I am a charismatic, dynamic, and dedicated therapist who offers individual, family, and group therapy to children, adolescents, and adults. My experience as an Emergency Crisis Intervention Clinician has enhanced my ability to rapidly engage with clients, develop immediate treatment and safety plans, increase clients' coping skills, conduct risk assessments as/if needed, and provide psychoeducation and advocacy.

As a Crisis Clinician I worked with suicidal, homicidal, and self-injurious youth. Referrals were from caregivers, schools, ERs, law enforcement, community providers, etc. In addition to unsafe and disruptive behaviors, presenting problems included peer/family conflict, school refusal, self-esteem issues, education problems, substance use/dependence, court/legal involvement.

With multiple providers, including an Alcohol & Drug Counselor, New Beginnings Behavioral Health allows clients and families to receive services conveniently. We offer groups including: Uniformed Services Peer Council, Veterans Group, Kids Group, and TREM -Trauma Recovery Empowerment Model. The Teen Girls and LGBTQ groups are Inactive, pending interest/members.
