I am thankful for the nearly 20 years I have collaborated with children, adults, and parents to achieve their personal behavioral and emotional goals. I have worked in juvenile institutions as well as psychiatric and educational settings where I addressed severe emotional and behavior difficulties.

I am especially passionate about the complex adversities that families affected by Asperger’s encounter. Individual therapy is a great starting place, although the group setting can be particularly powerful for siblings and spouses.

I am also employed as a positive behavior intervention specialist where my main objective is to create and maintain a systematic approach to address behavior in large diverse populations as well as facilitating small groups and developing individual behavior plans.

Its difficult to find the best fit for your family’s unique needs. I would love to collaborate with you and/or your family in reaching your goals!
