As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I see children within the context of their experiences and relationships. Traumatic or difficult experiences most often happen within the context of close relationships, therefore, I encourage repair/healing within the context of relationships for both children and their loved ones. In conversation with children and their caregivers/parents we collaboratively develop treatment plans that fit the needs and goals of the family system. I utilize evidenced base practices, such as Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and EMDR in conjunction with attachment-focused therapies forwarded by Daniel Hughes, Heather Forbes, and Michael Orleans/Terry Levy.

My experiences providing services to families in their homes and when children are in placement supports the use of these approaches for both children and adults. I seek to understand and support the entire family system.
