How did I get
here?


"I became a counselor because of my own experiences in counseling.  I wanted to help others change their lives, just as mine had.
 
Coastal Light Counseling was a vision that began during graduate school. It has been a blessing to be able to create something that can positively impact so many.

My career has now evolved into writing & speaking in order to educate the public about narcissistic abuse and the impacts of pathological narcissism in society "

Why do I do what
I do?



"Witnessing people transform their lives for the better is so rewarding.  And what more could I ask for than to be someone who helps them get there.  You know it's the right career when it doesn't feel like a job."

Who am I outside the
office?

"In addition to being a psychotherapist, author & speaker, I am a wife and mother of two teenagers.  We have a beautiful German Shepherd, Kyah, who is my retired therapy dog and counseling partner!  Being a very spiritual person shapes who I am and my desire to serve others through counseling.  I believe in accepting, not judging, so welcoming and working with people from any faith or no faith, and not pushing my beliefs on them, is something I strongly value and a core value I have established for the practice.
