Licensed Marriage Family Therapist
Living with Joy
Hello and welcome to my site. I feel it is a privilege to do what I love doing, which is to help people through the challenges they are facing. Whether you are struggling with a recent diagnosis, depression, grief, loss, parenting issues, anxiety or not knowing how to move forward in the situation you are dealing with, I would like to help. I use a variety of supportive interventions that will assist you in your unique situation. You may face similar issues as others but how the situation you are facing affects you may differ dramatically from another's. I believe we can all be empowered to make the changes we need to make in order to live our best life possible.
In my life I wear many hats. One of course, is that of a therapist. In addition, I am a wife of 28 years, mother to three adult children ages, 25, 23 &19, a daughter to aging parents, sister and a volunteer in the community to name a few. I received my undergraduate degree from CSU Chico and my graduate degree from the University of San Francisco. I have been licensed as a Marriage, Family Therapist since 2000 and I have advanced training in the areas of Grief/Loss, Cancer Support, Parenting and Brainspotting.
Often a group can be a wonderful way to feel supported by others facing a similar situation. Groups are less of a financial investment which makes therapy available to more people. For the past 10 years I have led a Breast Cancer support group called Facing Cancer with Faith. In addition, I co-facilitate a "45ish" and under Breast Cancer support group. Both groups meet monthly at no cost.
Lastly, I am available to speak at healing events with a presentation called "Restoring Hope, Finding your Strength and Living with Joy." Please contact me for further information on any of the above.
