Thank you for visiting my page! I often say "Wellness awaits each of us. We choose the time."
However, sometimes we need a little help! It has been my passion and my purpose in life for over 25 years to "shorten your stay in the pain-field" by offering you keys to wellness. Whether writing, speaking, or presenting, I will provide you with healing tools in order for you to create your own healthy change and embrace the wellness you so deserve! I ask you one thing - to be brave and to take this journey with me. Remember, wellness means you do your own work, but it doesn't mean you have to do it alone!
I am a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a California State Licensed Teacher. I hold a Master's Degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage, Family, and Child Counseling. Having worked in a variety of settings including a women's shelter, a faith-based counseling center, and in private practice, my areas of special training and experience include sexual trauma, abuse, addiction, codependency, domestic violence, betrayal, bullying and cyber bullying, and screen dependence.
I have authored eight recovery books including:
"Daughters Betrayed By Their Mothers:Moving From Brokenness To Wholeness" (February 2018)
"Power Down & Parent Up: Cyber Bullying, Screen Dependence & Raising Tech-Healthy Children" (2017)
"Breaking Through Betrayal: And Recovering the Peace Within 2nd Edition" (2016)
"Mountain Air: Relapsing and Finding the Way Back...One Breath at a Time" (2013).
"Another Way" (2015) - a novel offering tween to teens (and their parents/guardians) an empowering message of discovering, defining, and determining their self-worth.
