I have experience working with couples that are going through or have gone through the adoption process and couples that have dealt with or are dealing with infertility.
Making the step to begin the counseling process can be scary and overwhelming; but it can be the first step toward healing and change. I absolutely love working with individuals and couples. Walking along side clients as they journey their way through hurt, anger, grief, frustration, and other emotions, is my pleasure. Some of the clients with whom I have worked came to me when things seemed to be very grim and hopeless. It has been my pleasure to watch them put in the hard work and commitment to the therapeutic process and come out as stronger individuals and couples.

I have worked with attachment issues around adoption.
I believe that walking alongside hurting individuals, couples, and families is a crucial element on the path to healing. Brokenness, chaos, shattered relationships, and loss are often concealed gifts of transformation. People who have experienced trauma resulting in attachment struggles, addictions, anxiety, codependency and relational conflict are common to the individuals I see. Keith, my husband, and I offer couples and family therapy together as we feel that it is effective and expedient. When I am not counseling with my husband, I work with individuals and families who are in crisis and are desperate for change.

I believe that one of the greatest power and influence in our lives are our relationships with others. It is from relationships that all of our trauma, negativity, and heartache originate; however, it is only through relationships that we can also find true healing for prior wounds that continue to determine present actions and emotions. The difference in these two kinds of relationships is honesty, vulnerability, and reciprocity: a mutual connection that cultivates intimacy and acceptance by removing shame and anxiety. It is only through these authentic relationships that we can truly feel complete and secure in our own skin.

I know that the first step of getting help for your child can be very scary. However, at some point you realized you needed some extra help. Maybe it was when you no longer recognized your own child. When you realized they were no longer their old self after that bad thing happened to them. Or when you felt like you had to walk on eggshells around your sensitive, moody, misunderstood pre-teen just to keep some level of peace. Or when you realized you didn't know how to help your child because you put so much time and effort into helping your other child who has more severe issues.

It is a privilege to work with clients wherever they are in their personal journey. Every individual and every relationship has a story, but not everyone knows how to give voice to it. Healing comes through having a safe place to tell the story, and a safe person to hear it. Each time I sit with a client, I am humbled by their courage. I hold each story as sacred, as together we purpose to find meaning, healing, and hope.

All of us long for meaningful lives and connected relationships with those we love. So why do we struggle to find these things? For some, the pain of our unhealed past wounds keep leaking into and sabotaging our relationships. Others of us carry burdens from difficult life circumstances that keep us stuck. Many of us are so tired of trying to meet everyone else’s needs that we’ve lost any sense of ourselves. Whatever our current situation, all of us need some combination of hope that things can change and lead to a better future. Counseling can help you discover the pathways to get there.

Have you been wounded? Many wounds occurred through relationships, and it is through relationship where they can be restored. Though not easy, many of those I work with begin to take risks, experience more meaningful relationships, and even a greater sense of joy in life.
