How many therapists did your parents have you see as a kid? Has anybody in your life commented on your " adoption issues"? How many times a day do you ask yourself where and how do I fit in? Maybe the mindset you used to help yourself survive childhood is now hindering your growth in adulthood. Why aren't there more therapists who are adoptees? These are some of many questions and issues I hope that we can work on together. I aspire, because I am an adoptee, to have you spend less time explaining what adoption was, and more time working on current issues.

I believe all clients hold the key to their own success and can be guided to that end in a safe, trusting, honest environment. Building relationship and skills for growth, understanding and healing are among my goals in therapy. My personal journey through adoption , trauma, abuse, raising a child with mental health concerns, spiritual enlightenment, natural mental health, divorce, and remarriage have become the gifts I share though therapy. I believe the keys essential to reaching any goal lies within each of us believing in ourselves and knowing that someone also believes in us.

I am trauma-informed, attachment-oriented, and knowledgable about adoption .
It can be hard to know whether your child's struggles are because of poor organizational skills, issues with attention, a learning disability, or mood/anxiety difficulties. This is where I come in: giving you an accurate and nuanced understanding of what is going on and how to treat it. I provide comprehensive and individualized evaluation to help you understand your child's strengths and weaknesses, get to the "why" underneath, and sort out what is typical and what is cause for concern. As a former classroom teacher, I make practical recommendations that translate into your child being more academically successful immediately.

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 anxious, discouraged, depressed and hopeless. 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 focus 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.

I know no one who is "accidentally" in counseling or therapy. Thus, this step and this choice is often quite difficult. I embrace building rapport with my clients in a way that allows us to engage in a collaboration of unique, innovative and effective techniques to overcome the challenges, problems and/or difficulties they are facing, whether in their social, personal, or business life. I take pride in listening to my clients and trying to provide them thoughtful tools they can use long after our sessions are complete.

Marriage and Family Therapists view problems in the framework of how people interact or communicate with each other. I see each client as a unique individual embarking on a journey to explore alternatives choices in their current life. I don't believe people are "broken" or need to be "fixed." I do believe everyone has a right to be heard and that you are the expert in your own lived experiences. Negative events can lead to unexpected plot twists that cause emotional distress, but every human struggle makes your story more authentic. Therapy can help you find new beginnings and explore endings to achieve personal satisfaction.

I provide a warm and welcoming space for you to explore your own relationships, thoughts, emotions, and beliefs to reach your best self. This is a space to be heard, understood, and to find healing.

Adoption Therapists
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
