I have been in the field professionally since 2001, working with adults and adolescents with various mental health issues, criminal backgrounds, addictions, and life challenges. I have experience working in standard residential and high-security residential settings, outpatient and hospital care environments. I have experience in program design, development, curriculum fidelity, and quality assurance monitoring.
I provide individual and group services for adult and adolescents.
My primary theoretical orientation is mindfulness-based therapy. I believe we are all intrinsically healthy though we get stuck in habitual routines and practices that impair progress in our lives or create suffering. I have extensive training in mindfulness-based therapy, CBT, DBT, trauma-informed care, motivational interviewing, crisis counseling and Gestalt therapy. I have some experience and practice with body-psychodynamics, psychodrama, family sculpting and hakomi therapy.
I have been practicing and teaching taekwon-do for nearly 30 years. I am also an avid board, role-playing, and video gamer. I enjoy reading, writing, and have a passion for the theater and music.
