I have a specialization in working with adult children of dysfunctional families. I help folks who didn't receive emotional and psychological attunement from their parents as children, due to parental narcissism, trauma, substance abuse, and/ or mental illness, or due to abandonment, neglect, excessive criticism, and/ or abuse. I offer support with finding one's voice, self-esteem, shyness and social anxiety, introversion, sensitivity, and life meaning, purpose, and transitions. I offer support in cultivating authentic connection with others and in healing struggles in relationships around self-esteem, assertiveness, boundaries, enmeshment and co-dependence, and isolation.

I work with couples around managing the impact on the relationship of one or both partners' trauma history, balancing individuality and relationship, co-dependence, boundaries, communication skills, conflict management, and affair recovery.

I bring humility, respect, and genuine interest to our collaboration. My style is down to earth, non-pathologizing, and interactive, with healthy doses of humor. I appreciate you as multi-dimensional - feeling, thinking, physical, spiritual, and social. I welcome diversity and embrace a social justice perspective.
