Family life can be where we feel loved and supported, or we feel confusion, overwhelm, and grief. Family life is already complicated, especially when it is impacted by trauma, neurodiveristy, or adoption and foster care, or some combination of all three. Subsequently, you can feel misunderstood, alone, and "othered" by friends and family. And I see you! I provide a safe and compassionate environment through the lens of relational neuroscience, specializing in the care for adults and parents impacted by trauma, neurodiversity, adoption , and foster care.

Specialties include anxiety, OCD, sadness, life transitions, grief and loss, chronic illness, infertility, adoption & trauma.
As a therapist, I work from the perspective that therapy can enable you to positively change your understanding of yourself, your encounters with life's stressors, and your capacity to find pleasure and enjoyment. My approach is founded in building strong relationships based on trust and respect that enable one to develop tools to change existing patterns that previously caused unhappiness and discomfort. I utilize family and individually focused therapy and employ the methods of ACT, DBT, CBT and EMDR to help people bring understanding to their lives and enable transitions from discomfort and sadness toward happiness.

I seek clients who are open to discovering their story and how it led them to their current circumstance. I am best able to nurture a relationship with a client who is aware of their reason for seeking support and is comfortable with a direct perspective to realizing their goals. My approach to working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families is centered on the philosophy that we are experiencing components of our personal story daily. When we conclude a chapter, it can impact the next chapter. By understanding our experiences and crafting our next steps, we can shape our story.

In C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia there is a scene with a young girl named Lucy where she hears about a heroic lion named Aslan. She learns that he brings much needed hope and peace, but he is also described as strong and fierce. This prompts Lucy to ask if the lion is “safe.” The response to her is, “No… ‘course he isn’t safe. But he is good.” Choosing to start therapy (or return again), is a lot like this exchange. It can be scary to open up your hopes, fears, shame, disappointments, or trauma. But, it is good, and if you choose to take this courageous step I would be honored to walk alongside you in your healing.
