I enjoy working with children, youth, adults and families to foster personal growth, find healing and strengthen families.  In counseling, we will work together to achieve the goals that are important to you.  Finding emotional, spiritual and relational healing can open the door to a more fulfilling life, and together we’ll find ways to remove those mental and emotional obstacles that may be keeping you or your family from experiencing the joy and hope you long for.

As we work together, we will develop a plan that addresses your concerns and goals, and check in along the way to make sure we are making good progress. I have worked with individuals and families dealing with issues related to adoption, attachment, grief and loss, anxiety, Autism, ADHD, sensory integration, depression, educational concerns, and difficult behavior related to school or family settings.

You and your family’s health are important to me, and I consider families to be an important part of the healing process. While families and relationships are often complicated, parents, spouses, and children are influential in finding lasting health and happiness. As a foster and adoptive parent, I have an understanding of what it means to walk through healing with children and the impact that can have on families.  I have experience working with students and their families to find success in schools, and I also work with doctors and community service providers as appropriate to support your growth.
