My training and specialization include relationships, marriage and family therapy, trauma, women’s issues, and adoption-sensitive therapy, including transracial adoption issues.
I believe in the redemptive power of relationships and have championed the cause for more than a decade by walking alongside individuals, couples and families as they heal and grow. I believe relationships can be healing instruments. Trauma and loss can be transformed. Vulnerability is courage. And when we connect to ourselves, we can effectively connect to others. This work is my passion. As an adoptive parent and psychotherapist, I also understand and respect both the pressures involved in building a family, coupled with the unique gifts and learning experiences that the adoption dynamic brings.
