I keep the focus of my practice and continuing education with children from preschool through teen years. I employ play & art therapy, a strong family systems orientation, and cognitive behavioral therapy. Many of my clients are children affected by mood, anxiety, and attention disorders.
The two main groups of people who come to me are those affected by divorce, especially children. People also look to me for an openly Christian approach to their mental health needs. I strive to provide sound Biblical support for children and families without requiring a specific set of beliefs.
