My approach with clients recognizes that most people are looking for tangible help, don't have a lot of time between work and family, and want to feel like they are moving toward a better understanding of solutions to address their difficulties. My work with clients acknowledges these issues. I take a very active role in counseling to explore the options with my clients, provide new knowlege of issues where relevant, and help an individual to reach their potential. Issues related to marital/partner, parenting /child, family,work,school,stress, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse are all areas I work with.

A year round Teen Girls Group and parenting workshops are provided as services.
Like a butterfly emerging into life, a child requires nurturance, safety, and care. I believe in supporting child and adolescent emotional growth and developmental processes throughout the life cycle especially when healing from adversity is necessary. My approach is collaborative working closely with the parents, schools, and collaterals involved to enhance over all well-being in every capacity of the child's environment. Stemming from a strength-based perspective, using play and expressive art therapies, CBT/DBT, and Somatic Experiencing as theoretical approaches have proven to provide the best outcomes in healing and growth.

Working in a variety of settings over many years, I have developed an expertise in many different areas including but not limited to trauma, autism spectrum disorders, developmental transitions, depression, anxiety, parenting , and sexual identity.
Everyday living is not without stressors. How we react to events or interact in relationships can be a struggle as well as puzzling. Why do we feel the way we do? Why do we continue to make the same mistakes over and over again? How can our perceptions be so different from others? How do early experiences impact our perceptions, feelings, and behaviors? I provide a safe, comforting environment for you to explore and reflect on your past and recent experiences, feelings, and relationships. My approach is to facilitate change based on your expressed needs and goals.
