Reaching for Help, Finding Hope

I founded Koru Counseling and Consulting because I needed to return to my passion of providing direct care to clients. For several years, I worked in addiction and mental health agencies as an individual, relationship, family, and group counselor. I moved into administration as a program manager and then eventually as an executive director. I began feeling lost and disconnected from my original vision of being a therapist and realized I needed to follow my heart. I needed to return to my roots, which led me to opening my private practice. I look forward to helping you rediscover your path for a fulfilling life.
