I am an experience Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is also an RN and Ordained Presbyterian Minister. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, working with clients ages 10 and up. I deal with many different diagnoses, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar I and II and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

I am an LCSW who specializes in trauma, working with men, women and children. I see clients in whatever ways suits them and their lifestyle the best, in person, phone or video. I am a compassionate, well trained therapist who enjoys working with my clients and seeing them improve. I work with children and teenagers as well as adults. I particularly enjoy working with teenagers.
In my personal life, I am married and have two adult children. I am a musician – I sing, play the piano and Native American flute.
My goal as a therapist is to help you be the best you that you can. I work with you to help you cope with your mental health issues in healthier ways than you may be been in the past. I use a variety of therapies, depending on what the client is needing.
