Bio
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with extensive experience working with children, adolescents, individuals, families and couples. My expertise lies in the treatment of abuse, adjustment disorders, child behavior problems, depression, family crisis, grief and loss, life transitions, substance abuse and trauma. My goals are to help clients achieve their highest potential, develop healthy coping skills, and live the life that they aspire to.

I have experience with a wide spectrum of populations and issues in the social services field. I have worked with foster care children and their families, adolescents mandated to juvenile detention centers, families and couples.

As a practicing professional, I continue to look to many resources to keep developing my skills and perfect my practice within a broad spectrum of areas. I believe that developing a trusting therapeutic relationship is essential to the success of therapy. I offer individual, couples, family and group psychotherapy in a safe environment to help clients improve the quality of their lives and level of functioning.
