I have years of experience working with adults on issues related to: LGBT+, parenting, adoption , divorce, and medical illness.
Given the current state of the world it is quite normal to be more anxious, discouraged, depressed and hopeless these days. Having someone to listen and support you can make a big difference in dealing with everyday life. Even when nothing external seems to change, I have found that feeling seen and heard is very valuable. My hope is to help you get relief from your pain and explore ways to cope with life’s ongoing challenges. We will discuss new life skills and attempt to find ways to appreciate and enjoy your life.

Do you or your family feel tired, stuck in chaos and ready to throw in the towel? Adoptive families may face unique challenges that require a supportive professional who has personal and professional knowledge of attachment adaptations, trauma responses, anxiety, grief, and the adoption circle. As a parent of three, all adopted transracially, I have faced both the joy and struggle of parenting. When working with you, I will bring my personal and professional experience using a sensitive, non-judgmental approach as I help you find renewed hope and joy for yourself and your family.

Have you ever wondered about your adoption story? Has there ever been doubt, fear, anger, pain or confusion when it comes up? What’s it been like for you to process your personal experience of birth family, loss, grief, race, identity, or even those seemingly benign curiosities about your narrative that come up from time to time? For parents, of course you want to help your children as they embark on that path. This can often feel uncertain or overwhelming, with so many subtle nuances that feel way too complicated to handle without appropriate support.

Speciality: Adoption , Anxiety, Relational trauma, Racial trauma, EMDR trained, AAPI identified therapist.
Is “people pleasing” a way you have learned how to avoid conflict at work & in your relationships? Are relationships and intimacy with others overwhelming at times in part out of fear of “rejection” and/or “abandonment”? Is the negative core belief “I'm not good enough” a theme that frequently shows up in your life & is a source of pain? Are you seeking to understand and cultivate a more nurturing relationship with your body, body image, and relationship with food? Are you wanting to explore the impact of your adoption experience including the trauma of separation & loss inherent in adoption ? Does self doubt impair decision-making?
