I am a state certified Recreation Therapist. I have earned a Bachelor of Science in Therapeutic Recreation from California State University, Northridge.

I have 20 years of experience as a Recreation Therapist in professional and residential settings for severely emotionally disturbed children, and currently work in a school-based setting with children with special needs, Autism and ADHD, ages 5-22.

What separates me from other therapists, is that I am dedicated to helping the child gain insight around their personal challenges through social skills strategies, interventions, education, tools, and roleplaying/role modeling for working on difficult situations outside of therapist.
