I earned my Bachelor's degree from Appalachian State University and my Master's degree in Psychology, with a concentration in School Counseling from Capella University.  I'm a mother of two wonderful daughters, Laci and Grace, both graduates from the Randolph County School System.

 “My life isn't good or bad. It's an incredible series of emotional and mental extremes, with beautiful thunderstorms and stunning sunrises."

“All the external adoration, respect and adulation in the world, can't drown out the internal voices that tell us, we are not good enough and unworthy of; happiness, love and an abundant life. When we need others to tell us we're amazing, worthy and lovable, in order to feel good about ourselves, it is never enough.  It goes into the bottomless pit where our inherent self-worth should be.  It may feel like we are reaching out to receive love, but in actuality, we are seeking external noise to help drown out our negative core beliefs.

Love blossoms from the inside out. That is why it is so important to do the work necessary to heal our emotional wounds, to love ourselves and stand strong in who we are.  Only then, are we truly free to give and receive love, unconditionally and in abundance.”
