I was raised in a Michigan and moved to Indiana after meeting my husband. I have older stepchildren who have long been out of the house. We have an amazing son, 3 dogs and a cat….yes we are outnumbered by our pets. We also have a grandson too! I didn’t start out planning on being a counselor; as a matter of fact I was in a business related field. However, when I discovered I was enjoying my volunteer work better than my “day job”, I knew I needed to get my Masters in Social Work. Since receiving my Graduate degree, I have worked in a variety of mental health settings from school social work to medical social work to community mental health to inpatient hospitals while always maintaining some private practice work on the side. In 2009 I started New Outlook Counseling Center, just myself in a small office space and since then I have grown into having two practice locations, 16 clinicians, a CNS, a medical assistant, and 3 admin staff. The practices offer both in person and tele health. I have been extremely successful helping many clients and wanted to offer my expertise to other clinicians to help clients and have a successful business. When I am not providing therapy and running a business, I am enjoying time with family, traveling, relaxing in the pool and watching Netflix.
