Talking through feelings, experiences and emotions can be more helpful and healing than many people realize. I am passionate about helping women and couples who are struggling with infertility, IVF and alternate methods of family building (including adoption , foster care, surrogacy), as well as, postpartum anxiety/depression. I am an IVF mom who left a career in sales and marketing to pursue a counseling degree after my own long battle with infertility and PPD. I also love to help moms who are trying to balance taking care of themselves with the responsibility of raising tiny humans. I, also, work with anxiety and depression.

We now know that adoption itself is not the end of the story.
Being a teen or a young adult today is hard! It is easy to lose sight of who you are and who you want to be. Teens and young adults who have been adopted can feel confused, frightened, alone, and “different” than their non-adopted friends and peers. Some common questions might be, what is going on with me? Why do I feel this way? Where is this pain and confusion coming from? Being a parent to a teenager or young adult can be pretty rough too! How do I help my emerging adult find their way and navigate life with confidence? Becoming your best self can be a rocky road…and adoption adds its own obstacles. I am here to help.

Many of the children have attachment issues due to foster care and adoption .

I will give you support and compassion in a safe nonjudgemental setting. I have experience working with children, teens, and adults who have experienced abuse, neglect, and trauma, or have ADHD. I do individual and family therapy and choose an eclectic therapeutic style to match clinical methods with each client's particular need. I am comfortable with faith as an integral foundation if the client chooses to include this in the therapy process.

Just as trauma often happens in the context of relationship, so healing can happen in a trusting, therapeutic relationship. My experiences with the adoption triad, a high-control religious environment, and trauma have led me into this work after 25 years of raising my six children, by birth and adoption . In this, I developed a passion for helping people heal from, adjust to, and manage their traumatic life experiences and transition to healthy living. I work from a self-regulatory, attachment, processing, and connected perspective. I use an eclectic approach including EMDR, CBT, DBT, TBRI and psychoeducational approach.

I have extensive experience with attachment and attunement, foster care/ adoption , anxiety, ADHD, and Autism.
“The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct.”- Carl Jung. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), I work with all ages. I have worked with children and families for over 20 years, and my greatest joy is found in being a “helper.” Registered Play Therapist means that I have a specialty in play therapy. While this specialty equips me in a unique way to work with children and adolescents, I believe that play helps us to see our way through life's problems with fresh eyes. It's common for me to incorporate some playfulness in all my work with families and individuals.

Human beings are hard-wired for connection, which is as essential for survival as food, water, and air. When a person is deprived of that connection it creates bondage that can be crushing, robbing us of the freedom we were created to enjoy. My clinical experience includes trauma, attachment issues, adoption , parenting, marriage, family conflict, anxiety/depression, and spiritual formation.

Many will enter therapy thinking, “What have I been doing wrong to get here?” I meet clients and think, “What have you been doing right to make it this far?” Yes, I think a bit backwards, but it’s what allows me to find innovative ways to help clients move forward using their strengths. Individuals, couples, and families who have previously felt stuck in complex issues with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief & loss, adoption , parenting, and relationships report finding relief through embracing their strengths and being reassured that their experience is valid. This helps tap into their innate ability to heal and renew balance.

Parenting can be extremely challenging! When children have experienced early developmental trauma due to adoption , foster care, abuse or neglect, the impact on children and young adults often leads to attachment challenges. Many of the children and families I assist feel stuck in a negative pattern of conflict, defiance, manipulation and anger. I believe the primary means for change is through playful, accepting, reciprocal connections between caregivers and children. By exploring the barriers to these connections and instilling hope for something different, families can begin to create new pathways for healing and lasting change.

Particularly with the unique challenges connected with the adoption , foster-care and trauma.
Empowering parent's and caregiver's ability to connect with their child in a deep and meaningful way is the central focus of Spencer’s approach to overcoming challenges. This begins when parents/caregivers are able to resolve any challenges in the relationship that may be a barrier to therapy. Once this occurs, caregivers and their child can begin, in a safe and therapeutic environment, to explore the trauma, abuse, neglect, abandonment and loss which are the emotional source to behavioral struggles.

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.
