About Your Therapist

I would like to tell you a little about myself.  I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of Florida in 1978, and my Master's Degree from Florida State University.

I am a native Floridian and a resident of Central Florida for over 40 years.  I have been married to the same man since I was twenty-one years old. I have one married adult daughter and two adorable grandchildren.

Working in a variety of community-based and outpatient (office) settings, I gained experience counseling children, adolescents, and adults.  I have provided counseling services in local hospital psychiatric units, homeless shelters, adult residential treatment programs, adult living facilities, schools, daycare centers, and outpatient offices.  I was the host of an internet radio talk show "Ask Your Therapist."  I am a co-author of a book.

I have been the owner/therapist of Better Day Counseling, a private counseling practice in Altamonte Springs, since December 2000.  I am on the insurance panels of the largest insurance companies, as well as accepting private pay clients.

I adore human beings and enjoy helping individuals of all ages, from toddlers to seniors.  It is my calling as a results-oriented therapist to help individuals, couples, and families break old patterns and make positive and lasting changes in their lives.
