About

I have been a licensed clinician since 1988. I started working with families in 1984. I have worked with clients as young as two years old up to seniors eighty years young. I love working with couples, families, children, and teens; helping families with the challenges of adolescence and parenting. I work with couples recovering from infidelity and those desiring to strenthen their relationships. I work with PTSD, and Dissociative Disorders. I am trained in hypnotherapy, and EMDR. I was fortunate to complete my EMDR training (Levels I and II) with Francine Shapiro, PhD, EMDR's originator, in 1994.
Often, people have not understood the impact significant events--for instance, child abuse, domestic violence, sexual assault, wartime deployments, domestic/international terrorism, working high risk fields (military, first responders)-- have had on them emotionally and psychologically. All of these things resonnate, and impact people long after the incidents over over.
I believe that as each person heals, we all benefit. I believe that every individual has the ability to make a difference. I enjoy watching my clients grow and change, through the process of therapy, reclaiming their lives and the joy of living. This changes them, their relationships, their families.

Smithson Valley Counseling Center Inc.'s Groups

Parent Project Facilitator

Parent Project is a program for parents of high risk teens. It is a 16 week program, during which parents gain the tools they need to get their kids back on track. Gang involvement, drug and alcohol abuse, truancy, academic failure, trouble with the legal system, violent behavior ALL lead in a direction of personal destruction. Parents often feel overwhelmed and powerless. This program helps parents get back in control and gives them specific tools for turning it around.
