"I specialize in working with individuals who have been touched by adoption. Every adopted person has his/her own unique feelings about being adopted. For some, these may be "back burner" yet for others they may be more complex. I counsel adoptees - at various life stages - as they explore how adoption may affect their identity, feelings surrounding grief and loss, intimacy issues and relationships with family and friends. I have also worked with many adoptees (and birth parents) as they navigate the complexities of the search and reunion process and reconnection. "
