Most of my clients are recovering from trauma or chronic stress, while many others come seeking help in overcoming depression, anxiety, loss, significant life changes, and parenting challenges. I specialize in addressing the unique needs of individuals and families involved in adoption, whether as an adopted individual, birth parent, or adoptive parent, and those seeking to hold on to or rediscover their faith after spiritual wounding. I am a certified EMDR therapist and have training in using this transformative therapy with both young people and adults.
I use lenses of interpersonal neurobiology and attachment theory to collaborate with clients in developing an individualized plan for their therapy. With my youngest clients, parents are active members of the treatment team and are included in therapy. My special focus on adoption and trauma-related issues comes from over 15 years' experience in those areas.
Starting therapy can feel daunting, so my first goal is to provide clients of all ages, backgrounds, and needs with an environment of warmth, acceptance, and safety. You likely already have an idea of the kind of changes you'd like to see in your life; my goal is to help you get there. I look forward to hearing from you.

More about this group

Adopted Adolescent Girls' Group

This group, forming now, is a six-session group that will meet once a month. Group participants are adolescent girls, ages 13-17, who are adopted and want to meet and talk with other young women about their experiences and feelings related to adoption. Each month also addresses a different topic, including grief and loss, developing one's identity, questions about birth family, relationship challenges, and impact of separation or other forms of trauma prior to adoption.
