Specializing in Juveniles who Sexually Act Out
When your family finds themselves struggling to navigate sexually concerning behaviors, it seems like your whole world has been struck with fear, anxiety, shame, and embarrassment. You begin questioning what is normal sexual behavior and what is considered concerning? Maybe your adolescent has been arrested for sexually acting out and your fear of juvenile justice, court dates and probation has become a reality or maybe you want to be proactive and seek treatment before the court gets involved.
I pride myself in walking with families going through this scary time. I am a state approved Juvenile Sexual Offender Specialist and I know how the system works. With over 22 years of experience with adolescents and their families, I have worked with the Department of Juvenile Justice in the capacity of residential facilities, outpatient settings and as a treatment provider.

I offer families a thorough evaluation and treatment recommendations that are specific to the court’s requirements. In addition, I provide treatment specific to juveniles with sexual behavior problems. My treatment supports the needs of the individual and their families, including the reunification process.
