It's not easy to admit that we are struggling, that we don't have it all figured out, that the pain of the past is impacting our present, that our anxiety is stealing our joy, that our relationships feel disconnected. But hold onto hope, my friend, because the pain of our present circumstances can become the foundation for deep and lasting change that brings us closer to living the lives we envision.
I chose the lotus for the Quad City Psychotherapy logo because it represents something beautiful arising from the mud.
No mud. No lotus.
Or as the poet Rumi said so beautifully, "The wound is where the light enters you."
I would be honored to work with you as you transform your suffering into greater power, purpose and presence.
I primarily work with adult women. I utilize Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Narrative Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

I worked in a health care setting for 38 years prior to private practice and have a passion for helping others attain their maximum wellness by improving their mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health.
My personal and professional goal is to continue to provide counseling and consultation to Physicians and Allied Health Care professionals.
I worked in a Family Medicine Residency program for 29 years and had the honor of teaching residents’ behavioral science and counseling skills. The FM Residency setting provided the opportunity to gain a solid understanding of the demands of medical education, residency training, workload in a primary care office, and the stress of managing the care of patients in a full practice.
Over the years, I have counseled Physicians and allied health care providers through professional burnout, compassion fatigue, legal challenges, work conflicts, ethical decision making, test taking anxiety, fear of public speaking, grief recovery, domestic violence, recovery from trauma, suicide prevention, substance abuse recovery, sleep problems, health problems, work life balance, career decisions, and relationship challenges.
