A brand new start is exactly that. During our lives, we are presented with many opportunities to start anew, whether those opportunities come from deliberate personal choices or a combination of life events that just happen.


It is my goal to meet you where you are in your life and assist you as you begin your new start to developing a healthier, more empowered you.


I am a well-seasoned counselor who has been in the business of working alongside individuals, couples, families, and children for 20 years as we together search for new answers to life's abundant challenges. Whether it is depression, relationship issues, stress management, or more, I am confident that we can find the solutions that best work for you. I believe strongly that each of us carries our own answers within ourselves, but sometimes it just takes a little help to unlock those answers. While the counseling process can be painful, it can also be something like opening a treasure chest and discovering your own inner strengths that will benefit you as you begin again in your life.

I tend to view the counseling process as something like opening a treasure chest filled with tidbits that we learn about ourselves to become stronger and navigate our way through our lives better.


I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor for 19 years now and have been in the mental health field for over eighteen years. In that time, I have worked with a myriad of issues, from depression to couples issues to end-of-life issues and much more. I have worked in both mental health agencies and in private practice. My passion is for helping people.


I believe the therapeutic relationship is one of the key elements in great therapy, and the better I get to know you and you know me, the more effective I can be in helping you to uncover your own answers.

Girl with Dogs

It has been scientifically proven that our furry little friends can provide us with many health advantages. Cats and dogs not only bring us comfort in times of need but have also been known to lower blood pressure and lower the stress that we experience in our lives.


Here, at A Brand New Start Counseling, we value the benefits that our little fur babies can bring to our lives and incorporate them into the therapy process. You are welcome to bring in your furry friends to help you feel more relaxed and at home as we get to the root of your issues.


How much more relaxing will it be to have your dog or kitty snuggling in your lap as your tackling life’s challenges?
