I work from a Family Systems Model which recognizes that each family and individual is unique and that change comes from addressing the dynamics and interactions among members of a system. When working with families I meet with different subsystems of the family to help strengthen relationships which benefit the whole family. I enjoy working with clients and helping them to identify the challenges they are experiencing and to set goals and move toward creating changes in their lives. Throughout my work with clients I provide tools, support and encouragement as well as additional community resources to help sustain their growth.
I hold a Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Maryland - College Park and a Bachelors Degree in Education and Behavioral Disabilities from the University of Wisconsin - Madison.
I have been working with families and children for over 30 years providing individual, marital, family and group therapy. I enjoy blending my clinical skills with my experience as an educator. I have worked with adolescents in a variety of academic and clinical outpatient settings.
In addition to counseling and consulting, I partner with community organizations and agencies to provide training, consultation and clinical supervision.
