My ideal client is someone who is motivated to make changes in their life. I would like for them to be willing to work with me to improve their life. I enjoy working with individuals of all ages including, children, adolescents, and adults. I treat others with dignity and respect at all times. I work diligently to ensure that you and your family feel comfortable by establishing a therapeutic rapport early during your time in therapy.

I am a Nationally Certified Trauma Specialist, with several years of experience working with individuals that have experienced complex trauma. I specialize in working with trauma victims. I enjoy working in conjunction with the client's network of support to ensure success.

I enjoy working with individuals that may need a family-focused therapeutic approach. I know every individual is unique, and so are their needs, this may mean integration of family support and/or network of support to ensure therapeutic success.
