About

"Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within." 
- James Baldwin

With over 10 years of experience working with children and families and a lifetime as a gifted listener, I believe that everyone deserves to have their story heard.  In this fast paced society, how often do you feel that someone is truly listening?

After graduating from Michigan State University, I worked with children and families involved in the child welfare system in Detroit, MI.  My experiences compelled me to further my education so that I could play a more therapeutic role, and I have since completed my Master of Arts in Community Counseling from Western Michigan University.

A love of the outdoors brought my husband, along with our dog and 2 cats to Manistee County.  I enjoy hiking, kayaking, snowshoeing, trips to the beach and photography.  Nature has played a healing role in my life and inspires me each day.
