I am a practical therapist. I believe in tailoring treatment to meet the client's needs, not the treatment theory.
I have been working with adults and children for more than 25 years in a variety of functions in the mental health and child welfare fields. This includes early child education, child welfare, community mental health, and residential treatment for women and adolescent girls. I have also done consulting and educational workshops for parents, early childhood educators, foster and adoptive parents, and staff in these various fields.
My training spans early childhood mental health, trauma, family work, domestic violence, addictions, eating disorders, and a multitude of complex mental health concerns. I have extensive training in CBT, DBT, and ACT treatment modalities as well as Christian Counseling. I began my training as a Lay Christian Counselor in 1996. * * *
This is your life. You are the expert. I am your partner.
