I also work with youth who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered.
I am a home based therapist. I believe all children deserve a loving family that knows how to best parent them. While I do not have an "ideal client" per se, I do believe no child should be taken off alone to develop an attachment to me, the therapist. Children should attach and bond to their parents so therapy with foster and adopted children is most effective within the family. When working with older youth in foster care, individual therapy may be warranted, but I would prefer to work with the family whenever that is a viable option.

Someone once told me that everyone is walking around with an 'under construction' sign above their head, meaning that behind the scenes everyone is working on something. My goal is to help you fix your perception of you and to assist you in finding your way to living a life you deem fulfilling. Occasionally in life, we are found at a crossroads and are in need of some type of support, or change.

Family dynamics are often complicated and difficult. While we often find comfort and stability within our family, it is all too common to experience problems that we’re just not quite prepared to address. Parents may feel unsure of themselves or overwhelmed by increasing demands on their time and attention. Children and teens may struggle to feel they can open up with their parents for several reasons. Communication breaks down and the family that once felt so close knit is starting to drift apart. While we know we need help, it can be difficult to take that first step and reach out.

I often work with individuals who do not want to just survive life, but to instead thrive in what wellness means to them. They are people who may feel like hope is just out of reach, and perhaps afraid to change or scared to ask for therapeutic help. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, but instead it is proof that you are stronger than you have ever been. Change is frightening and many people are not sure how to begin. From a therapeutic and personal perspective, I want to support you.

I believe that success in therapy is dependent on the strength of the relationship between the counselor and client.
