Description

My focus is on HOPE. HOPE is the key to recovery from any of life's difficult circumstances. Recovery from trauma and loss is possible. I will walk along side you and your family as you heal and find better ways of relating to one another. I often work with children or families in emotional and behavioral distress. I employ a number of evidence-based and expressive methods (play, art, journal), as the combination provides the most benefit in my 20 plus years experience. Your voice is key in working together towards your goals. I will listen to you. I support children, youth, adults, families.
