I have conducted Adoption studies, Trainer for Foster Parenting program, Individual/Family/Group Counselor, Drug and Alcohol Counselor, and EAP (Employee Assistance Program). I have worked with all ages from as young as 5, to 80 years of age.
I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) & Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to address the needs of my clients. I am also trained in TF-CBT (Trauma Focused) and Cognitive Processing Therapy. I have primarily treated clients with Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, & ADD/ADHD, . I believe that people have the ability to heal themselves but need assistance uncovering the issues that create barriers in their lives. I am here to help you achieve this goal.
