** ONLY AVAILABILITY IS FOR TUESDAY MORNING/EARLY AFTERNOON** As a clinical social worker, my goal is to guide children, adults, and families to identify and utilize their strengths to make the changes they want to make. I expect my clients to work as hard as, if not harder, than me to achieve their goals. I believe that the best ways to do this are through a supportive, therapeutic relationship and with an individualized treatment approach. The majority of my 15 years of social work experience has been with children and families. I will work with children as young as 2 as well as with adults.

I have worked closely with the child welfare system and primarily with individuals with a trauma history. I also have experience utilizing behavior modification and parenting education with children with challenging behaviors and their families. In addition, I frequently work with individuals diagnosed with mood disorders and anxiety.

My practice is unique in that I do not have an office but will meet with you and/or your child in the comfort of your own home. For some people, home-based counseling is not only more convenient, but makes the idea of counseling less intimidating or overwhelming.
