Hello!

Are you concerned about your child's behavior at home or school?

Does parenting your child(ren) have you questioning your abilities as a parent?

Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed about caring for yourself, your child(ren), or your family?

Are you looking for ways to connect to your infant, child, or teen?

Are you a foster or adoptive parent looking for support?

Are you parenting a child, teen or young adult with special needs?

I can help!

I consider it a privilege to come alongside parents and caregivers who need support during their parenting journey. I offer families affordable child-centered, family-focused therapeutic services to facilitate attachment, healing and wellness. I also enjoy working with women across the lifespan, including young adults, parents, empty nesters, and seniors.
I have over 25 years of experience working with children, pre-teens, young adults, seniors, and their families in my career as an administrator, caseworker, trainer, and therapist. My professional experience includes adoption and foster care, residential treatment, home health, vocational rehabilitation, and senior services.

Thank you for visiting my website.  Please contact me at (214) 616-3700 if you have additional questions or would like to schedule an appointment.
