I specialize in early childhood development and emotional difficulties in childhood. I work with children and parents both in the hopes of preventing problems and in addressing developing ones. I use a family systems approach with cognitive behavioral, mindfulness and neuropsychology interventions in my treatments. I also work with young adults and adults with a focus on anxiety, mood disorders and life transitions.

I provide services with Riverwalk Associates, a small group of independent practitioners. We are located next to a small wooded area in the Foundation Center (53700 Generations Drive, Suite 200, South Bend, IN 46635), which provides us with confidential offices and natural scenery.
