I value being up to date with effective, research based family and marriage therapies. Here are some of the modalities I have training in and also utilize as therapeutic interventions.
I have over 20 years of experience working with families. My background is in education working with children and their families in a school setting as teacher, intervention specialist, or counselor. The last 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 gained tremendous value through professional training and experience. However, I believe my personal life is where those skills have solidified.
I grew up in a large family which provided me with a wide variety of relationship triumphs and challenges. I have been married for more than 25 years and have four children.
If you ask my family about my favorite hobby, they would say that helping people, and finding the most effective ways to do so, ranks high. I also enjoy reading, riding my bike, travel, and writing.
I utilize many of the interventions in my personal life that I share with my clients. 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.
