It takes great courage to seek out a professional therapist or counselor for assistance and I make it a priority that you will be treated with utmost respect …after 12 years of combined clinical experience and taking my cues from clients, I have learned to trust in their judgement and adapt my style to their needs. I have established the philosophy that my commitment to the therapeutic work overrides any devotion to a single theory and I rely on pragmatic approaches that best fit the needs of the client based on previous experience and valid research. I offer creative paths, healing insights and practical problem solving skills for every day use for children, adolescents and families struggling with a variety of issues.
