About Me

Welcome to my website!  I am the Founder and Director of Whole Health Counseling Center.

I am a multifaceted individual whose journey encompasses the roles of a businesswoman, mother, co-parent, aunt, sister, photographer, best friend, social justice advocate, retired chef, and the architect of my own life. With a diverse array of experiences, I bring a holistic perspective to my work, aiming to inspire, empower, and guide others on their paths towards personal fulfillment and success.

My fascination with human evolution, behavior patterns, stress management, and self-discovery ignited in 1994, laying the foundation for my journey into psychology. While my career initially led me through the realms of health, wellness, and business for 15 years, it was in 2015 that Imade the pivotal decision to return to my passion for psychology. Since then, I have found profound fulfillment in connecting with people, facilitating growth, and witnessing transformative change.

Just like my clients, I have navigated my own share of personal experiences, each contributing to my growth and understanding of the human psyche. Through therapy, I have embraced vulnerability, confronted fears, and unlocked deeper layers of self-awareness. These breakthroughs have not only transformed my relationships and life but have also fueled my dedication to helping others realize the possibility of change and personal evolution.

As a dedicated advocate for social justice and a compassionate guide in both personal and professional realms, I embody authenticity, empathy, and resilience. With my blend of professional expertise and lived experiences, I invite you to embark on a journey of self-discovery, empowerment, and meaningful transformation. Together, let's explore how to create the life you truly desire.
