Hello! Thank you for stopping by. I am a Social Worker and therapist with 20 years experience in the mental health field. What sets me apart though? I have a very passionate, upbeat personality that shines through in my practice. I work hard to help my clients see the strength they already have within and that I am just a facilitator to help them achieve any goal they set forth for themselves. I am honest and "real". I would be happy to chat with you about your goals and how we can work to achieve them together!
With 17 years specializing in Autism Spectrum Disorders, I bring a unique therapeutic experience to families in all phases of life from diagnosis, treatment, to adult transition planning. Families touched by Special Needs often need something other than traditional talk therapy and that is something I provide.
In addition to expertise in Autism Spectrum Disorder and Intellectual and Developmental disabilities, I work very well with young children with play therapy techniques, adolescents, and adults experiencing Adjustment Disorders, Anxiety, and Depression. Individual, Family, and Group therapy are all offered at my practice.
