Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist | MC, LMFT
My clients come with the many storms and challenges of life: marriages and all its challenges, parenting and the concerns of family (including blended ones). Individual clients bring their depression, anxiety, self worth, and life adjustments concerns. As we fellow Godly instruction, He maximizes our lives, to fulfill His dreams in and for us.
Looking back, I see where the hand of God has lead and worked in my life; to my amazement. He’s brought me so much farther than I ever dreamed. I never imagined the many ways He’s used me: 30 years of counseling, public speaking, eight years of radio program production, adopting an angry teen, graduate school, counseling, leading 2 Christian counseling centers and being a clinical supervisor. [My limited vision saw me as a shy, married homemaker/mother, involved in church and content with my life. God had bigger, better plans. ]
Raised in Michigan, my husband and I permanently moved to Phoenix in 1978 to open Family Life Radio network’s radio station, KFLR. We have raised 3 children to adulthood. After adopting one of our daughters at 14, I went on to pursue a career in counseling.
Being semi-retired with 30 years of experience, I’ve helped many people find perspectives and solutions in their lives. I now see clients Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3-7 pm. Since Covid-19, I’m only doing tele therapy, having relinquished my sublet offices.
I offer a free 10 minute phone consultation, to give you a sense of who I am and how I work with people.
