About Me

Hi!  I've lived in Milwaukee for over 35 years and love it here.  Raised outside of Chicago, I value the warmth and friendliness of Midwesterners and enjoy living and working in the beauty of Wisconsin. 

                                             I have two grown children. My son and his family live here in the Milwaukee area and my                                                         daughter and her family live in Denver. I have two granddaughters, 1 and 2 years old. It's the                                                                                                best! In my free time I enjoy my family and friends, reading,                                                                                                         gardening, hiking, studying french, curling, Pilates, and playing the                                                                                              piano. 

                                                                                        My undergraduate degree is in Philosophy, Religion, and                                                                                                                French from Purdue University and I received a master's degree                                                                                                    in Social Work from the University of  Chicago.                                                                                                                              After moving to Wisconsin I completed a two-year post-                                                                                                                graduate program at the Family Therapy Training                                                                                                                            Institute of Milwaukee. I am licensed in both Clinical Social Work                                                                                                and Marriage and Family Therapy.
                                              A new addition to my practice is a puppy therapy-dog-in-training. His name is Remi and he's                                                  a miniature labradoodle. Some of my virtual clients now come in because they want the snuggles, but he's still learning that not everyone likes their faces washed!

My clinic is Growing Wisdom Psychotherapy, located in Glendale WI.
