I have been counseling families and individuals of all ages  for over 20 years.

I also worked for 7.5 years as a crisis worker and crisis team supervisor at Sacred Heart Medical Center Emergency Department.

I specialize in mood disorders and PTSD primarily utilizing a person-centered, cognitive behavioral and brief solution-focused therapy approach. I believe in interacting with each unique individual I meet with an open mind, respect and compassion.
