Clinic-Based Therapy Services

I have 30 years of experience in multiple settings providing Mental Health Services. My theoretical background is based in Family Systems Theory and Child Development Theory. I work to provide a safe atmosphere for self-discovery, reflection, challenge, and recovery, with respect to all spiritual practices and genders.
