  • I accept referrals from individuals as well as family physicians, psychiatrists and attorneys in the Tri-State area.

  • For over 20 years, I have worked with many of the attorneys, Family Law Judges and Circuit Court Judges in West Virginia.  I am often court ordered by judges to provide counseling to children and their families.
  • I am often subpoenaed to testify in high conflict divorce and custody cases as well as those involving expert testimony in abuse and neglect.  I render my expert opinion in areas of child development which involves making sure that the emotional needs of children are not being compromised.

  • I also assist parents in the development of court ordered parenting plans. These cases are often high conflict cases and require a great deal of work with the entire family system.
