My Approach

I want to put myself out of a job.  I wish I had a magic wand and could make all the pain and hurt, trauma and stress, behavior problems and worries, hard days and long nights disappear.  I do not believe that my job is to have all the answers for you.  I see my role as being a helper and a listener to support you in finding your answers and teaching new skills to help make the process a little easier.  I know we all have hectic lives so the strategies, interventions, and resources we discuss need to be useful and also manageable for you to use in your every day life.  I want you to know that you are not alone, that you are not the only one going through what you are dealing with, and that things do and will get better.  I believe that by working together we can make the hard times at least fade into the background so you and your family can move forward to a healthier place.


I believe in using a combination of evidenced based interventions along with anecdotal experiences to help children and families reach their highest potential.  I have a love of learning and enjoy developing and sharpening skills through ongoing training and consultation opportunities.  I believe it is important to also learn from the clients and families I work with and I feel privileged to be part of your journey.
