I love to learn and teach. To me, that is what being a therapist is about.
Providing therapy, clinical supervision, and clinical training in community and specialty community mental health agency settings, schools, and private practice has afforded me the opportunity to work with a wide variety of clients, clinical concerns, and other professionals.
In my private practice, I focus on professional development for therapists and a variety of therapy services for clients.
I look forward to answering any questions you may have about how we might work together to best address your goals for professional consultation, clinical supervision, or therapy.

Life is about relationships…
Make yours GROW!
There is nothing more rewarding to me than those moments when you come to believe that you really do have what it takes to change some aspect of yourself or your relationship, career, or other part of life and that you now know how to get “unstuck” and move forward. In pursuit of these moments, I continue to be amazed by how strong you are, even when you don’t see it – and I rejoice in the times when I can remind you of your strength. It is exciting to be a partner in planting the seeds for healing and positive change, even though I don’t always get to see the bloom as you move forward outside of therapy, building on the strength and skills you brought to treatment and combining those with the skills and knowledge you take from it.
I bring to you the benefit of my education through academic, personal, and professional experience so that I can teach different and better ways of being. But, equally important, I also come to learn of your experiences, feelings, and thoughts so that I can be in partnership with you all along the way.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I specialize in assisting you as you work through relational issues and am also able to assist you with a multitude of other concerns. We will work together to determine your therapy goals and how to best meet those goals so that our time together is both effective and efficient.
