Anais Nin said, "There comes a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud is more painful than the risk it takes to blossom. " Psychotherapy is sometimes the most effective way to begin to blossom. The slow and comfortable establishment of mutual trust will come first as we work to fully understand your unique personality and situation. Together we will explore the the source(s) of pain or struggle in your life & identify practical, workable solutions. You & I will work as a team to ensure you have the support you need as you begin to feel better about yourself and your life.

I am an outpatient therapist in Charlotte, NC specializing in adoption and the treatment of developmental trauma. I am keenly versed in the psychological issues and unique social/emotional challenges these children present. Adoptive families are often frustrated and sometimes frightened by their children's behaviors. Most of the children I treat spent time in an orphanage or in the foster care system. A few were adopted at birth.They learned early in life not to rely on adults as a result of early deprivation. Parenting is a challenge! Psychoeducation and support are the essential tools to create healthy families.
