I hope to make a little connection with each person that comes into my office or classroom. The thrill of witnessing change and healing in a family or individual is what keeps me going with complicated cases. Growing up I lived in Kearney, NE and moved to the Chicago area for about 10 years. Since 1997 I’ve been in Omaha enjoying the best of both worlds, the big city benefits with a small town sense of community. In my spare time I covet fresh air, nature, gardening, especially hybrid irises and walking our beloved cocker spaniel, Lucy. I’m intrigued with people and all of their differences. The reason I wanted to be a therapist is to understand the mystery and beauty of relationships. To me, therapy is like putting together a puzzle. I strive to help individuals, couples and families put together the little pieces of their history, personalities and core beliefs so they can create meaningful relationships.
