About Me

Has life become overwhelming to you? Do you question yourself or your ability to be a loving spouse, friend, or parent? Is your own traumatic childhood getting in the way of your dreams? Does your child have a trauma history or challenging behaviors? Do you feel secretly depressed and/or fearful that no one will understand or even really care? I have worked with children and families for nearly 35 years as parent, foster parent, teacher and therapist. I have gained experience and expertise in understanding life challenges and have experience in treating trauma, abuse, neglect, isolation, and anxiety, I desire that you have a safe place to move towards social and emotional health and wellness. For children, I combine therapies that focus on helping them manage their emotions, while identifying what are the causes and by helping them to understand their thoughts, feelings, impulses, and needs. (i.e.: EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) Therapy, Trust-Based Relational Intervention®, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapies and Play). I work with each child to discover their strengths and grow in self-control and responsibility. For adults, I combine therapies that focus on you getting better from the inside out. Helping you manage your emotions, while identifying what is causing you to not feel good about yourself. I believe in having healthy and strong relationships and sometimes one needs to take time to heal from their own experiences in order to do this. Identifying those negative beliefs about yourself, while focusing on your strengths, EMDR will be used to help you be your best you. I am available, for either adult therapy or parenting support, to help you be the strong and capable person you are meant to be.
