About

My objective in therapy is to assist clients regain a sense of balance and well-being that brings with it a sense of personal empowerment. As adults we all have life challenges, whether it be the loss of a loved one, ending of a marriage/relationship, or the challenges of work and parenting. I see myself as a guide to help you to once again feel in control of your life.
In my work with families I also bring to therapy an appreciation and understanding of adoptive families and the unique perspectives that come with building a family. As a single parent who is also an adoptive parent, this understanding is deeply ingrained in my work.
I have worked in educational circles throughout my career and have grown to appreciate the constant re-defining we do throughout our life. Developmentally, we change with every new experience and I enjoy helping individuals take life transitions to new heights.
