During her post graduate work she had the opportunity to work with a community to help develop a grass roots domestic and sexual violence program. This is when she began to greater understand the effects of childhood trauma. Her wide-ranging clinical experience throughout the years includes working with crisis intervention, domestic violence, sexual trauma, substance abuse and recovery, mental health disorders, self-image, emotional intelligence, corporate psychology, vocational counseling as well as offender rehabilitation and re-entry into society.

Her treatment philosophy aligns nicely with the CALO model. She is appreciative of the opportunity to work with families in this unique setting, who are dedicated and engaged in healing their families. When she is not at work she loves to travel and spending time with her friends and family, which includes five beautiful grandchildren, Lane, Kaitlynn, Connor, Blake and Kraig.
