It's All About the Relationship

About Me

My training occurred in hospitals, schools, child guidance centers, community-based settings, and private practice. I have extensive experiences with depression, trauma, adoption issues, anxiety, grief, bullying, school problems, peer and family relationship struggles in adolescence, divorce adjustment, blended families, and family conflict. I provide supervision and training to graduate-level psychology students through their work with children, adolescents, adults and families.
