For me, your happiness is personal!
People need people. From the moment we are conceived until our final breath, we live and grow together, work and play together and we experience things together.
With over 30 years as a helping professional, my desire is to join with people. I work and live by two main ideas; listening so that I can have the best understanding possible and so that people will feel heard, and helping with strategy so that people will achieve their sincerely held goals.
JOIN ME and let's seek the fullness of life that comes from meeting our genuine emotional needs, building strong relationships and connected communities.
A bit more about me...
My husband and I live on Cape Cod, Massachusetts and we have been together for 36 years. Our son majored in History and is currently a graduate student studying Journalism. He is an avid angler and loves the outdoors, doing things like volunteering maintaining trails and fishing at all hours. Our our daughter is in college studying Art Therapy. She is a talented artist and is the heart of the family. My husband and I enjoy our time together doing projects, talking about life, laughing, hiking and biking. We are of the Christian faith and value our faith, marriage and family as the foundation of all good things. While I have extensive training in my field of expertise, my real education comes from navigating life, learning and growing with my husband and children. Spending time together as a couple and a family, though not always easy, is a valuable, totally worth it experience!
