Experience, Education, Training.


Experience, education and training are the pillars of my work. Over the past 10 years I have had the privilege to help people of all ages identify the challenging points in their day-to-day life, explore new strategies and implement long lasting change. I’ve worked in a variety of clinical settings and with people from all different walks of life. And, I even got my feet wet in the high-tech corporate world before pursuing my Masters and finding my true calling as a therapist. It’s important to me to continually advance my knowledge and skills. I attend continuing education conferences and seminars each year so I can continue to help people in the most effective way possible.
