I am honored and blessed to be invited into my client's homes, the office space they call work or the time we spend together in nature on walking trails.
I am a Nationally Certified Counselor who will assist you in achieving the private and personalized mental health you and your family deserve.
I spent many years actively participating in extreme sports, while working alongside world class athletes. I remain active in all things related to aviation. I understand the intense passion of extreme sports, lifestyles, and the personal intensity that results from elite professions. I too, walk the elite professional path; this allows me to empower others to rediscover their talents and passions that may be temporarily sidelined or ignored.
For close to a decade I participated in higher education, with the culmination of my doctorate. Working alongside professionals allows me to understand the complexity of professional life and the balance that must be achieved to have a successful personal life as well.
Shame, Blame or Secrets have allowed you to recognize you want life "different". We work together to define what "different" is for you and the steps are necessary to begin to live life forward.
I work from a very action oriented and positively motiving perspective. My job is to dust off the personal tools you already possess in such a way that your confidence may begin to flourish.
I find most all of us have great confidence and know what we want in our daily life; we just need help creating the road map for our next life journey. Counseling with me will allow you to develop your roadmap, your next game plan or quite simply, your next life adventure.
Counseling with me is not about change. You already have all the necessary qualities to achieve your daily lifestyle. Blending this insight with necessary actions, will allow you to begin your next life chapter.

My dedicated partner
MotleyProfessional Service Dog
Born in 2008, Motley has matured into a calm, gentle, yet highly sensitive service dog. She is a pure English Cream Golden Retriever, who excels at obeying commands from friends three to 93. She just wants to please and connect in a gentle way that allows confidence and self-esteem to build in those she meets.
Motley earned her official "Service Dog" certification in 2012 from Twin Ports Dog Training in Duluth.
Although Motley would love to join in on any or all sessions, I make sure it is in the best interest of you and your family that she joins us. I find Motley works best with clients who are struggling to find words to express their feelings. Spending time in silence with Motley, clients begin to find words to help express what they are currently feeling or thinking.
Motley has also assisted with families whom, their child has developed a great fear of dogs, yet the parents want their kids to respect animals. With her calm and gentle personality, she has been able to lessen or stop the fear while teaching active and healthy pet etiquette.
