Crossing the River

Get to Know Me

I was born and raised in the Ozarks.  I am a married mother of three awesome and challenging children.  We have 3 cats and a dog who complete our family.

I received my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Child/Family Development from University Missouri-Columbia.  I received my Master's in Counseling from Missouri State University.  I have been working in the Mental Health Field for over 30 years.  I absolutely love what I do.  It is an honor to sit along side people and help them navigate very difficult past and present experiences in their lives.  

In my spare time, I am typically outdoors.  I enjoy camping/hiking/kayaking with friends, hanging out at the lake with family, volunteering, reading, watching crime shows, sports, and I love to laugh!

Spirituality is an important part of who I am as well.  I believe in standing up for minorities and fighting for injustices in this world.  I believe that God loves all of His children.
