   Registered Nurse


I am a graduate of Indiana University and hold degrees in nursing, psychology, and social work. I have been a registered nurse for nearly 40 years. As a nurse, we oftentimes function as psychologists, social workers, and various other professions as well. Such was the case when I worked as a school nurse for over 20 years working exclusively with children who have intense physical, medical, mental and emotional needs. Additionally, I worked with their families who also have issues, needs, and concerns of their own.

I have also worked in private practice for approximately 15 years. Solution focused therapy is future-focused, goal-oriented brief therapy; it places emphasis on a person's present and future goals rather than focusing on the past. The emphasis is on what is possible...what is changeable. We are each comprised of mind, spirit, and body. It is impossible to separate those entities; it is integrable...unifying. As both a Registered Nurse and Social Worker, I take into account the integrative experiences and am holistic in my therapeutic approach.
