I am a therapist with over 20 years of experience. My approach is eclectic. Over the years I have had the chance to work with and study numerous therapeutic models. I provide emotional support, practical skills, and tools to improve your daily life. I know that one size does not fit all and that each person is unique. I want you to feel comfortable so you can express the issues that brought either you or your family to therapy. You will leave a session feeling heard and supported with some tools and insights to face the world with more confidence.

I have a specialty working with people connected to adoption. I understand the nuances of adoption for birth parents, adoptive parents, and adoptees. I also have extensive experience working with LGBTQ families and individuals.

My colleagues and I at Spence-Chapin provide a welcoming and affirming environment for everyone. Together we are committed to serving the needs of you and your family.
