The scope of my therapy practice is based on the belief that children are growing, developing individuals who at times need assistance beyond their families and school structures to develop emotional and social skills, self confidence, and coping skills to handle stressors. Children are often more open than adults to change and I absolutely love getting to see them transform and grow. I work with children and adolescents ages 4 to 18.

Are you having trouble with controlling your anger? What about family conflict, grief and loss, or even anxiety and/or depression? Does your child have difficulty concentrating, putting their thoughts in order, or behavioral issues? Does your child need someone to talk to about future plans and goals?

I work with Military service members and their dependents, children and families involved with CPS, foster children , foster parents, developing cooperative behavior management plans and conduct individual child , adult and family counseling.
It is my goal to see the light reignite in a person's eye after they have given up hope for change. I have over 25 years of experience working collaboratively with my clients to find what works for them. I do not have preconceived notions of how to "fix" anyone. We work together to chip away at the issues and create a working plan that helps clients leave feeling better than before after each session. I work within the confines of the client's situation and help with creating realistic and viable solutions. The client plays an active role in my counseling practice.

Children often do not have the words and vocabulary to fully express everything that has happened or how it has impacted them. When given a safe and nurturing environment in which a child can feel comfortable expressing feelings and working through life's obstacles, so much can be positively accomplished regardless of what a child may be going through. I am passionate about meeting each child where he or she is at emotionally by providing a warm, caring, and non-judgmental atmosphere in order to allow the therapeutic agents of change to naturally take place through play.
