I love to be with my family and to take mini-vacations. I love to golf and fly fish. I have to buy most of my clothes online because I am too big for regular stores, especially when it comes to shoes!

I take a holistic view toward life. We are all a product of our environment. We all have some kind of wound, it just depends on how we have treated it.
My basic philosophy is being safe and treating clients with compassion and empathy. I work along side them to help them succeed in their goals.
