Career

I’m in Private Practice as a Board Certified Master Christian Life Coach & Licensed Marital and Family Therapist. I’ve been doing therapy for over 22 years with couples, families, and individuals. I taught counseling courses at Capital Bible College in Sacramento for 12 years. The Lord has been moving my focus over the last several years to working with those in Christian Leadership. I truly enjoy coaching pastors, their families and their teams to live more balanced and healthy lives.
