I received a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies from Arizona State University in 2004 and a Master’s Degree in Social Work from ASU in 2008.  I have a clinical license (LCSW) through the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners and I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers.  

I have worked in the behavioral health field since 1996.  My areas of specialization include managing anger, stress and anxiety; trauma, relationship/interpersonal dynamics, conflict resolution and male developmental issues.  I have previously worked in the field of victim advocacy and also have an extensive background in Law Enforcement.  

I believe “self-care” is a foundational piece to any therapy intervention.  I use a cognitive approach as a baseline, but can also develop a plan that suits your emotional, intellectual and spiritual focus to get you to the goals you have for counseling.  

I believe that a strong interaction with supportive communication is effective in helping you process the difficulty you are experiencing.  

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your healing.
