I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a Masters of Counseling in the state of Nevada. I graduated with a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from University of Nevada Las Vegas. I have been practicing for many years and specialize in couple therapy, trauma, adolescents, and children.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I work with individuals, couples, families and groups. The scope of practice for an MFT is to work with clients so that "interpersonal relationships are examined for the purpose of achieving more adequate, satisfying, and productive marriage and family adjustments". What does this really mean? It means that my intention is to help my clients improve their relationships with their partners, children, friends, acquaintances and themselves. Having fulfilling relationships is an important piece of having a happier and healthier life.
While at University of Nevada Las Vegas, I studied under Gerald Weeks, one of the leading therapists in the field of sex therapy. I also worked at the Family Project serving teenagers and families who were on probation for criminal acts. In addition, I worked in an outpatient practice, serving sexually abused children, adolescents, and adults. I also worked at an outpatient agency serving, individuals, couples and families. Previously I served as a sex educator and sexually transmitted disease prevention specialist in 2001. I have also counseled at Green Valley Christian church, and in 2006 led groups on Boundaries, Boundaries in Dating, Boundaries in Marriage, and Young Girls Adjustment. I also serve as an outpatient counselor for Central Christian church and was the key-speaker at Green Valley Christian church.
Currently I have a private practice as a licensed marriage and family therapist offering afternoon, evening and weekend appointments. I am committed to providing my clients with the highest quality of care and individualized services. My exclusive practice provides an environment of confidentiality and privacy for each client.
