As an attachment-focused and trauma-informed licensed clinical social worker for more than ten years, I’ve primarily worked in the fields of adoption and foster care. It has been a privilege to provide home study, post placement and clinical services to families as they sought and sustained permanency for children through domestic and international adoption, foster and kinship care. This has increased my understanding around issues including attachment disruption, transracial adoption, behavior management, fertility, loss, grief, identify formation and school issues.


Through talk therapy with individuals, couples and families, I assist clients as they navigate challenges surrounding anxiety, anger management, communication, family dynamics and behavioral modification. I also enjoy leading new parent and kinship support groups and provide parent consults and coaching through Takoma Therapy.

My therapeutic foundation is centered on providing a safe space to explore emotions and presenting issues, and the value of connection and interpersonal relationships. I’ve seen first-hand how trauma, grief and loss can affect the brain and behavior, and how therapy can strengthen resilience and lead to healing.
