With over 20 years in the psychotherapy field, my passion is to help people expand their lives so that they become all they were created to be. I understand the importance to discover the patterns of behavior they have developed and how those patterns from the past affect the current relationships in their lives. My principle goal is to help you understand how you would like to develop and change and then support and direct you in ways that will help you achieve those changes.
I have extensive experience and training in Neuro & psychological and assessment; evaluating adults and children, as well as advocating for parents and the needs of their children in school.
Experience and focus in children, ADHD, Aspergers, , social skills, & assessment. Approaches used: psychodynamic, cognitive, and attachment theory.
I am a Christian and believe that God challenges us to become all He created us to be. I also respect an individual's right to believe differently than I do.
