Announcement icon This office will continue to provide services for clients through Telehealth (e.g., video or phone). Most health insurances are accepted.
My motto is "try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud". I enjoy working with individuals, groups, and families from all ages seeking ways to grow socially, emotionally, and behaviorally. I welcome all "walks of life" from various cultural backgrounds who are facing challenges with trauma, mental health disorders, Autism, Intellectual Disabilities, LGBTQ+, Youth in Care, family dynamics, and many more. This office provides Telehealth Services and face-to-face sessions.
I specialize in Cultural/Diversity, ADHD, Infant Mental Health, Autism, Youth in Care/Foster Care, Social Skills, Self-Esteem Issues, Behavior Management, Grief/Loss/Trauma, Family Therapy, Self-Injurious Behaviors, Developmental Disabilities, Special Education and Testing/Evaluation.
I incorporate in my clinical social work practice a wide range of interventions such as arts/craft, blogs, play, traditional, and many more. You will find your experience uplifting, and educational. Regardless of the problem, lets work together to find ways to help you to improve your overall well-being.
