My Personal Background: I am originally from the Northeast have lived in Raleigh for the past 20years. I have been married for over 30 years and have two young-adult children. My husband and I are very active with our church, within the Marriage and Family Ministry, where we are members of a core planning team for this ministry, as well as mentors for married and engaged couples.
My Professional Background I hold an M.B.A. from the Thunderbird School of International Management and used to be a Sales/Marketing Executive and an Executive Search Consultant serving corporate America. I hold a Masters in Counseling from Liberty University, and have been a Counselor since 2006. I have had my private practice since 2009. Because my faith is such an integral part in how I approach counseling, I also am a Board Certified Professional Christian Counselor. My work as a counselor involves integrating best clinical practices along with foundational Christian principals. I am also an Approved EMDR Consultant.
My Style of Counseling You will find that I am very direct and to the point. While I am a good listener and am very compassionate and non-judgmental, my clients appreciate that I provide guidance, suggestions and feedback. It's just who I am. You will also find that I am very goal oriented - maybe it's my corporate background - but when you work with me we WILL be looking to formulate and achieve your goals!
