**AVAILABILITY UPDATE 5-4-23 I am currently full for both counseling and psychological evaluations.  

I look forward to helping guide and empower clients to make healthy changes in their lives. I have more than 20 years of experience providing compassionate client-centered counseling & psychological testing.

My therapeutic treatment approaches include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Based Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Positive Psychology, Play Therapy, Compassion-focused Therapy, Attachment-Focused Therapy, and Animal/Pet-Assisted Therapy. I specialize in working with children, teens, and adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders.

Psychological evaluations can be provided to determine DSM 5 diagnoses, make referrals to specialists such as ABA providers, and recommend specific interventions for treatment, including adjustments to Individual Educational Plans (IEPs) and 504 accommodations for students with special needs.
