With a life of experiences, trauma, transitions in stages, losses, and multiple achievements, despite these issues; Each hardship has increased courage and perseverance. With skill sets of nurse assistance, the instruction of exercise and nutrition, landlord, office management, director of activities, foster parenting, parenting, marriage and blended family issues; and also counseling-then I find these beneficial as I work with a vast array of different issues.
I have 9 grandchildren as of March of 2020; and half of them are in the special needs population (some more serious than others). I have experienced infertility, divorce, remarriage, and am with birth defects myself. I play several instruments, sing, write poetry and music, and am an artist; and have 4 degrees from 3 universities with the highest honors.
Each of these biographic topics have resulted in who I am today. The hardships grew me, and the blessings made me grateful. I take a holistic and eclectic approach as I reach out to walk alongside my clients. I have 3 counselors in my office who also bring their gifts and their experiences. We have many networks and offer a sliding scale. Our website with much information is: www.healhopecounseling.com which will include much more information and photos of our office and counselors. WE do use both in office and also telehealth for our clients which helps us to provide services for more individuals, do certified classes, and adapt to any emergency.
