I'm a married mother of four who grew up all around the Michiana area. I attended Valparaiso University for my undergraduate degree and then completed a master's degree in counseling from Indiana University South Bend. I wanted to be in a helping profession from a very young age but didn't find my niche until much later. It is my privilege to enter into the worlds of people in such an intimate way and help them live meaningful, fulfilling lives. In my spare time I enjoy my family, friends, theatre, and home renovation projects. 

I've worked for the last decade in many service roles providing long-term and short-term counseling and help in times of crisis. I've been a therapist in community mental health in Michiana, a case worker in South Bend, a family support liaison at a local hospital, and a counselor in the PHM public schools. I'm happy to be joining the ranks of other private practice therapists in town as we work to bring the best in mental healthcare to Michiana.
