I am grateful for the opportunity to journey with people during their time of need. Connection, collaboration, and relationship are the foundation of my counseling efforts. I am passionate about mental health care and its possibilities for healing and growth for all. With empathy for the hard, and affirmation for the good, I seek to breathe dignity and hope into every person I am privileged to work with.
My husband and I are married 27 years and we have three young adult sons. I love spending time outdoors, in all seasons, with my husband and our puppy. We enjoy kayaking and hiking with friends. I enjoy gardening and creating beauty in my yard. We are recent transplants to central Wisconsin, and we are happy to be here!
My journey to become a counselor began when I was a homeschooling mom to our three teen sons, and life provided more challenges than we could figure out on our own. We needed help. That was how I was introduced to the field of mental health care. I am passionate about providing for others what I have received myself. There is help. There is hope. You are not alone.
