I acquired my Ph.D. at the University of Kansas, focusing on general Clinical Psychology with a sub specialty in child and family psychology. A Kansas native, I have served the children and families of Kansas in an agency setting [the Wichita Guidance Center , 1979-1985] and in my own private practice since 1985. Although I have a great deal of training in working with children, especially children under six, I like workiing with people of all ages. I particularly like working with those who are recovering from trauma. My home office is a relaxed, private, and comfortable environment where you can feel supported as you work on new skills and life patterns that can take you to a brighter tomorrow.
