“The philosophy that guides my work with clients is a strong core belief in respect for each person’s unique culture and heritage.

When I work with clients it is important for me to understand their worldview. There are no cookie cutter therapeutic interventions that work universally on all clients with the exception of the development of strong therapeutic relationship between client and therapist. I believe therapy needs to be meaningful, personal and tailored for each person. I promote clients having an active role in therapy, to include treatment planning and evaluation.

I have extensive experience in working with young adults, teens, and children dealing with school and relationship issues. I am experienced in working with those dealing with grief and bereavement, anger management, trauma recovery, mood disorders, adjustment to medical conditions, and stress management due to work, school and parenting.

I have been married for 25 years and have two children in college and one in middle school. I am committed to providing the highest quality of care to promote your healing and growth.”
