In addition, I am an adoption competent therapist that is able to treat families that are going through the foster care/ adoption process.
Moms are the backbone of our society and yet we feel exhausted and burnt out by the demands that are put on us. My goal is to nurture those that are burnt out by this crazy life so they can experience true rest, grace, and are empowered to love themselves and others well. Through our work together, you will learn more about yourself and ways to care for yourself and your little ones.

Be able and confident to use real tools helping to bring ease in your life and get your world on track. There is help for suffering, PTSD, anxiety, etc. that does not always involve having to trench up the past, but rather, can work right now to bring relief. Are you hurting or stuck? Often our past laid down unconscious survival mechanisms that are at work today that are no longer useful. We can work together to discover these and then insert a new and more useful tool that can allow more ease in your world. I help you identify current needs are so that these can be supported.

Life is difficult, laden with pain and suffering. And sometimes it seems to come to a climax, bringing us to a point of questioning so much about what we used to hold so dear and precious. These moments can seem overwhelming, confusing, and, strangely, may also be an opportunity to explore what comes next, with openness and mindfulness. I come with 30+ years of experience providing compassionate skill in helping individuals and couples deal with issues of being alive on this planet, helping in the process of creating ones life in ways that are consistent with ones dreams and ideals

"As therapists, we are public servants. We have devoted our lives to making something from nothing, to find complex solutions to complex problems. To care and hold space in the face of disaster, trauma and fear. To give assurance and strength and help others rise." - Kirsten Haney LMFT

I grew up witnessing the effects of social injustice, conflict and violence on individuals and communities that simply strive for peace and belonging. I have spent decades of my life walking alongside survivors whose basic rights were stripped and who sought to identify a path towards healing and belonging. My deep understanding of loss and pain has empowered me to develop compassion and empathy towards survivors, and my knowledge and experience in the helping profession has instilled in me the passion to learn and connect. ​ My approach is unique in that it offers a compassionate, holistic and effective model meeting survivor

Are you feeling anxious or overwhelmed? Have you tried everything you can think of to solve the problem, change your circumstances, or just feel better on your own? If you're deep in the mire of anxiety and depression, trying to make a positive change, or just barely managing to make it through the day, it can be tough to think that things could be different. You can feel frustrated, disconnected, and stuck. Getting the right support can be the ticket to moving out of being stuck and taking steps toward living the life you'd like to be living.

(Secure Video Conferencing is available). I am a licensed neuropsychologist with expertise in how behavior and skills are related. I help adults, parents, and their children, who are struggling and those who are gifted (2e). The joy of my work is to help identify a child's or adult's strengths, so that the weak areas do not define who you are. A correct diagnosis helps you determine the most effective ways forward. These evaluations are also used in school 504 or IEP's, SAT, &ACT accommodations. An evaluation is also helpful if you're concerned about memory or dementia.

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.
