My approach to working with people has evolved over the past 18 years, but my core belief, understanding the whole person, remains unchanged. People are affected by their physical and emotional health, social environment, relationships, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual
orientation, and day to day living. Individuals are diverse, face many challenges, and have many strengths. Therapy helps people capitalize on their strengths to overcome life's challenges.
I provide play and talk therapy working with children, adolescents, adults, families and couples.
I specialize in childhood disorders, trauma, visual impairments, chronic pain, low self-esteem,
and LGBTQ issues. Fifteen years in community mental health provides me with the experience
to work with all ages, diagnoses and issues.
I have post-graduate training working with children, adolescents and parents, and am trained in
EMDR. I have provided workshops on diabetes, trauma, and most recently on working with c
hildren, adolescents, and parents managing LGBTQ issues.
