Reaching out to a counselor is not an easy decision. I get that.

How much can you trust a stranger with the crisis in your life? And with so much going on, how are you going to fit in One. More. Thing?  

In fact, I often feel like one of those circus performers who is trying desperately to keep all of the plates spinning on those skinny sticks so that one doesn’t come crashing down. You know the ones I’m talking about. One plate is the doctor appointments, another plate is meeting deadlines at work, and the most wobbly plate is figuring out how to get a decent meal on the table a couple of times a week. And let’s not even think about homework.

Seriously, it's stressful to handle parenting, school struggles, family relationships all while getting the bathrooms cleaned once in a while. #lifegoals

Luckily, I love a good challenge. I am fascinated by learning what makes people tick and finding out how people solve problems. I suppose that is what motivated me to earn my Masters in Social Work, Masters in Educational Leadership, and earn my National Certification in Exceptional Needs. I know what you’re thinking- lady, you need a hobby. And you’re probably right. I’m working on it, and when I’m not teaching or counseling, I am a book club nerd and podcast enthusiast. Because it is the stories that make life interesting.

In fact, that’s how I handle getting those bathrooms cleaned! Little known fact- Mr. Clean is more effective when you have headphones in your ears and a podcast in your pocket.

If you feel like we would be a good team, and you are looking for some support with your own struggles or with finding ways to help your child be successful in school, reach out to me.
