About Me

I have over 30 years experience, am bilingual (Spanish) and specialize working with children and their families, although I see people of all ages. Recently my focus has been serving the immigrant population. I enjoy teaching and have taught classes in a nearby community college and have given continuing education presentations over the years for a variety of organizations. I make an effort to work out regularly and garden in the warmer weather.
