She has worked for the Davis Head Start Program as a Family Service Worker since 1995. In that capacity, she works with parents and teachers to create behavior plans for children ages one through five while they attend school and visits homes to work on various mental health issues within families.

I strongly believe that people have within them the strength to overcome difficult things in their lives. I specialize in helping children and adults gain control of their lives that they may feel they lost due to anxiety, depression, addiction, anger issues, grief, etc. Through cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), we can explore strengths and use them to find the passion in life and overcome difficulties.
I am committed to helping children, adults and families live the best life that they can and am honored to help through the journey.
