I work with complex trauma in clients of all ages and demographics; I hold an advanced certification in addictions treatment and I am effective with group work, the family system and individual therapy.
One of the first things asked of me when creating this website profile was to describe my ideal client. I don't think I have an ideal client. To me that implies that I can pick and choose my client's problems, symptoms, relationships, and so forth, and it's that same individuality and variety of people and presenting concerns that I value. I wouldn't change that if I could. I meet a lot of people who don't really know what they need or cannot visualize/verbalize their true goals. Discovery can be a part of the therapeutic process.

Hello! I have been working with children, adolescents and families for more than 10 years. I work well with Oppositional Defiance, Aggression, Behavioral Issues and Conflict Resolution. I have heard many times from my clients that I am "not like other therapists" and I have a way of interacting with pre-teens and teenagers so that they feel validated and heard. I have a passion for understanding others and those around me in a way that they feel comfortable. The relationship between therapist and client should be unique and creative.

I believe in order to make a positive change you must be empowered to create the change you desire. Many times I see clients struggle because situations have happened to them and they identify with the hurt that has been caused. In order for growth to occur individuals need to be in charge of their own life’s circumstances. As a therapist my purpose is to guide my clients toward the goals they seek in order to manage their lives effectively.
