The decision to seek therapy takes courage. I aim to provide a non-judgmental space that allows you to feel comfortable and understood. The best outcome in therapy comes from a trusting and collaborative relationship between the therapist and you. In my work, one of the main outcomes is for you to appreciate your strengths, how you have used your strengths to overcome previous challenges, and how you can use them to face current and future situations.

It can be hard to change our habits and ways of relating with ourselves and with others even when old patterns are causing significant emotional pain. For real change to take place, something beyond motivation and a commitment to change is often needed. What can make a real difference involves finding a receptive person and an accepting environment that fosters a deeper understanding of one's self. I strive to provide such a receptive and safe environment to my clients with hope that they feel listened to, understood, and recognized in their desires to get to know themselves, to connect with others and to feel alive in the world.

Individuals can get stuck and couples often bicker over seemingly small stuff. The easy solutions don't work. Why? In many cases, those petty problems are tethered to larger meanings for the individuals. The real solutions need to address these deeper issues. I provide a place where individuals and couples can safely explore and clarify -- what's really going on here? With both individuals and couples, I encourage people to look inward -- how am I contributing to this impasse? How is this related to my history? And importantly, what can we do about it now?

Old emotional wounds or patterns keep nagging at us, keeping us from feeling free to live authentically. Relationships can be one the most rewarding or distressing parts of our lives.

It has been a privilege to provide home study, post placement and clinical services to families as they sought and sustained permanency for children through domestic and international adoption, foster and kinship care. This has increased my understanding around issues including attachment disruption, transracial adoption, behavior management, fertility, loss, grief, identify formation and school issues.
