Professional counseling comes as a second career for me, following decades of being a business owner, and most importantly, a mother. As time freed up with the “nest” getting emptier, I volunteered at non-profit agencies serving vulnerable populations. During that time, I was struck by the level of need I witnessed and wanted to become the best helper that I could be. When the time was right, I began the journey to realizing a life-long dream of pursuing higher education and discovered Social Work as the discipline that best aligned with my personal values. Prior to establishing my private practice, I worked in several human service settings, including residential facilities, corrections, child protective services, and a variety of non-profit agencies.
