My passion is in teaching families to communicate in healthy ways,with appreciation and respect for one another. Having raised children of my own, I understand the unique challenges and difficulties parents face in today's society. After completing my Master's degree in counseling, my primary focus has been on providing education for parents to create harmony and peace in their home, through workshops, presentations and parenting sessions.
It is my belief that children can reach their highest potential with a loving and supportive environment that affords them the opportunity to have a voice in the family and communicate their feelings and needs in a respectful way. I love to teach people how to use express their emotions in the family and experience the benefits of sharing and being acknowledged. I teach people how to have empathy for one another in the family unit, as this will inevitably effect others in schools, our community and society.
I am also passionate about saving marriages. I work with many couples who are on the brink of divorce and find that children are highly effected by the stress in their parent's relationships. It is amazing to see the transformation in the entire family when there is peace between the mother and father. It is an honor for me to be a part of this work and to witness families saved from the pain and despair that comes from being a victim of divorce.
I am a faith based counselor and integrate spirituality and biblical principles in my counseling services according to my client's preference. It is my belief that with God all things are possible and even the most difficult situations can be conquered with faith, hope, and unconditional love.
On a personal note, I love to read, bike ride, hike, travel, sew, write, snow ski and be outdoors whenever possible. I have been married forever and have two grown children and five grandchildren. My most favorite thing to do is to play with my grandchildren and visit them as much as possible.
