While the Asheville area has one of the most tight-knit, dynamic, and visible LGBTQAI+ communities in the South, there is a void when it comes to ongoing, low-cost, high FUN recreational sports (like kickball, bowling, flag football, corn hole, and more) to gather around while interacting socially. We’re happy to announce Asheville as the 17th city to join the Stonewall Sports family to fill this void not only for LGBTQ residents, but also allies.
Stonewall Sports Asheville seeks teammates, volunteers, supporters, and friends to establish this affordable, accessible, community-based non-profit sports league with a mission to value each player for who they are and what they bring to the league’s community. We believe every person should have the ability to feel comfortable being themselves in organized sports.

I work with individual adults with concerns like: family history issues, relationship concerns, life satisfaction issues (related to jobs, living situations or relationships), anxiety and depression. I’ve had a particular focus on working with couples, addressing every aspect of relationship challenges – relationship dissatisfaction/boredom, affairs, sexual/intimacy issues, etc. And I was a civilian counselor on military bases for several years, so I have a clear understanding of the unique pressures and challenges facing service members and families. I offer free phone consultations.

For many years now I have been mentoring men and women from all walks of life. It continues to be my greatest joy to accompany someone from “just being ok” into thriving! As a Mentor & Healer I partner with my clients in creating authenticity, wellness and deep contentment, in whatever area of their lives they are seeking change. The combination of giving very practical, livable tools for direct “next steps” while “holding the big picture” and then manifesting that big picture often feels like this: a new client brings me their life or life situation in a jigsaw puzzle box, they lost the lid and forgot what the picture on it looked like. I am good at knowing that picture and then guiding my clients/mentees to put all the puzzle pieces together.
