Marriage & Family Therapist, MS, LPC-S, LMFT-S, RPT-S, -
As a mother of grown children and step-children; and someone who has experienced
, re-marriage, and step-families both as a child and an adult, I have a real understanding of many of the issues that bring individuals and families into therapy.
Therapy should not be complicated - it's really about sitting down and talking with another person without feeling judged, talked down to, or being told what to do. My goal is to provide safe, nurturing, and effective psychotherapy to adult, adolescents, children, and families. I use practical and individually tailored approaches. With children and teens my approach is relaxed and non-threatening. I often use play therapy techniques such as: games, art activities, and sand tray. With older teens, adults and families, I strive to create an atmosphere of teamwork that allows clients to educate me about their lives and they changes they want.
