About Me

Experienced Coaching Professional

I enjoy being an agent for positive change and have had the privilege of working for wonderful clients throughout my career. 


I began my career as a Med Tech, running a lab in Wauwatosa for five pediatricians. After my children were a little bit older, I attended UWM, earning a BSW in 1987, and worked in addictions as a psychotherapist at Elm Brook Memorial Hospital. 


Since 1992, I have run a private practice in Elm Grove, doing individual, couples and group therapy, as well as retreats. 


When I’m not working with my clients, I am pursuing my other passions of cooking, traveling and hiking with my husband.
