In my private life, I like to read and throw clay on a wheel. I also like to invest in real estate, learn new things, and spend time traveling. My husband and I have been to California, Arizona, Minnesota, New York City, and all up and down the east coast together. Having both grown up in Gainesville, FL the home of the University of Florida, my husband and I are Gator fans. Well, really I follow his passion on this one!
For over 18 years I have been working with couples and families to help them create healthier, more fulfilling relationships. I have a private practice in Asheville, North Carolina. In addition to my work as a family therapist, I am also a Success Coach working with professionals to help them grow their businesses and careers as well as improve on the success they have already achieved.
I also provide professional speaking services, presenting topics such as my very own blueprint for success – The ABC Success System, as well as Influential Communication and Top Stress-Busting Tips. I have presented these topics to a variety of organizations such as the Asheville Optimists, Young Professionals of Asheville, the Asheville chapter of the American Business Women’s Association and Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College’s Professional Development Department.
I am a regular newsletter contributor for the Asheville chapter of the American Business Women’s Association. I publish my own monthly newsletter that you can sign up for here on my website.
I have accomplished a personal goal recently by publishing my new audio book – Happy Marriages – 7 Secrets of Couples Who Found and Kept Long Term Love. In the book you are given valuable insight into what has worked for these couples, from the stories they share about their successful relationships. I share these stories from the belief that everyone deserves a healthy, fulfilling long term relationship with a partner who cherishes and adores the person they are. “There are lots of great books out there about saving a marriage, here is one about creating and keeping a marriage that truly is long and loving, from the people who have done it. What are you waiting for?” The book is available here on my website.
