I specialize in adoption and attachment; pregnancy and pregnancy loss; and grief and trauma.
Transitions are a part of life, and sometimes they can be challenging. We all sometimes struggle, and at times need some help to get where from where we are to where we want to be. Transitions can range from normal family changes involving marriage, parenting, and children moving out, to times of trauma, loss and grief. I utilize a wellness-focused approach, taking into account the client's own spiritual beliefs and values. I believe that most us already know the way, and sometimes just need a little help getting back on the path. I help you focus on how to bring you back into balance and connection with others.

I have over eight years of experience working with adolescents, young adults, and families struggling with Depression and Anxiety, Addiction, Adoption and Attachment, Trauma, Shame and Vulnerability.
I specialize in helping adolescents and adults in finding their own inner purpose, strength, and wisdom. Often, this requires peeling back the layers of old habits, wounds, and ways of being in the world that are resulting in distress, anxiety, depression, and feelings of dissatisfaction. By helping to heal the old wounds, there is more space to experience joy and contentment while also discovering what matters the most to you. One on one sessions can take a variety of forms including more traditional talk therapy; using different art mediums; or getting out of the office for a walk.

The decision to enter into a counseling relationship can be a heroic step in your life journey. Perhaps you are having difficulty managing your mood, recently suffered a loss, or are negatively impacted by deeply held beliefs. More specific help may be desired in addressing such things as relationship issues, parenting struggles, life transitions, attaining life goals, grief, trauma, depression, anxiety, building meaning in your life, or adoption issues. The counseling services that I offer can provide you with insights into behavior and thought patterns that no longer serve you. Our work together can propel insight into action.

I have worked with a variety of issues such as parenting, child-parent relationships, challenges in split/blended/mix families, and foster/ adoption .
I regard people as having their own inherent strengths and resilience which they can bring to bear on difficult challenges. A strong therapeutic relationship marked by trust, understanding and non-judgement provides the conditions in which strengths are realized, and healing and growth occurs. I pay special attention to my client’s values and goals and work to keep myself out of the way when it comes to what is important to you and/or your family. My work emphasizes relationships - how relationships have or are currently impacting our interactions with the world, sense of self, and mental/emotional health.

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.
