I see my role as a guide for parents to help their children and for clients to find the answers that lie within.
3/26/22: Limited availably. I am a board-certified art therapist and licensed professional counselor with 14 years of clinical experience. I specialize in early childhood mental health but work with all ages. I trust in the wisdom of clients (even the youngest ones!) and their abilities to explore their own themes, symbols, and stories. Because we all develop our senses of self and safety within the context of early relationships, I feel that family/relationship-based work is essential. My art and play therapy practice is trauma and Polyvagal Theory-informed. My approach is flexible, solution-focused, and non-judgmental.

Life will be difficult at times and we do well to walk it together. Proverbs says, "As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." What I offer is simply this; to walk with you - and/or your child - through whatever you're facing and help you see it through God's eyes as revealed in scripture. To clarify with proper perspective what has happened and what is happening now is helpful. What even better is knowing what we have to look forward to. "Gospel" means good news and I guarantee that there is great news for you. There's an abundant life promised to you by God Himself. If you want to be well, we should talk.

***NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME*** .: Your Love and Concern for your child or teen brought you here :. To the parent(s) or caregiver(s) who may be feeling worried, stressed, overwhelmed, or unsure on what to do, I am here to help. You may have tried everything you could, but your child or teen continues to have a hard time. Or maybe a teacher or doctor suggested your child or teen could benefit from additional supports and that is just what you are doing. Your efforts do not go unnoticed. Parenting is hard work, and it is even harder when your child or teen is experiencing emotional and behavioral difficulties.

My 30+ year career in psychology began with a specialty in the behavior problems of children and adolescents. Although this continues as a specialty, my practice has evolved to include adult, marital, and family issues. I place a strong emphasis on enhancing family harmony and cohesiveness through "common sense" parenting and developing sound marital relationships. I am aware that certain adult mental health issues may negatively impact family functioning. In some instances those adult issues need to be addressed first. I attempt to include the school and other agencies in the treatment plan when indicated.

My wife and I are also parenting a child with profound special needs.
It may be a touch melodramatic to say this yet I believe reaching out for therapy is courageous. I so enjoy my work as I am routinely deeply touched by the courage I see from clients in my office every day! Therapy here is a collaborative struggle together. It is also a very personal process as a therapist's greatest gifts usually come from her/his own

I specialize in the treatment of children , teens, and families within my private practice.
The process of beginning therapy is so hard. In fact, getting started often keeps people stuck. I understand this and I strive to help with all stages of the therapy process. We will begin with a diagnostic evaluation that will allow you to share what has brought you into treatment, will allow me to collect all relevant information needed, and we will discuss the beginning stages of treatment. Then weekly or bi-weekly appointments will provide the support you need. You will find that I will check in with you, we will consistently assess progress, and we will shift the course of treatment as necessary to meet your needs

Regardless of whether you or your child have experienced a sudden death of a loved one, sexual abuse, domestic violence, community violence, know that you do not need to go through it alone.
Interpersonal relationships shape the way we see and interact with the world around us. Experiencing trauma can turn our lives upside down and take a toll on our relationships. While each individual has a unique reaction to their circumstance, many feel vulnerable and confused about what is safe, others may be overwhelmed by feelings of hopelessness, anger, or depression. Trauma impacts the person who endured the experience and those that they love. I provide a nurturing environment that fosters emotional wellness and healing. A place where young people and families can acquire the skills necessary for lasting change.
