About Your Therapist

I would like to tell you a little about myself.  I have been in Central Florida helping people improve their lives for over 30 years.  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 35 years.  I have been married to the same man for 37 years, and have one adult daughter.

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 have been the owner/therapist of A Better Day, 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.
