As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor, I seek to provide clients with tools to improve their lives and to effectively deal with the difficulties and stresses of life. I assist individuals, couples, and families in resolving issues which are causing tension in their relationships, while developing skills for successful, more positive interactions with others. If you choose to examine and change patterns or behaviors that are currently not working for you, it would be my pleasure to work with you to accomplish such goals.

Play therapy has been shown to be one of the more effective methods for counseling children. Young people are often unable to identify, or they are hesitant to talk about, the issues causing them distress. As a highly trained and experienced Registered Play Therapist, I can help.

My qualifications as a mediator and parenting coordinator enable me to effectively assist adults experiencing difficulty agreeing on how to proceed in divorce, child custody and visitation, coparenting, or eldercare issues. Through mediation, I can assist family members who are struggling with difficult decisions regarding long-term care for a loved one.
