I have twelve years experience in providing therapy for different populations. I particularly enjoy working with adolescents and children where I have vast experience in the areas of ADHD, depression, anxiety, abuse, neglect and forensic issues. I also enjoy working with adults to tackle many life issues that have effected their lives. I have experience in providing therapy for those involved in surgical barriatric procedures. I am currently offering Sandplay in my practice. I am a Certified Disaster Mental Health Response Specialist. My clients note that they appreciate the compassion and straightforwardness I bring to the therapy encounter.

I also have experience working with those who have developmental disabilities. their families and care givers. There are unique issues related to this population and their psychological needs. I worked in this field for thirteen years before leaving for private practice.

I have a Psy. D. in Forensic Psychology and have experience working with both victims and defendants and their families.
