Expert's Profile

As a child abuse investigator of over 11.5 years I attained an investigative skill set and an ability to work conjointly with law enforcement and the courts. Child Protective Services allotted me the opportunity to learn what did and did not work within “the system.” I am fortunate to be able to utilize my substantial experience in this area on various cases and provide my expertise. I enjoy being in private practice and have been licensed since 2009.

As a "recommending" Child Custody Evaluator in Family Law Court, my background in Child Protective Services (CPS) gives me an advantage in my assessments especially when issues of child abuse arise. I enjoy working with the court system and attorneys.

I currently train new social workers for Child Protective Services in child abuse investigations, mental health, values and ethics, intimate partner violence and testimony. I also coach and train therapists on courtroom testimony and court related matters.

I am also an independent expert for the Board of Behavioral Sciences.

I am the director of a non-profit that provides free courtroom preparation to children who are victims or witnesses to crimes, in family law custody issues and/or are in foster care. The preparation increases the validity of the testimony in court while empowering the child and reducing their trauma.
