I grew up in a large family in South Jersey.  My favorite childhood memory is summer along the Great Egg Harbor River.  There, along with my siblings,  I swam and canoed to my heart's content!

In my late twenties, I left the Delaware Valley for over 20 years.  I settled on the west coast and worked as a community and school mediator for nearly 10 years.  I eventually earned a degree in public administration, .

I returned  to the east coast and settled in Philadelphia in 2006.   I enjoyed some aspects of public administration, but continued searching for truly fulfilling work.  Always interested in people and relationships.  I decided to study clinical counseling psychology.  I have a special interest in working with couples and also working with individuals couples and familes facing addiction. 

I bring life experience and a sense of humor to sessions.  I love my profession and feel honored to earn the trust of every individual and couple that seek out my services.  I bring life experience and a sense of humor to sessions.

I have a deep respect for nature and am an avid animal over,
