I am trained in play therapy, and treat children as young as age 3.
I feel it is important to offer expert quality care that is compassionate, and tailored to each person's uniqueness as an individual. I have 33 years of clinical experience working with children , teens, families, and adults facing various life challenges. Time passes quickly. We often spend our days unhappy, and stressed. Sometimes it can be difficult to see beyond the hardships, and realize what matters most to us. If you can't change a situation, change your perspective.

I have many years of experience working with children , adolescents, adults with disabilities, and people from a wide variety of backgrounds. As a parent , I am familiar with the challenges of raising a child who has special needs. I believe that all therapy should be trauma informed, as we all do the best we can with what we know and what has worked for us in the past. My primary approaches to therapy are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

I effectively encourage children , adolescents, adults, couples, and families.
Wounds, whether they are physical, emotional, mental or spiritual, inflicted in the early stages of life can live on and be present in the daily moment to moment life experience. Children and adults alike can have difficulty moving on and developing optimally in life after experiencing traumatic events. I would like to help those who have experienced intentional or unintentional pain or abuse heal and recover from those memories.

“You’ve always had the power my dear, you just had to learn to learn it for yourself”– The Wizard of Oz – Frank Baum".

Starting with the belief that the relationship is the basis of therapy, I will work with you, your child , and your family to develop strategies that allow you to overcome or manage your own unique situation.

I have experience working with impoverished/low-income families, military adults/families, children /youth in school settings, and adults and older adults going through difficult times and transitions.
As a Marriage and Family Therapist, my perspective of the human condition and experience is derived from thinking about the context of relationships. Very few, if any, "problems" are a solitary experience; it is often experienced with others in our lives. We are relational beings, and who we are has been influenced by the relationships we have with others. Relationships can hurt, but relationships can also heal. Begin the process of healing and restoring you (and your relationships) today. Not ready for therapy, check the available couples workshops under "Groups".

What type of Kettering mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Kettering?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
