As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Doctor of Education, I offer a unique blend of experience, expertise, and resources to adults, parents, and professionals.

I am trained in Brain-based therapies, Jungian Psychology, EMDR Therapy, and Mind-Body-Spirit therapies.  I incorporate  CBT, Solution-Focused, Attachment and Developmental therapies, as appropriate to each client.

I have pursued specialized training in the unique social-emotional challenges and risks, needs, and diagnostic challenges faced by gifted and talented individuals.

I pursue quality professional training and review research in my fields regularly.  I set high standards for my work with you.
