Wit Director

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist – MA, LMFT, LPCC

Relationships matter. Communication is central. Without a doubt, the most common focus my clients have when they enter my office is stress related to communication and conflict, either at home or at work. For 25 years I have listened to story after story of how difficult, frustrating, irritating and time-consuming it is to find help – excellent help. That’s why I formed WIT Professionals.

WIT’s unique model takes the mystery and time out of resourcing leaders, teams and individuals with wellness solutions, provides continuity over time so communication strategies ‘stick’, saves people an extraordinary amount of time, money and bottom line….helps people when situations unexpectedly arise!
