About

I’ve always been a dreamer with high hopes and goals for my life and career.  I knew I had a purpose and could make a positive impact on many.  However, like many others, I allowed my fears and limiting beliefs to prevent me from the success I knew I was capable of achieving.   From my earliest memories, my success and connection with people has always been a safe space for them to express their feelings and experiences.  I know this is at the core of what makes me good at what I do; my intuitive abilities have enabled me to understand and connect with my clients and create a safe place for them to spread their wings and grow.   What motivates me in life is to watch people succeed.  I have always rooted for the underdog, which led me to become a psychotherapist 25 years ago.

After years as a psychotherapist, business owner, and now life coach, I have all the tools and experience to help others on their journey to fulfillment.  I have built upon my professional experience, as well as my own personal journey. I now provide people with the tools and personal support needed to make significant positive changes in their lives. My strong empathetic nature helps build rapport and trust by tuning into and appreciating feelings, hopes, and fears. I offer clients an ability to see beyond the self-limiting beliefs that hold them back and bring creativity to helping them find their strengths and turn their goals into reality.

I utilize my training in life coaching and mind/body techniques in my coaching work to help facilitate positive change in all areas of life, including managing major life transitions, changing careers, creating a healthy, well-balanced life, and more.

My strong belief in the interconnection between our mind and body compelled me to learn more about holistic approaches to mental, physical, and emotional wellness throughout my professional career. This inspired me to open Flourish Counseling and Wellness Center in Olney, MD, in November 2017.

Here are some of my accomplishments:

  • Master’s Degree in Social Work
  • 25 Years as a Psychotherapist
  • Practice owner for over 10 years
  • Completed Life Coach Training through the Institute for Life Coach Training
  • Opened Flourish Counseling and Wellness Center in November 2017
  • President of the Olney Holistic Chamber of Commerce
  • Reiki Master
