For the past 8 years I have been working at a continuation high school with high risk teenagers and their families. I am currently a volunteer at the high school. I have worked with a variety of issues including but not limited to drugs and alcohol use, gang involvement, child abuse, rape, cutting, eating issues, depression, suicidal ideation,teen pregancy, as well as the more common issues surrounding being a teenager in this day and age.
I have most recently been a guest for local cable shows discussing the issue of bullying for the bullied, the bully, and the parents of either. I half also spoken to classrooms on the subject of bullying and how kids can attempt to deal with the issue.
In addition, I am growing the part of my practice surrounding moms and how they deal with being a parent and the ups and downs of parenting itself. Having recently become a parent I have experience both personally and professionally of the isolation and depression that sometimes accompanies being a mom.
It is my hope that my clients feel they are treated in a compassionate and respectful way as I help guide them through there process of choices and life paths.
