About Me

It is with commitment and pleasure that I serve adults, children, adolescents and their families, using a strength-based, eclectic approach. For 20+ years, my blessings and joy comes from assisting diverse populations to reach their maximum potential applying therapeutic interventions, active listening and empathy. Although sometimes painful or frightening, let us take this journey together in a safe environment. "We can't change what we don't confront”.  I am prepared to hear you with compassion and without judgment.  Please accept this invitation to have a conversation.
