I am the “Bionic Therapist”. As a young teenager, I survived a traumatic accident that resulted in limb loss. My journey to healing was long and emotionally difficult because for years I struggled alone and lost my sense of self. And then, out of the darkness came a light: a patient therapist who helped me dig through my pain, recognize my inner strength and find joy in life again. Today, I look in the mirror and see a woman who is happy, resilient, and at peace: a Warrior Woman, Survivor, and Lioness.
 

As a therapist, I view my role as that of a guide to walk with you as you embark on your journey to healing and to provide a safe space for you to do so. My therapy style is open and honest: I don’t believe in telling clients what they think they want to hear, instead, we’ll work together as a team and tackle whatever it is you need so that you can move on with your life.
 

Because I have a unique understanding of trauma, PTSD, limb loss, depression and Midlife issues (including empty nest syndrome, depression, menopause, career-related issues, divorce recovery, etc.), I hold a special place in my heart for those who come to me seeking guidance with these issues, but I welcome any and all who simply need a good listener with an open mind and heart.
 

My educational background includes a B.S. in Psychology from Aquinas College and a Master in Social Work from Grand Valley State University.
 

What makes me smile? My adult children, puffy Cheetos, walking everywhere, sunshine, and travel! Peace.
