I understand the daily challenges of parenthood, having raised two children. I have experience with a wide variety of children in a number of settings including counseling children in foster care, conducting home studies for prospective adoptive parents and working with pregnant and parenting teens. During the past 22 years, I have been employed as a guidance counselor with the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools for both middle school and elementary school children. I have volunteered as a group leader for girls at Hospice/Palliative Care's Camp Carousel and, in April 2013, received the Camp Carousel Award for Outstanding Volunteer. My experience in the school system and service agencies has given me insight into the complex world of today's child.

As a counselor, it is very important that the children I work with are comfortable with me. During our time together, my clients and I develop a relationship of mutual trust and respect. I provide acceptance and support for the client so that they can comfortably and confidently move forward on their journey toward positive change.
