There are several issues in which I have a special interest in, such as, adoption -related issues, couple concerns, parenting concerns and issues related to trauma.
I believe people are relational-beings, meaning, we develop and live our lives in relationships with others. When these relationships become distressed, it can lead to a multitude of feelings, such as depression, stress, anxiety and an overall feeling of uneasiness. These are the times when a person may need some guidance and help accessing their personal resources to find more balance in those relationships and in life in general.

I enjoy working with children, teens, adults and families while specializing in infertility, pregnancy counseling, adoption issues, parent training, anxiety, depression, and behavioral challenges.
It would be hard to argue that our lives haven't been a lot more complicated over the last few years. Whether you are a child or teen dealing with peer pressure or the stressors at school, a stay at home parent trying to manage everyone's busy schedules, a working professional balancing family life and the stress a job can bring, a single or divorced parent struggling to get through each day, a young adult looking for direction in life, or part of a family trying to raise your kids in this increasingly complex world, I have extensive experience in all of these areas.

You’re surrounded by people yet you are unsure whether you’re ok. Those around you seem to think so but you feel that at any moment the right trigger could burst you into tears. You feel shame, anger, frustration, and even hopelessness at times. These are all feelings we’ve felt at one time or another throughout our lives. They are all part of the human experience. However, many of us struggle to move on from these feelings and feel weighed down by our past experiences or our current circumstances. We can feel like we’ve lost control of our own lives.
