PROFESSIONAL BIOGRAPHY

     
  For the past 25+ years I have been working in the mental health field. I have a doctorate in Psychology and am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have experience working within agency settings, in a non-public school, within the military and in a private practice. My practice serves elementary-aged children through the senior years. I have focused my practice to serve those impacted by life events, often experienced in traumatic ways. This could be from bullying; a mental health issue such as Bipolar, Depression or Anxiety; post-traumatic stress from direct exposure to a life-threatening event; or loving someone who has been through this. Very often those with mental health issues are blind to their own issues and the impact to their loved ones. Just as often, the person suffering a mental health issue may be aware but unable to use the resources available in a consistent way. This leaves loved ones often feeling helpless, hopeless, isolated and alone. NAMI arose to address these needs through education and support.
