I am a Marriage and Family Therapist with over 18 years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families. I love to help individuals through life transitions and increase their understanding of how they can be empowered through personal positive changes.
Throughout my career, I have worked with K-12th grade students in school-based counseling programs; motivating students to problem solve and increase self-awareness and self-esteem. For 5 years, I was on staff at College Hospital’s Outpatient Psychiatric Program managing treatment of individuals with Schizophrenia, Mood Disorders, Depression/Anxiety/Panic Attacks and Personality Disorders; along with individuals experiencing stressful events in their life.
I currently serve as a private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients. My areas of expertise include; Depression, Anxiety, ADHD and Parenting Issues.
I work as an Interactive, Solution-Focused Therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client.
With compassion and understanding, I work with each client to help build on their strengths and personal growth that can be accomplished through personal commitment!
