experience as a therapist in community mental health programs, in private therapy with residents of local long term care facilities, and as an administrator at Franciscan Healthcare Center. My experience with the elderly and their families provides a unique perspective into the dynamics of family relationships.
Spirituality has long been an interest. I have been a spiritual director and supervisor for more than 25 years including work with the Archdiocese of Louisville’s Spirituality Institute. Most recently, I have presented Spirituality of Aging seminars at local churches. Should a client wish to pursue therapy from a spiritual perspective, I am comfortable with such an approach.
A compassionate listener, I believe my strength lies in helping others discern direction in their lives. Others say that I work from a calm, grounded center as I provide guidance to those seeking balance and emotional well-being. My encouraging, client-centered approach to treatment is focused on bringing clarity and peace in times of stress, grief, or loss.
