Vicki became a therapist because of her desire to help people reach their fullest potential by overcoming their difficulties and making changes to live a healthier, happier life. Using an approach that combines Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Reality Theory and Person-Centered techniques, Vicki works to facilitate an environment of hope and healing; to integrate faith, grace, and proven psychological principles with individuals, couples and families as they work through their difficulties and goals towards greater personal growth and wellness. Vicki and her husband, Tim, have three children and two grandchildren. As the mother of an autistic young man, she understands the challenges as well as the joys that come with raising a child with special needs, and together with her family is an active advocate for children and families of children with autism.
