Whether your an adoptive parent wondering about your child’s behavior, or a individual wondering about opening up your adoption , or a birthmother who finds that she needs help with grief, you will be in good hands.
Did you know that there are normal and predictable developmental milestones for all adoptees, birth parents and adoptive parents? Knowing and understanding these can help you navigate life in a more empowered manner. As a member of the adoption constellation, I know from the inside out, the issues facing this population. I have dedicated my life and work as a psychologist, to help educate and heal the lives of all who are affected. While it is sometimes difficult to experience the loss and grief that is inherent in adoption. once It is embraced and validated, this difficult concept becomes manageable and life can be lived more fully

In addition to my professional training, my life experiences give me a deep understanding of the complex issues surrounding adoption, including infertility, loss, trauma, and hope.
My individual clients want help getting unstuck from painful thought patterns that, like a needle in the deep groove of a record, make it impossible to hear anything else. Their life feels like a series of repetitive patterns - they keep doing the same thing over and over, or dating the same type of person over and over. Many of them are talented and high achieving, yet relentlessly critical of themselves. The couples who come for counseling want help getting unstuck, too. They have the same fight over and over again. Or the physical intimacy is all but gone from their relationship and each of them feel too stuck to initiate sex.

My approach to psychotherapy is to explore and process patterned thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that inhibit well-being. I believe that through exploring how our past affects our present and looking at the patterns we tend to repeat, one can gain insight and a sense of empowerment over their current circumstances in order to heal, grow and transform. I have over 20 years of experience working with adults, teens, and children regarding a number of issues including anxiety, depression, foster care & adoption, sexual abuse, codependency, drug and alcohol abuse, relationship counseling, family counseling and faith based counseling.

It is my belief that we generally want to feel safe, secure and connected to ourselves, our families/friends and our communities. Obstacles to doing so can include circumstances outside of our control and also the results of our own learned patterns and behaviors. Therapy is an integral part of healing past trauma, validating one's thoughts/feelings/emotions, identifying dysfunctional patterns of engagement and learning new skills to cope. Through work with a therapist, it is possible to shape a life and relationships that include confidence, calm and presence that is so often missed in the busyness of society today.
