I work with families, children and adolescents, and premarital couples from all walks of life. One's life journey can be beautiful, stressful, joyous, and heartbreaking. My desire is to walk alongside each person on their unique journey, and my goal is to provide a healing space for each person who walks into my office. I aim to work together with clients to help them find the best possible solution to life's challenges, to facilitate change and transformation, and to foster healing. Although I am trained to work with all individuals, my natural niche stems from my experience working with children, adolescents, and parents.
I know parenting can be one of life’s most amazing and rewarding ventures, but it can also be challenging. Since children do not come with their own personalized how-to manuals, figuring out how to raise your children throughout their many stages of development can be very difficult. This is where I can help. l bring 13 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and their families in foster care, residential treatment centers, in-home settings, school settings and private practice.
During my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and three kids, camping, hiking, swimming, and traveling. I look forward to working with you.
