I value being up to date with effective, research based family and marriage therapies. Here are some modalities in which I have training and utilize as therapeutic interventions.
I have over 20 years of experience working with families. I have years of experience in education working with children and their families in a school setting as teacher, intervention specialist, and school counselor. For 10+ years I have spent providing professional counseling to couples and families with a variety of backgrounds and issues. I specialize in helping others build healthy relationships that enhance family cohesiveness and improve lives.
I have extensive professional training and experience, however, I believe my personal life has been my most valued instructor.
I grew up in a large family, providing me with a wide variety of relationship triumphs and challenges. I have been married for 30 years and have four children. Many of the tools I have learned along the way, I have utilized with my own family, friends, and marriage.
Helping families and finding the most effective ways to do so, is my favorite hobby. I also enjoy writing, puzzles, reading, riding my bike, and travel.
In my work, it is important to tailor treatment to you and your family's specific desires and needs.
I am always open to your questions and concerns and would love the opportunity to help you live your best life.
