Helping others has been a passion for me since I was young. When death and depression affected my family, I learned the power of support and encouragement. After graduating from High School, I attended a year of Bible School in New York to learn and understand the Bible. I was also a Jr. High Camp Counselor. After returning home and refilling my savings account, I attended Christian Heritage College (now San Diego Christian) earning a degree in Biblical Psychology. Returning to Michigan, I managed a Christian bookstore for a few years before enrolling at Western Michigan University, graduating with a Master's Degree in Counseling/Psychology. And I got married!

I practiced a few years before having babies and relocating to Troy/Rochester Hills area. While being a full-time, stay at home mom, I volunteered at my church and co-led a Women's Issues support group dealing with adult survivors of sexual abuse. My support group members wanted to enter individual therapy with me so in 2005 I reopened Key Counseling. Currently I am seeing clients 20 hours per week. I am fortunate to use my spiritual gift and career in combination.

Thanks for taking time to read about me. We have 2 daughters and 1 son and a son-in-law. I am always eager to meet new people in order to encourage them in their spiritual, emotional and physical health.

"He [the Lord] will be the sure foundation for your times,

A rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge;

The fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure."

Isaiah 33:6 NIV
