I am living my dream!
It has been a long but worthy journey. The first part of my career was spent in the field of early childhood education, as an expert on the subject, beginning as a teacher, then over 20 years becoming a center director, board member on various child-center committees, and for volunteer for youth services. In my late twenties I was diagnosed with a chronic illness. Nevertheless, I earned my Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2007 and began working with a wide variety of clients in Missouri, Indiana and Florida training and practicing in Brief-Solution Focused Therapy before returning back to Kansas City. It was then in my early forties I began to become severely disabled and over the next decade, struggled with the severity of it's symptoms and unable to leave my home. Yet I persevered and overcame the worst part of my illness and life, getting a second chance to start life over.
Now I apply this underused modality of positivity and perspective-shifting solutions as the base with most of my clients. I am applying the same skills and utilizing the same methodologies for business applications and hopefully someday making a Solution Focused Preventative mental health. I am an eclectic practitioner in that I do draw other modalities when necessary or applicable. I love being back in my hometown and being near my friends and family. I also have a virtual business in social media marketing management and I am a Disaster Relief Volunteer for the Red Cross. People are my passion and my calling to help others, even if it's driving for Uber on the weekends to make sure people make it to their destinations safely.
One year later...
Thank you so much to all my clients who have made my practice successful! I am grateful to be doing a job I truly love. We have one office to serve Kansas City and online appointments for those at a distance. We are adding services as we see needs and becoming truly need-based.
Thank you for stopping by and reading about me. I truly hope I can help you on your journey to the right path for you. I am ready to go whenever you are.
