About

Work with youth and families is the sole focus of my practice. Many of the youth in my practice benefit from parental involvement. My practice is open evenings to accommodate school schedules. I have 20 + years of clinical experience as a child mental health specialist. Change primarily occurs away from the office working on coping skills and strategies learned during therapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a primary form of treatment; however, other forms of therapy may be implemented. A WSU summa cum laude graduate, received my MSW in 1996 and WA State Licensed. It is a privilege to work with area youth and their families.
The wide range of issues that have had a positive outcome include: Anxiety, Depression, Suicidal Ideation, Grief and Loss, Trauma, Asperger's, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Attachment issues, Attention Deficit Disorders and Executive Functioning Problems.
Meeting the needs of the entire family system involves working afternoon and evenings. Collaborating with parents, other professionals, school staff, etc. as needed provides the best treatment possible to meet the unique needs of each youth. Treatment is individualized to each person with professionalism.
