Therapy is a process of self-discovery that often entails delving into past relationships and trauma to uncover their affect on our relationships with ourselves, our families and the outside world. My work with children, adolescents, individuals, couples and families is designed to restore trust, joy and zest and to develop meaningful connections and skills to thrive-mindfulness, authenticity and inner strength. As a Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapist (DDP), I work with various subsets of the family and bring an attachment focused interpersonal neurobiological approach to create a safe and supportive environment to nurture healthy individuals, couples and families in any orientation or socio-economic status.

I draw on research-based relational approaches - DDP, Attachment Focused Family Therapy, Interpersonal Neurobiology, Theraplay (tm), play therapy, mindfulness, neuroscience, trauma and attachment research- along with evidenced-based practices such as TF-CBT. Every individual/family requires their own treatment plan customized to meet the needs and objectives of each, on the path toward wellness.

As an adoptive parent and an adoption focused therapist, I bring a unique understanding of the identity/developmental issues. Each member of the adoption quadrant - adoptee, birth parent, foster and adoptive parents and biological children may experience challenges that affect our relationships within the family and the outside world.
