Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a licensed Marriage, Family therapist with a doctorate in psychology. I have been in private practice for over 18 years.

I enjoy working with both adults and children. I have training and expertise in several types of therapies including: EMDR, brief counseling, play therapy and family therapy. I work with families, individuals (adult and children). My style is eclectic (I use several methods of therapy depending on the needs of the client). I have been an expert witness in several child abuse court cases and feel confident in my abilities as a therapist and as an expert witness.

I currently facilitate a 52 week court ordered group for those convicted of domestic violence crimes. I have done this for the last 10 years. I have worked with both offenders of domestic violence and sexual offenses as well as the survivors of these crimes.
