If you are new to ther­a­py wel­come and if you are a vet­er­an wel­come back. Ther­a­py is a great tool for any issue and any per­son but therapists/​treatments are not a one size fits all. It is impor­tant to be some­what com­fort­able with your ther­a­pist and that is my inten­tion upon meet­ing with my clients. Ther­a­py is a per­son­al jour­ney that one allows a pro­fes­sion­al to join them and it is impor­tant to feel a mea­sure of com­fort while you are in treat­ment. Ther­a­py is not about judge­ment but about get­ting the appro­pri­ate tools to be a health­i­er and func­tion­al per­son. Whether you are grad­u­at­ing from col­lege, get­ting mar­ried, hav­ing your youngest child leave the nest or just try­ing to fig­ure your­self out; it is impor­tant to have some­one you can trust to guide you through it. My approach is to be present where ever my client will be emotionally/​mentally and pro­vide sup­port, edu­ca­tion and guidance.

Clinical Interests

I have expe­ri­ence with work­ing with school-aged chil­dren and teens with­in the school set­ting and worked for over 15 years in an alter­na­tive school with stu­dents that have social emo­tion­al issues. I have enjoyed edu­cat­ing par­ents on how to par­ent difficult/​challenging chil­dren and pro­vid­ing guid­ance on how to han­dle new­ly placed stu­dents and fam­i­lies in the spe­cial edu­ca­tion sys­tem. My pas­sion is edu­cat­ing peo­ple about men­tal ill­ness and assist­ing them on their jour­ney of self-dis­cov­ery and heal­ing. I feel it has been my call­ing to pro­vide sup­port, edu­ca­tion and empa­thy to peo­ple whom seek ther­a­peu­tic services.

Personal Interests

I am a mom of 3 daugh­ters ages 21, 13 and 6 and have been mar­ried for almost 15 years. I enjoy spend­ing time with my fam­i­ly both imme­di­ate and extend­ed. I am an avid true crime read­er and fan of the ID chan­nel. Laugh­ter in my life brings me much joy and self-care is impor­tant to me as a pro­fes­sion­al and a per­son. I tru­ly believe that in order to help oth­ers I need to help myself and make myself a pri­or­i­ty so I can con­tin­ue to pro­vide sup­port and empa­thy to all the peo­ple that are in my life.
