I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with 14 years of counseling experience and 22 years of experience in the mental health field. I have experience in a variety of settings but the last 10 years have been in a growing private practice working with a team of mental health professionals including medication providers, psychologists and other therapists.
Working with children adolescents and young adults, I strive to empower my clients to create lasting bonds and create solutions to improve everyday living in their homes and school environments. I have worked extensively in the foster care system with biological and foster parents, addressing behavioral issues, family of origin issues and family bonding/attachment. I enjoy both in school and in office sessions and working with the entire family to meet the individual needs.
I have studied child and adolescent therapy as well as integrating play therapy into my practice. I understand that each client processes and copes differently and look to find ways to connect and meet needs on a level appropriate to the individual.
In my office, I utilize a variety of modalities including sand tray therapy and play therapy. I will refer for psychological testing and med management to assist in meeting client's needs.
When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 4 daughters and enjoying this stage of their lives!
