Education & Experiences



I have worked as a therapist in just about every type of setting from in-patient, substance abuse, military/deployments, reintegration both military and incarcerations, state/social services and now private practice. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches to design a unique treatment plan for each individual client.

Aside from my education, I rely on my experience, intuition, and background to understand what is going on and together we figure out how to address the problem.
