I have 18 years of experience providing therapy for all ages from 5 years- old to adults. I have worked providing therapy for children and adults with special needs. I provide an eclectic approach to therapy. I believe in 'starting where the client is." The essential goal of therapy is similar to a Carl Rogers quote stating acceptance of who we are can lead to change. I look forward to traveling the journey of acceptance with you.
