As the Practice Manager, I run the day to day operations of our office and navigate the billing and medical insurance maze. With over 14 years’ experience running and maintaining offices in various industries, I am well versed in handling the expected and unexpected. I enjoy working with people and enjoy the connections and interpersonal communication with everyone I come in contact with. I strive to be informative, patient and diligent in helping our clientele in all capacities.
It is said that health and wellness are a direct result of the places in which we live, learn, work and play. I believe in the work each of our clinicians perform. It is wonderful to watch these therapeutic relationships flourish and grow everyday and to be a part of such a healthy and safe environment.

I obtained my Associate’s Degree at College of the Siskiyous and went on to attend Southern Oregon University.

I have special interest in assisting children, adolescents and families with collaboratively reaching their goals while decreasing family stress, improving communication skills, and regaining mutual enjoyment among family members…..Continue Reading
