Life can be difficult. Far too many people suffer traumatic events or experience loss that leaves them in great emotional pain. Perhaps they're struggling with a mental illness that steals away their purpose and resilience for life. This is why I strive to offer a safe, compassionate, and professional space for people who are hurting. I am devoted to making our time together important and impactful.
After spending 8 years as a public school teacher and psychometrist, I transitioned to the field of behavioral health. I've been practicing as a psychotherapist since 1993. My continued training is focused on evidence-based, trauma-informed material designed to maximize the opportunity for clients to experience desired change.
