Community-Based Therapy Services
I look forward to supporting ACP families within the community whose children are experiencing trauma, anxiety, or developmental challenges. I partner with caregivers and children from a place of support to decrease distress and increase coping skills within the home and the community environments to enhance healthy and safe relationships.
I have previous experience serving in child welfare, childhood trauma education, supporting therapeutic parenting strategies, and care coordination for children with overlapping cognitive impairments and mental health/behavioral concerns.
I am an adoptive parent of five boys, two of which have significant cognitive disabilities. I am a distance runner, hobby gardener, dedicated reader, and “auntie” to many children I have cared for in the past within my home.
To expand and improve our care options for clients, ACP offers Telehealth (phone or video) appointments. Telehealth uses phone or video conferencing to connect you with highly qualified and experienced providers in real-time from the comfort and convenience of your own home or office. Before your telehealth appointment, you will receive details for how you will connect with your provider. If you will be connecting via phone, the provider will plan to call you at your scheduled appointment time. Please be ready to take the call and also check that your phone allows calls from blocked numbers (accessible within your phone settings). If you will be connecting via video conference, your provider will email you an invite to join the appointment. Please call our office to learn more about ACP’s telehealth services and to schedule an appointment.
