At Lifeline, we specialize in adoption and foster care related issues like attachment, trauma, identity development of adoptees, grief, and so much more, and approach treatment in a way that involves the whole family.
Adopting or fostering comes with many challenges. Families go into it excited about the child they will love and care for, and it is common to experience many challenges in loving a child from a hard place. Children placed for adoption or in foster care have experienced a great deal of loss. This leaves them dealing with pain on a deep level. Families often feel guilty or like they haven't been good parents if their child experiences attachment difficulties. But the truth is that it would be weird if they didn't based on their life experiences. These issues are complex and multi-layered, often involving the entire family system.

I specialize in issues related to trauma, adoption , and supporting children and families.
UPDATE as of 10/01/22... I currently am NOT able to take on new clients. I appreciate your interest and apologize for any convenience this may create. I will be taking on new MFT associates to supervise late October, so please reach out if interested. We all struggle in life sometimes and need help! In this day and age it can be hard to find the space to discuss the challenges of life with someone in a safe and genuine way. I enjoy meeting people where they are at in life, without judgement, and helping them sort out their next steps whether they be for improvement, maintenance, or understanding.

Life can be messy, unpredictable, and overwhelming at times. Everyday stressors can feel like insurmountable obstacles standing in the way of a peaceful life. Relationships with your friends, children & family can be confusing and challenging, prompting you to feel isolated. You may even experience hopelessness, thoughts that won't go away, or difficulty imagining a better life. In addition to meeting the needs of people struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and family conflict, members of the adoption triad will find a safe space here to explore their story and prepare to meet the unique needs that encompass adoption .

Since 1995,I have worked with adolescents and adults, specifically in the areas of substance abuse, PTSD, trauma, adoption , family and relationship issues.
Sojourn means "to stay for a time in a place or to live temporarily". This is my view of our life on earth. It is a temporary stay, and our time here can be difficult, confusing and painful at times. Sometimes, we need help navigating. I believe that we each have a unique story and set of experiences that make us who we are. What we believe about ourselves and the world around us impacts how we feel and respond to life. I'd like to help you navigate life so that you may have the most abundant life possible.

Find your happy place at A New Direction. Life can change in an instant. Unexpected life events & unforeseen circumstances can shake the very foundation of our lives and shatter our illusions of control. A multitude of unanticipated events can negatively impact our lives, destroy our sense of safety, impair our mental health, & complicate our interpersonal relationships. Many times families and friends struggle to provide the support and direction we need during the turbulent seasons of life. It takes strength & courage to reach out for help but the benefits of taking that risk can lead to new insight, personal growth, and freedom.

Life can be hard, but you don’t have to struggle alone. Every season of life brings with it a mixture of joy and pain as well as unique challenges and uncharted emotions. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, stuck, unequipped or just in need of support and acceptance in a non-judgmental environment, you have come to the right place. I believe a safe and comfortable therapy environment in which you feel understood, respected and valued provides the best place for you to receive objective feedback to move toward growth. My counseling style is engaging, warm and client-focused with an approach that combines CBT and solution-focused therapy.

Change can seem daunting, but always leads to wisdom, increased awareness and self-improvement. Best of all, change can be accomplished with dignity and poise; life's speed bumps don't always have to turn into a train wreck. Learning to trust the process of growth with courage, leads to self-actualization. I bring over 30 years of experience to your counseling needs and am licensed in AL, SC, GA and OR (and FL for telehealth). Focus areas include navigating through life changes, mood disorders, PTSD, anxiety, stress management, family problems, identity shifts, child/play therapy, parenting and social media issues.

Adoption Therapists
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
