Pronouns (She/Her/Hers)TLMFT, I have spent more than a decade refining the necessary skills to facilitate relational connectedness. I acknowledge and support the lived experience of everyone. I am committed to navigating many familial issues such as bonding/attachment, conduct disorder, school adjustment difficulties, single -parenting, relationship conflict, societal bias, and loss of affirmations. As a collaborative family therapist, I assist individuals and families in relieving anxiety, stress, and in making the necessary changes to enrich their lives. I find it an honor to walk with families endeavoring to make a change. I provide trauma-informed therapeutic interventions with children, families, and individuals.
I have a Master of Science degree in Family Therapy. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist by temporary license. My educational background also includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration. I have many years of experience working with high conflict families providing parenting coordination services implementing and monitoring safe, workable parenting plans, and reducing conflict in families. I have also taught in elementary schools and worked with children and adults with physical and cognitive challenges. I have experience developing support groups for multiracial families and those with experiencing transracial adoptions. I am trained in EMDR.
I affirm the lived experience of minority populations and believe in examining experiences within pervasive systemic racism. I work to provide a safe space to engage in meaningful, productive dialogue about diversity and inclusion. Change is possible.
