Works with Adults and Couples

Healing Work: 

Therapy with Me… Is based on working as a team to help you meet your goals. I like to collaborate with individuals and couples to create a shared plan for therapy that is grounded in what feels most important to the people I see. 

My impacting identifies/roles that inform my work… I feel passionate about working with individuals, families together (as a team) to help you find ways to reach goals.  

I feel informed and knowledgeable about…Diversity and change! 

I work best with clients who… are open to change. If you are asking to work on yourself then I feel you are open to change.  

I am not a good clinical fit for clients who… are not interested in making change. 

What makes me unique… I wouldn’t say unique but I have a lot of life experience, in the continental US and overseas. I was in the Navy In a career I loved but had nothing to do with Social Work (as a job); however, I learned and experienced third world country issues as well as the positives and negatives of military life which impact my work and experiences today. 

Learning and Growing: 

I try to learn something new each day, even if it is something little. I like telling jokes, like seeing someone smile because you recognize them. 

Fun Facts/Resilience Building: 

Family, dogs, cats, aquariums, travel.  I am technologically challenged!! despite my work in the Navy.
