To help achieve the goals you have in mind, whether you wish to improve the quality of your life or better cope with life’s difficulties, I offer many years of experience and a collaborative, non-judgmental approach.  My orientation is wholistic–mind, body, and spirit–in order to help you with the areas in which you want to focus.  I use a variety of therapeutic techniques, especially those of cognitive-behavioral origin.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).  My undergraduate degree, a Bachelor of Arts in psychology, was earned at at Lakeland College in Sheboygan.  I also have a Master of Science degree in educational psychology, with emphases in community counseling and school counseling, from UW–Milwaukee.   I am Wisconsin through and through.

Having worked in a number of settings, including outpatient mental health, university counseling, school counseling, and in-home autism treatment, I have broad experience as a counselor and therapist.  These varied experiences have all enriched my career; however, my heart lies as an outpatient psychotherapMental Health America in Sheboygan Countyist, so this is where I’ll stay.

On a personal level, balance in my life ensures my own mental health.  Quality relationships with my family and friends, a healthy and active lifestyle, a strong spiritual connection, and a good book reflect my top priorities.  The more of these that I can accomplish in the surroundings of nature, the better!
