For many people, walking through a therapist's door for the first time can be doesn't have to be. My practice offers professional and confidential services in a safe, comfortable and home-like environment.

The office is very "child friendly" and children can't wait to go back to the Play Therapy Room. I utilize Atticus and Boo (dogs) especially when working with children. Measures are taken to separate the animals if anyone is allergic or have other concerns.

Home Studies/ Adoptive Studies/ Step-Parent Adoptions are also offered.
