We all find ourselves in places in our lives where we ask how we arrived to where we are. It can be confusing, disorienting, and overwhelming. Sometimes being able to shift focus and try a new approach can be helpful. My hope is to have the privilege to walk along side you as you consider change, embrace exploration, and solidify your internal foundation. Adolescents and children face difficulties that can become behavioral challenges for parents and the family system. Changes from loss, family additions, and divorce can also be unsettling. Knowing how to navigate through those challenges sometimes requires outside support.

I work to help adults, teenagers, and children find relief from emotional suffering, increase resilience in the face of life's challenges, improve relationships, and enhance self-esteem and life satisfaction.
You may be seeking therapy because you find yourself repeating the same unhelpful patterns – in your relationships, at work or school, or in how you feel and think about yourself – but you don’t seem able to change them. Or you may be concerned about the emotional or behavioral patterns that your child or teenager is developing, and not know how to help them.

Most of my clients are children, adolescents, adults or families with adoption as part of their story, who are seeking help with issues related to trauma, development, relationships and family life.
I work with kids and families on issues of attachment after adoption, trauma, related behavioral problems, emotional regulation, social skills, identity and separation issues. With kids I make use of a variety of play and art therapy techniques. Infants and very young children are seen in conjunction with their caregivers, in dyadic formation. With adults we work to recognize old patterns, gain awareness about internal conflicts, tolerate and overcome the threat of change, and awaken to new and more satisfying possibilities for thinking, relating and living. EMDR may used to process trauma. Somatic techniques may be used as well.

I have training and experience using Play Therapy and Sandplay, which employ children's natural way of communicating and learning, as well as other therapeutic modalities as appropriate to each individual. My approach is client centered and often non-directive, believing that when children experience emotional safety in a non-judgmental relationship, their inner wisdom naturally emerges to guide their learning, healing and growth.
