Licensed Clinical Social Worker
IAre you feeling unsure where to turn?
Well, you are already headed in the right direction. The fact that you are checking out resources to assist you (and/or your family) to get advice and direction is a healthy and hopeful sign. I am a strong believer in HOPE; professionally and personally. Personally, using hope helps me to raise a chronically/severely handicapped son. I also have another son and a daughter. Professionally, working in this field for over 30 years, I have seen how vital it is to use hope. Hope can help you discover and/or re-discover your strengths and use them towards obtaining your goals.

In addition to my education and clinical experiences, I believe that being a college instructor since 1994, has expanded my ability to help work with my clients. I have taught; Psychology, Sociology, Substance Abuse, Counseling Techniques and Marriage and Family. I include what I taught into what I can teach my clients. I believe that therapy includes "teaching" clients new skills and how to use their strengths to reach THEIR goals. MY goal is for my clients to no longer need my help but know they can still reach out to me, if needed.
