Professional Experience: I have been in the field of mental health for over 26 years. I have provided therapeutic services in out patient, in-home, and early childhood day treatment programs. I am trained in DC 0-5, Trauma Informed Child Parent Psychotherapy, play therapy and developmental repair. Currently, I specialize in Reflective Consultation with county employees, school staff, child care providers and other individuals in the mental health industry. I provide clinical consultation and supervision to other mental health professionals working towards their licensure.
Special Interests: I am passionate about all areas of mental health services. However, I have invested most of my time over the past decade in the early childhood mental health field. I believe the earliest support and intervention is the most crucial for long term mental wellness.
A Fun Fact About Me: I enjoy spending time with my family and friends! Socializing brings me joy. I love a good movie with popcorn and M&M’s. I prefer sunshine and warmth and enjoy any time spent on a lake or outside with others during the summer.
