I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in individual therapy working in private practice in Tucson, Arizona. I have over 24 years experience as an individual and marriage therapist. I graduated from Arizona State University specializing in direct practice, I work with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of practice, my passion is helping people move from just surviving to thriving and living a life of healing, peace and hope. I enjoy working with and supporting my clients through lifes challenges and stressors which can include moving in a new direction in their life.
In addition to being an independent practitioner I have traveled to Europe to work with the Military and their families addressing a range of issues including blended family issues, marital issues, job stress, deployment and reintegration challenges.
I have training in several different areas of therapy which include person-centered therapy, brief therapy, solution focused therapy, emotionally focused therapy, emotional freedom techniques, grief and loss, and couples therapy using the Gottman approach. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address their goals and personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they desire. I am a true optimist and believe that with hard work, support and commitment, I can help clients achieve their goals.
