About

It is a humbling experience to work with individuals during times of difficulty. The emotions and behaviors of someone who is suffering can be intense. I know that many people, during times of crisis, just want the pain to end and have the problem resolved. Therapy can assist in that process. I believe God has called on me to help others face their suffering and I feel honored when people invite me to help them make changes in their lives. By integrating therapeutic expertise with God's direction, guidance and love, great change and healing is possible.
I have been a social worker since 1992 and began my practice at Desert Streams in 2007. In my career, I have worked extensively in the child welfare system as well as the school setting. I consider trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, and women's issues to be my areas of specialty. I offer a safe, non-judgmental place to begin the healing process.
Taking the first step, making that first phone call to a therapist is the hardest part. When you schedule an appointment with me, I promise to do my best to make the process as comfortable as possible. You are the reason I am here. I hope you will find peace and hope as you begin the healing process.
