I often tell my clients that therapy, like many other experiences in life "is what you make it." Some choose to make therapy a place to express strong emotions, resolve relational conflict, or discuss past traumas. Others may make therapy a way to practice applying new skills, reflect on weekly stressors, adjust communication habits, or receive educational information about mental health. I am creative in the way that I facilitate therapy and believe that there are multiple ways to achieve a balanced mindset. Regardless of what you choose to make therapy, my role is to provide nonjudgemental guidance.

I have been practicing in Nevada since 1998. I previously worked in clinics and internships in the San Diego area while completing my doctorate training. The child population is significantly under served in Nevada and through my practice I hope to provide guidance, support and hope to families that are struggling and in need. My treatment approach encompasses the family as a whole and assesses the needs of all members, not just the identified patient.
