I grew up in Alaska and have lived various places until moving to Nashville in 2008. My husband and I have five adult children and a growing number of in-laws and grandchildren. Our family is a focus of my life and we travel frequently since our children live in four other cities.
I am an outdoor lover, including hiking, gardening and traveling. I also enjoy remodeling and updating homes, which my husband and I have done multiple times.
I graduated from Harding Graduate School of Religion in Memphis, Tennessee with my Master’s in Counseling.
I received certification as a sex addiction therapist (CSAT) from the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals under the direction of Patrick Carnes, a pioneer in the field of sexual addiction recovery. I am certified as an EMDR therapist as well as trained in a Somatic EMDR.
