About My Clients
Sometimes we may get stuck or face challenges that we are not sure how to overcome. Adults, children or their parents may find themselves in the same cycle of behavior and not realize how to get out. This could be the stress of everyday life or it could be major life event that upend our routines and take us out of our comfort areas. Individuals I work with face a wide range of issues which may include Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, ADHD, Impulse Control, and Family Conflict among others.

I am certified in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), completed the Juvenile Sexual Offense Counselor Certification Program (JSOCCP) and have been trained in Alternatives for Families Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (AF-CBT), Skills System and Motivational Interviewing (MI).
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that we all have strengths within that can aid us in working through these challenges that we face. Each person deserves to be treated with dignity and respect and I will not discriminate against anyone on any basis.
