I am currently in the California State licensure process to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW).  I have completed my required clinical hours and Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) and now need to complete the state licensing examinations.

My experience in the mental health field includes over 9 years as a Registered Associate Clinical Social Worker (ASW#92191) and more than 14 years as a Certified Alcohol Drug counselor (CADC-II). Over these years I have worked in a children’s out patient facility, an HIV/AIDS clinic and in a number of Native American health clinics, as a Native American clinician. 

I work with trauma (such as sexual abuse and other issues specific to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), victims of domestic abuse and/or violence, mood disorders, depression, alcohol and drug issues and those with dual diagnoses. I see clients of all ages and especially enjoy working with children and adolescents.

​Along with doing effective in-office therapy since 2001, I have also seen tremendous individual progress using Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP). EAP is an experiential therapy that can aid people in working through personal issues, feelings and behaviors in a concrete manner by interacting with horses in a variety of activities. I currently am honored to work with Kim Jones, MFT, and my beautiful four legged partners (my 7 horses).

​I am also a certified Clinical Herbalist and practice bio-regional herbalism, using as many local native herbs as I can. I have found combining natural healing and Western medical/mental healing practices has been very effective with many clients.

I believe each of us deserve to lead a happy and healthy life. But life is full of good and bad experiences, unexpected changes and difficult challenges.  These can be traumatic, overwhelming and seem unresolvable. At those times each of us needs help.

As a therapist, I help you use your ability to see and understand the challenges facing you and find the inner strength to successfully meet them. Providing you with respectful, non-judgmental feed-back is basic to my assistance in your empowerment. My goal is for you to learn your own strengths, make your own choices and have a healthier, happier and more fulfilling life.
