I help people wanting to heal trauma, including adoptees and others with early trauma, move towards the life and relationships they want. I use the wisdom of the body as well as the mind to work with people on issues of identity, connection, anxiety, depression and how trauma is held in the body, the way the body keeps the score. My goal is to help you find both symptom relief and, if you want it, deeper change. Together we will look at whatever gets in the way of you feeling embodied and connected, and grounded in your sense of self. I work on this with individuals and also in groups (see below, I have two groups for adoptees).

Congratulations on taking this step in seeking help and support for yourself or your family. I work with children and adolescents, families, men, and women. My 20-plus years of clinical work with children and families is built on an attachment-oriented foundation and is informed by my personal experience as an adoptive parent and training in relevant play and family therapies. Regardless of a child’s emotional/behavioral presentation or attachment (RAD) history, I view parents as partners in their child’s therapeutic process and support and guide them, in parent sessions and/or in family sessions with their child.
