I am the first person you see when you walk in the doors of Cogito Mental Health Services. I oversee the day to day operations and handle all administrative duties. My primary goal is to ensure that we provide the highest quality of care to our clients and families.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Supervising Counselor. After working with children, adolescents, parents, adults and families for over 37 years, I believe I have the experience to help clients discover lasting solutions and make adjustments that will lead to a happier, healthier life.
Life is a journey and that journey has twist and turns. Some of the challenges we face in life can seem overwhelming at time. Stress can destroy our lives and the relationships that we form along the way. As a professional counselor, I know the value of seeking help at times from people with the knowledge and skills to help make sense out of life and to create a plan for personal growth.
Growth. Change. Two small words that can have a huge impact on our lives, if only we choose to harness their opportunities. Helping my clients learn to connect with their inner power to be able to walk bravely through life is my goal. Embracing our inner power helps us to move the growth and change in our lives in the direction in which we choose to go.
Mental health care is the field I chose to pursue because I believe everyone has the capacity for self-actualization. I have a belief in the full development of the individual.
I am a Master Level Therapist. I have a Master’s degree in Counseling and Guidance from Troy University, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary and Special Education. I am a former elementary school teacher and behavior therapist.
