I am a licensed clinical therapist with over 20 years of experience working with children, teens, and adults with a wide array of emotional, cognitive and behavioral concerns. I am currently serving the Lake County area at Counseling and Behavioral Solutions, Inc in Leesburg but have worked in outpatient agencies, inpatient settings, and within the public school system.

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 work with a lot of highly successful people. The research shows that successful people have a strong support system which helps them to continue to grow and prosper in all areas of their lives: relationally, financially, spiritually. I have found the same to be true in my life: the more people I have helping me figure things, holding me accountable when my choices aren't aligning with my values, and sharing and supporting my vision of my life's dreams with me, the bigger and better life continues to get. A good therapeutic relationship can help in all of these areas, and help you move beyond the places where you get stuck.
My passion is to work with clients who have become overwhelmed with the pressures of life and need a compassionate and non critical perspective to help them navigate the often difficult terrain of life. While motivation is helpful I am completely comfortable with helping clients explore their own reluctance in facing the painful realities of their life. I am particularly drawn to clients who have experienced trauma, rejection, abandonment, and/or abuse. My considerable life, parenting, and professional experience has truly endeared me to clients who are simply overwhelmed and need gentle guidance to find their way.

My hope is to create a space where you feel heard and seen and where you can openly share your about yourself.
