Tired? Lost? Angry? Hopeless? Can't stop? Don't know where to start? Need someone to understand? Whether you are struggling with parenting your children or clinical depression, childhood trauma or an addiction, let me help you to uncover the solution for your specific problem. I treat a wide range of behavioral and mental health issues. Whether you are eight or eighty, you are developing as a person. You need support which acknowledges your need and ability to grow across your entire lifespan. Give yourself, your child, your friend, or your whole family the gift of therapy.
I use an eclectic strengths-based approach involving a dynamic blend of classic talk therapies, hands-on experiential therapies, life skills development and spirituality. My deepest desire is to help each person reach his or her fullest potential. In order to do this, we must overcome life's obstacles.
I served in the US Army for over 12 years and worked as a Foster Care Social Worker for over 7 years. These experiences developed a deep sense of compassion for the needs of my neighbors, young and old. I have extensive training in trauma, addictions, parenting, and child development.

Adolescent Socialization Group

This group provides a safe environment for teens (13-17) to discuss their lives, difficulties, and common interests.

More about this group

Rally Point

The Rally Point is a group which gives veterans and first responders an opportunity to support one another using common culture and language as a unifying experience. This group is designed to provide mental and emotional relief to the people who give themselves for others and often experience compassion fatigue because we care so deeply.
