About me

My clinical expertise is in experiential therapy, working with military families, PTSD and trauma focused therapy, parenting issues, child and adolescent healthy development, couples therapy, adolescent substance abuse, working with human trafficking victims, and well-being throughout the life cycle.

I continue to maintain a small private practice of children, youth, families, couples, and clinical supervision.

I find experiential therapy a particularly effective modality. Experiential Therapy is Licensed Clinical Therapy in the Beautiful Outdoors.

I am a licensed clinical social worker with my master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Michigan. My doctorate is from Michigan State University in Developmental Psychology/Family and Child Ecology.

I have been a practicing clinical social worker for over 30 years. My clinical expertise is in experiential therapy, working with military families, PTSD and trauma focused therapy, parenting issues, child and adolescent healthy development, couples therapy, adolescent substance abuse, working with human trafficking victims/survivors, well-being and resilience throughout the life cycle, and school social work.

I have worked as a clinician in the U.S., Mexico, Peru, Italy, and Bolivia. I speak fluent Spanish and French, and conversational Italian.

I have written 5 books:
