About Me


As a therapist I have worked with issues of grief and loss, trauma, domestic violence, drug and alcohol issues, family reunification, and disrupted attachment relationships between parents and children.  Depression, anxiety, relationship probems, difficulty concentrating, difficulty sleeping, and difficulty performing daily tasks are just some of the issues that I have experience in treating.


I have over 20 years experience working with young children and their families.  I specialize in working with children,including birth to 5 year olds, who have experienced loss, trauma, or are experiencing behavioral difficulties.  I am trained in some of the newest advances used to address problems that interfere with a child's natural ability to progress through developmental stages.  For instance for very young children, focusing on the attachment relationship with parents or primary caregivers can often bring about significant changes for the better and create a strong foundation for them to more easily reach their full potential. 

My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges.  I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth that they are committed to accomplishing.
