I have been providing therapy services to persons in the Jackson area for 27 years. My experience includes serving as a clinical director in an outpatient clinic as well as providing education and supervision to U of M graduate students.

I am committed to continuing education which enables me to provide treatment that is focused and in line with best practices and standards. My nursing background enables me to communicate comfortably with medical providers to coordinate care, even in complex medical cases.
