Being home with your kids in a pandemic is a LOT to handle. It feels impossible to keep on top of online schoolwork, get meals ready, and get your own work done. You're exhausted. And that means more fights with your partner, too. You just need a moment to yourself. To relax and regroup. You're so ready for the kids to go back to school. But you're dreading that moment too. You remember the phone calls about classroom behavior and unfinished assignments. And the meltdowns over drama with friends. You're not sure you're ready to handle all that again. But it CAN get better. Now, and in the future.

As an attachment-focused and trauma-informed licensed clinical social worker for more than ten years, I’ve primarily worked in the fields of adoption and foster care. It has been a privilege to provide home study, post placement and clinical services to families as they sought and sustained permanency for children through domestic and international adoption, foster and kinship care. This has increased my understanding around issues including attachment disruption, transracial adoption, behavior management, fertility, loss, grief, identify formation and school issues.

Helping people with disabilities help ourselves! Learning you have a chronic illness or disability can feel overwhelming. You may feel "broken," alone, or depressed, but you're not. I've successfully helped clients work through the initial shock of diagnosis, learn effective coping skills, and view the present and future in a realistic, positive light. I've also helped clients with chronic illnesses maximize their quality of life and reach their goals, such as returning to work or school, or being a better parent or spouse. We'll set up a plan that meets your needs now, then empower you to reach your goals together.

This approach is successful with clients seeking help with adulting, relationships, families, and parenting as well as individual therapy. As an open and affirming Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner I've learned that the integration of these talk modalities are helpful for navigating life processes. Talk therapy undergirds the treatment relationship and when necessary may be complemented with medication management.
