About me
Welcome! I'm deeply passionate about fostering growth and resilience within individuals and families. With years of dedicated experience as a therapist and clinical supervisor, my journey has been rich with opportunities to support children, adolescents, and adults through comprehensive counseling services. My expertise lies in conducting thorough assessments that pave the way for personalized therapy, whether it's one-on-one, with families, or in group settings.

Crisis counseling is an area where I've made a significant impact, offering immediate support when it's most needed. I take pride in my collaborative approach, working closely with various community agencies to address the multifaceted needs of youth and their families.

As a former Clinical Director, I've led teams with a focus on clear communication and efficient service referral processes. My background also includes conducting detailed audits and ensuring compliance with health standards—tasks that underscore my commitment to excellence in care.

I believe in continuous improvement and have overseen training programs to enhance the skills of healthcare providers. My role often extends into strategic planning, where I review and approve marketing plans to ensure they align with our mission of providing exceptional care.

In every aspect of my work, from administration to direct patient care, I strive to create an environment of trust and healing. Let's navigate your path to wellness together.

Treatment philosophy & approaches
I believe it is highly important to meet clients where they are - this looks so different with everyone. Through a comprehensive assessment, I will work with the client and/or family to identify what treatment goals are needed. Once we determine what is needed, then we will make goals together that are realistic for client to meet and report a less symptoms.
