During my 18 years of clinical practice, I've worked with diverse populations specializing in developmental and relational concerns common to teens and assisting their parents and guardians; foster care and adoption support and education; resolving childhood trauma; and grief, loss and separation.
It is the desire of every human being to be loved and to belong. The only true thing that distinguishes us from one another is our experiences and our perspective of those experiences. Your past, the personal struggles and decisions you currently face and the conflicts between you and those you care about does not define you. What I offer is empathy, compassion, and support with a focus on creating a warm, safe and welcoming environment where you can be heard and understood without judgment.

The path to motherhood and the experience of being a mother are complicated journeys. Whether you’ve struggled with getting and staying pregnant or decided to pursue infertility treatment or adoption, you are not alone. You may have become a mother in a traditional way and still struggle with the demands of life or you may have decided not to pursue motherhood after unexpected difficulties. We have all experienced challenges as women and mothers and though we persevere, we rarely allow ourselves the space to process the profound personal and relational changes that occur in our lives.
