Please note the following important dates: July and August 2024: Telehealth appts will be available. September 2024: New office opens in Goodyear, AZ. My areas of interest and treatment focus include stress management, life changes, relationship issues, parenting, anxiety, depression, trauma/ PTSD, parent child relationship, self-esteem, and grief and loss. I have a substantial background in hospital/medical social work assisting patients and their families as they go through illnesses or injuries. I have also worked in hospice and helped patients of all ages and their families through the end-of-life process and bereavement.
I take a holistic approach in treating my patients including traditional talk therapy, strength based, trauma focused and mindfulness-based techniques. I approach each patient with compassion, genuineness, creativity, humor, and a non-judgmental outlook.
No matter what you are going through today, I am here to help achieve happiness with the direction your life is heading. I believe that happiness and fulfillment are possible for everyone, and through therapy, you will learn strategies to more effectively address the challenges you face.
