Parents and teachers who know me say I am uniquely gifted at communicating with young clients, resulting in a faster resolution of issues. For over 20 years, I have helped children, youths, and families in both the public school and private sector.
My specialties include goal-oriented play therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapies. I am also a therapist and certified instructor in Choice/Reality Therapy.
Because I worked extensively in the public school system, I know how to collaborate with educators, groups, and parents to address a wide spectrum of student problems and needs. I develop solutions that are workable.
