I believe within every problem there is a solution. Together with clients, I strive to find solutions so they may grow and achieve success even during life stressors. I believe for therapy to be successful, the therapist must create an environment where clients feel unconditional positive regard, genuineness and empathy. In a fully supportive environment the client can begin to understand their problems and work towards resolving them and changing the direction of their lives. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor & Clinical Supervisor, a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, a Registered Play Therapist & Clinical Supervisor and a National Certified School Counselor.

A family orientation coupled with rigorous training requirements make Marriage and Family Therapists uniquely qualified to provide mental health services. Family Therapists are trained in various modes of therapy in order to assist clients with relationship, career and various other life stressors.

I provide play therapy which is defined by the Association for Play Therapists as "the systematic use of a theoretical model to establish an interpersonal process wherein trained play therapists use the therapeutic powers of play to help clients prevent or resolve psychosocial difficulties and achieve optimal growth and development."
