I have been married for nearly 30 years to the mother of my two grown sons.  I am devoted to personal, political, and professional activism for social justice and equality for all people.  I am also active in my church and love to spend as much time as I can with my family.  I believe that all people are inherently intelligent and worthy of respect and dignity.  I also believe change comes through education and self-exploration, and the power to change lies within the individual.  It is my honor and privilege to join with you as you embark on a journey of change and growth.

My undergraduate degree was in Education, and I taught elementary for 10 years.  My master’s degree was in Community Counseling, and I have been practicing counseling for about 10 years.  My Ph.D. is in Counselor Education and Supervision.  I am a full time professor in the Graduate Psychology and Counseling Department at Andrews University, teaching Master’s level students counseling skills and supervising their work with clients.  I am the coordinator of the school counseling program at Andrews University.  After sharing office space with other counselors for years, I opened my private practice in January, 2012 and enjoy the wide variety of clients this area offers.  My clients have ranged in age from 6 to 76 years old, which illustrates my belief that you are never too old (or young) to change.
