assessment, mediation, individual, and family counseling in private practice. I also worked
extensively  with individuals in high stress employment positions, specializing in working
with law enforcement officers, dispatchers, military personnel, firefighters and

In my clinical work, I focus on utilizing a client-centered approach to help each patient form

I also have extensive experience in the treatment of substance abuse disorders, due to my
previous experience in managing an opiate treatment center for 5 years. In addition to my

for adults and children in a variety of clinical settings. I am well versed in providing
one on one individual counseling and group counseling.

On a personal note, I have relocated to South Carolina from California with my husband,
children, and two dogs. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends,
attending my children’s sporting events and leading an active family lifestyle.
