Announcement icon I am seeing clients through phone and video sessions to meet you where you are.
I am the Chief Clinical Officer at Spence-Chapin with over 20 years of experience working with children and families. I have had the chance to work with and study numerous therapeutic models and after all this time my approach has become eclectic. One size does not fit all. I understand how much damage trauma can do to a child, a family and future outcomes. In order to heal you need to feel emotionally supported, you need practical skills, and education to understand how you can help either you or your child. I want you to feel comfortable so you can express the issues that brought you or your family to therapy.
I have a specialty working with people connected to adoption. I also have extensive experience working with LGBTQ families and individuals. I can provide short term issue-based, non- clinical support when you need answers when it comes to adoption, behavior and family dynamics.
My colleagues and I at Spence-Chapin provide a welcoming and affirming environment. We exclusively serve individuals and families connected to adoption. We offer teletherapy services throughout New York State and have an office in Manhattan.
