"I believe that every person can benefit from receiving counseling at some point in their lives. We all face struggles with achieving our goals, understanding and overcoming our past hurts, or resolving conflict with others. It can be extremely helpful to have a compassionate, objective person to talk to when these issues arise. I truly enjoy developing a caring, supportive relationship with each client. This connection can then be the foundation for facilitating understanding, growth, and positive change. I enjoy working with clients to identify their strengths and develop realistic, achievable goals."

"How we understand our life stories, how we share our stories with others and how we deal with life's challenges is important for all of us. Adoption adds a layer of complexity. Issues of attachment, identity, behavioral regulation, self-esteem and the impact of a difficult/unknown early history can take on added significance as children grow and mature into young adults. At The Cradle Center for Lifelong Support, I work with all members of the adoption circle. My expertise is in strengthening children and families by improving attachment, communication and understanding, with the goal of helping children/teens succeed."

"When everyday life is hard to manage or understand, it helps to talk with someone caring who asks the right questions. You want to feel in charge of your own life and able to set and reach goals that are meaningful to you. You'll leave therapy knowing more about getting what you want in life, and feeling more confident in your choices."
