My areas of specialty include mindfulness, the world of adoption for all members of the adoption triad, issues that can arise from being on the autism spectrum, struggles for children experiencing parents divorcing, couples therapy, inflexible-explosive behaviors, and anxiety.
In my therapy practice the focus is on supporting healthy emotional and psychological development. Whatever the age, I believe that we do well when we can. My goal is to celebrate one's strengths and help address blocks to becoming one's best self. That means meeting each client with unconditional positive regard while addressing presenting, and possibly underlying, needs.

Since Adoption is my primary focus, I work with all people in the adoption triad, meaning original parents, adoptive parents, and adopted children, teens and adults.
I work with people who want to improve themselves, their relationships and their self image. These are people seeking a sounding board, a safe confidential place to talk, and extensive knowledge and experience dealing with their issues. My work focuses on where the client is now, and where they want to go, with no pre-conceived notions. We look at past experiences together and how they impact the present. For parents, I offer coaching and suggestions for managing challenging behaviors, and understanding the impact of early childhood trauma of behavior. With younger children, I encourage learning about expression of feelings.

My personal interest focuses on anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship difficulties, and adoption .
Psychotherapy has always been for those who are ready to experience healing. Along with alleviating symptoms, my approach is most effective for individuals who are seeking a deeper understanding of underlying causes and who strive for personal growth. Together, we explore the root of current feelings that led things astray. We can gain insight into self-awareness, understand our behavioral patterns, build resilience, and develop better coping mechanisms. Doing so empowers us to reach emotional maturity and enable more fulfilling relationships.
