I value the relationship between the therapist and client. I believe that honesty, trust, acceptance, and humor are important for the therapeutic relationship. I am passionate about helping people identify their goals and work towards them.  Due to my extensive work history, I specialize in working with children and adolescents.  I have training in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy and I like to incorporate several different modalities into treatment with clients.  I have experience working with clients through grief and loss, divorce related issues, exposure to trauma, self-harming behaviors, depression, anxiety and other emotional issues.  Hands-on activities are often used to help children express their feelings in therapy.

    My practice is not solely directed towards children and adolescents as I have expanded my knowledge and experience in working with adults who have struggle with relationships, codependency issues, anxiety, trauma, depression or other mental health issues.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to set up an appointment.  I look forward to hearing from  you!
