Special focus on adoption community and adult children of emotionally immature/unavailable parents.
My approach to therapy is based on the idea that if we can gain self-awareness and insight into our thoughts, feelings and behaviors, then we can learn and develop the skills we need to have more satisfying relationships, with ourselves and others, and better cope with life's challenges.

I work with a broad range of clients from teens to elders and treat a wide range of issues: Anxiety, depression, substance abuse, domestic violence, adoption issues, mental illness in the family, loss.
As we move through life, some challenges easily become roadblocks to living the life we want. In therapy you can start to understand your struggles, find your strengths and experience a world that is unique to you. Therapy could be the most significant step you have ever taken. Together we might explore how your past relationships and your relationships with others came to be, how to integrate the conflict and tension that have become a challenge in your life, how to develop new skills to manage the issues you are presently facing.

Initial encounters with anyone involve presenting stories of who we are. However, sometimes life makes it difficult to really tell our true stories. My goal is to help individuals achieve their highest potential and live a fulfilling life by telling their authentic stories. My practice focuses on tailoring therapy to each client rather than tailoring my clients to the therapy. I am a licensed psychotherapist, providing therapy to children, adolescents, and adults. I have training in various treatment approaches including, but not limited to, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and strength-based techniques.

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.
