"Since 2012 I have been working with adopted children and their families as they work to adjust to their life together. It isn't always easy, and not everyone hears each other when they are trying to communicate. This is normal given everyone's experiences in their own lives, but especially in kids who are struggling with relinquishment. Do you want to better connect with your child? Do you want your child to have a healthy and successful life?"

"Deciding to seek a counselor and address tough issues can feel daunting. I understand that and have years of experience working with those struggling to overcome abuse, dysfunction, personal losses, and trauma. If you have family concerns, or have individual struggles recovering from dysfunction, I can take you where you're at right now and help you find the place you would like to be. You may be haunted by memories from military combat, or be the family member of someone who has deployed. This is a place you can come for understanding and support in overcoming your unique challenges. "

"I am a home based therapist. I believe all children deserve a loving family that knows how to best parent them. While I do not have an "ideal client" per se, I do believe no child should be taken off alone to develop an attachment to me, the therapist. Children should attach and bond to their parents so therapy with foster and adopted children is most effective within the family. When working with older youth in foster care, individual therapy may be warranted, but I would prefer to work with the family whenever that is a viable option."

"When working with individuals, I aim to help them through a collaborative process to understand the underlying issues that are causing them to not live up to their potential. The model which I employ assumes that many of our struggles are connected to conflicts within us of which we are not completely aware. I feel that therapy is most effective when the entire person's personality and history are considered instead of just focusing on current problematic behaviors. My work focuses on recognizing long standing relationship patterns that are troublesome as well as developing a more emotionally stable and adaptive personality."

"In my practice I work with families and children who have experienced trauma and are having attachment difficulties. Many children I see have pre-verbal trauma from parental stress during pregnancy, adoption, neglect, or abuse. Some of the children I see are experiencing traumatic stress due to gender fluidity or gender dysphoria. Because trauma is the result of feeling helpless in a situation, many of the families I see have never thought of their child's behavior as a symptom of a life trauma. This shift in perspective is often the beginning of the healing process."

You wonder if you'll ever be able to stop thinking about the bad thing that happened. You don't recognize yourself anymore and grieve the self you once were.
