As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I believe in the importance of creating and maintaining healthy and fulfilling relationships through my work with children, adolescents, families and couples to achieve the relationships they desire. Most of the time things happen and we manage fine, but sometimes things happen that throw us for a loop and we need some additional support. Using cognitive-behavior therapy (thoughts and behaviors), family systems therapy, and play therapy as appropriate, I help individuals and families identify and use their strengths to facilitate their goals for growth and change.
Being a Certified Trauma Specialist and Certified in Thanatology (grief and loss) allows me to specialize in the linked issues of loss and trauma, both past and present. Additionally, as a Registered Play Therapist, I am equipped to work with young children and resistant adolescents.
I am dedicated to ensuring the highest quality of care by focusing on a client’s strengths and by providing a comfortable atmosphere for discussion about issues. I can help with:
* Marriage & Family Counseling
* Military Deployment Issues
* Child Behavior Problems
* Chronic/Terminal Illness
* Stress Management
* Anger Management
* Post-Traumatic Stress
* Lifestyle Changes
My office is located at Ward’s Corner in Norfolk directly off I-64. I am available at different times throughout the week, including evening appointments. Please call for availability. I look forward to meeting you!
