About My Clients

I enjoy helping clients on their journey to better understand themselves. In each session, I will work to ensure you feel heard and understood. We can work together to develop skills to allow you to access a place of calm in times of stress. If interpersonal relationships are causing distress, we can focus on communication skills. I have sixteen years of experience working with adolescents. I also have experience working with victims of sexual assault and domestic violence.

I was a a high school teacher for sixteen years. I am currently an elementary school counselor. I have a great deal of experience working with parents and their children.
