Please know you are not alone in the complexities of adoption .
I help adults and teens struggling with not feeling enough or struggling with trying to be perfect. You may often feel insecure, hopeless or wonder if you will feel like this forever? If this sounds familiar, it can be difficult to deal with the day to day stress and often feel like you are just "going through the motions." Change can be hard but it is possible! You want to know that someone gets it and you are ready to take steps to begin feeling differently. The fact that you are here looking for help, is proof that you are ready.

You feel out of control. In your job, relationships, or business. Or maybe as a parent. We have many roles. Maybe you say things that you don't mean. Or maybe you say or do nothing when you actually should. When you feel content, healthy and rested, your life seems easier despite what life throws at you. It's normal to not do your best when you feel anxious, don't sleep, feel overwhelmed but you don't like taking medication. Maybe it's time for a job or career change! We can start setting goals together and have you enjoying your life again and use your anxiety as your ally! *Two spaces per week are reserved for new clients.

*NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* Children and teens face the difficult challenge of expressing and modulating emotions in an adult-focused world. The expectations and pressure are sometimes overwhelming. Stress and distress also impact adults, especially during these unprecedented times. Utilizing client strengths, relationship themes, and self-regulation techniques, I help clients learn to cope effectively instead of suppressing feelings or self-medicating. Together, we can identify problem thoughts and behaviors, how they were historically adaptive, why they are maladaptive now, and how to make positive changes for the future.

Most people come to therapy because they need some kind of support or are looking for change in their life. While this sounds simple, it is not easy to accomplish, since we may be taught not to ask for help or to just accept things the way they are. Someone who may benefit from therapy the most would be someone who can keep an open mind, be motivated to work toward change, and to have patience to allow the process to work.

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.
