"I enjoy working with people of all ages with any struggles they may be dealing with. I start treatment where people are emotionally with the issue and choose a pace comfortable for them. I am not a "certified" expert with any particular issue nor do I use a single therapeutic approach for each person and each problem. I do, however, have a wealth of experience and knowledge from my years of experience and ongoing education and trainings. If there is an issue I don't feel I can address with enough depth I would offer appropriate referrals to someone who could help more."

"The angry, argumentative, and underperforming child is often seen by others as the product of lax parenting. This unfortunate characterization has had a great impact on the way our children are viewed by schools, employers, and society in general.

I understand the daily struggles parents routinely face. I know how school performance, relationships, and behavior are impacted when children struggle.

"Life gets tough sometimes and everyone needs a little help. Sometimes that help comes from friends or family, but other times that help can come from a professional. Reaching out to a counselor is tough but frequently can be the first step towards improvement in life.
