As an attachment-focused and trauma-informed licensed clinical social worker for more than ten years, I’ve primarily worked in the fields of adoption and foster care. It has been a privilege to provide home study, post placement and clinical services to families as they sought and sustained permanency for children through domestic and international adoption, foster and kinship care. This has increased my understanding around issues including attachment disruption, transracial adoption, behavior management, fertility, loss, grief, identify formation and school issues.

I am a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner committed to mental health treatment promotion and prevention. With a psychodynamic foundation, I integrate Internal family systems(IFS) and attachment theories to my treatment approach. This approach is successful with clients seeking help with adulting, relationships, families, and parenting as well as individual therapy. As an open and affirming Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner I've learned that the integration of these talk modalities are helpful for navigating life processes. Talk therapy undergirds the treatment relationship and when necessary may be complemented with medication management.

You've struggled with anxiety or depression for as long as you can remember. Living this way is exhausting, and you want something different. Regular talk therapy can be helpful, but sometimes it's not enough.

I encourage people to broaden their awareness into their thoughts, feelings, reactions and behaviors to identify strengths and whats working and challenges and how they are getting in the way. Recognizing the the mind-body-spirit connection, understanding healthy and antiquated defenses and increasing capacity for feeling a greater range of emotions at a deeper level is an important focus of the psychotherapy process. Identifying feelings, understanding reactions and learning better, more effective means of communicating with others is integral as well.
