My Approach

I am an infant-family and early childhood mental health specialist and supervisor with 10 years of experience working exclusively with young children ages 0-6, including children who have experienced traumatic or stressful life events. I use evidence-based interventions (tried and true methods that really work!) to decrease family stress, improve child behavior and strengthen relationships. Whether your child has undergone a trauma or stressful life event, or is simply experiencing a difficult phase of development – we will face this together. You are not alone. My approach is warm and genuine. I have effective tools that have helped many families feel calmer, more confident, and more deeply connected. I am certified in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) and Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and also trained in Eye-movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

My Background

Originally from Arkansas, I have traveled across the U.S. learning about, practicing and teaching interventions in early childhood mental health and childhood trauma. I received my MSW degree from UC Berkeley and completed an early childhood mental health internship at Children’s Hospital Oakland in 2009. Endorsed as an Infant-Family and Early Childhood Mental Health Specialist, I have provided training and consultation to psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, teachers, child welfare staff and home visitation programs. I recently contributed to Arkansas’ Strategic Plan for Early Childhood Mental Health, led a state project to improve health outcomes for children ages 0-8, and received the Direct Service Provider Award from the Arkansas Association for Infant Mental Health. I strongly believe that all families deserve happy, healthy, secure relationships - and I enjoy nothing more than supporting families to achieve this goal.
