My goal in becoming a licensed counselor is help those whose lives are spinning out of control. I work from a spiritual perspective as well as from the best training in empirically supported counseling techniques. Being a believer is not a prerequisite to seeking my services as it is always the choice of the counselee whether spiritual issues will be part of the counseling. I primarily work from an Attachment perspective when dealing with couples and relationship problems. Generally, I tailor my specific counseling technique to the individual's personality, issues and life situation. I worked for many years for a state agency before returning to graduate school. I have raised 2 daughters and 2 stepdaughters. I have grandchildren. My current marriage has lasted 16 years. I am an active member of my church. I enjoy gardening, sewing and reading.
