Hi! I am a licensed marriage and family therapist with over 20 years of clinical experience. I provide a supportive and collaborative approach to therapy. I believe it is important to teach clients strategies to use throughout their life, so that when they leave therapy, clients feel more confident to cope with future difficulties in a positive way. Learning skills along with self exploration can lead to progress in a shorter amount of time. Clients of all ages can benefit from this approach.
My specialties include anxiety and mood disorders, child/adolescent issues, parenting issues, trauma focused work including sexual abuse, grief and loss, and stress reduction. I primarily utilize a cognitive-behavioral approach, teaching healthier ways of coping, anxiety reduction skills, and positive thinking to improve mood and behavior.
My background includes intensive training in child and adolescent therapy. I am trained in a variety of skills based/evidence based therapies such as Trauma Focused CBT (TFCBT), Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), Managing and Adapting Practices (MAP) and Seeking Safety. I provide individual therapy, play therapy, family therapy, and parenting. I also work directly with the Victims of Crime Program, and help victims prepare for trial.
