to-moment choice and not always about medication, doctor appointments or defeat. Wellness is for everyone, everyday. It’s how we should roll!
