She has been fortunate to work in both outpatient clinics and private practice settings applying the knowledge and foundation from her training to help individuals, couples and families facing a variety of issues that impact their health and daily life.  

Having particular experience working with marital difficulties, blended family/communication/divorce issues, and conflict resolution, she focuses her treatment on working collaboratively with clients in a safe, trusting environment to help identify goals and a deeper awareness of themselves. She works together with clients finding ways to overcome obstacles and challenges by building on strengths and opportunities to make positive changes in their lives.
