Be it dealing with interpersonal relationship concerns, parenting, addiction, abuse, adoption , attachment, trauma, emerging from domestic violence, sexual assault healing, or troubles associated with illness or loss.
My primary goal is to help people who feel stuck, either in unproductive communication patterns or conflicts that threaten their most important relationships. I place great value on being a compassionate, non-judgmental, responsive collaborator, uncovering clients' strengths, unrecognized needs, new or under-utilized talents and problem solving abilities. I find that this approach helps most clients come "unstuck" and reach their goals in a gentle and supportive process. I use Brainspotting™ with clients for resolving traumatic experiences, PTSD, attachment and anxiety. I also use trauma-sensitive HeartMath™ tools.

I help individuals and families adapt to major life-altering events related to loss, separation, adoption , pregnancy, and relationship conflict.
I strive to have clients feel safe and accepted while exploring the difficult issues that bring them to my office. I help some people pursue a deeper understanding of the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that interfere with their living a full and vibrant life. With others we develop strategies designed to address particular issues or change specific challenging behaviors. Much of my work explores connections between early life experiences and current functioning. Specific issues such as anxiety, trauma, or loss have unique strategies that are effective and they are introduced as needed.

Additional certifications in life coaching, memoir writing, and international adoption add rich dimensions to my conversational style and seasoned clinical skills.
Being a therapist is a true privilege. In the relaxed and safe atmosphere of my office , clients feel free to explore their deepest feelings, dreams, and real lifechallenges. Together, in a spirit of honesty,we laugh,we cry and we problem solve. Most of us want things to change, but we often don't want to change anything. To choose trust not fear, we must first explore the past, not to linger there, but to explain some of our personal choices and current challenges with relationship. With the strength of new awareness and insight, clients move forward in a most positive way.

I specialize in working with adopted children and children who are in the foster care system. Treatment focuses on Attachment Theory and addresses trauma, abuse, loss, abandonment, and grief. This is a family centered approach and actively involves the child’s attachment figure(s) in treatment. I work with adolescents who are struggling with peers relationships, conflict with parents, transition issues, anxiety, stress, depression, self worth and self-esteem challenges. I also work with adults who are struggling with mood disorders, relationship difficulties, employment stress, and parenting issues.

I'm currently full and not taking new clients. Couples, families, individuals. I hope to help couples regain the closeness that you felt when you were first together. I hope to help families to resolve conflict and find new ways to be together in a way that brings the family closer together. I hope to help adults to resolve personal difficulties and to work through the barriers that keep you from having the kind of life that you want. I also hope to help children in foster care and adoptive homes be able to feel accepted and welcome parts of their new families.

I believe that men are faced with conflicting expectations in our society that can lead them to feel frustrated, misunderstood and isolated. They are expected to be strong yet gentle, fierce yet sensitive, protective but not overbearing. Sometimes men get stuck in one role and cannot transition to another as the situation changes. My goal is to coach you on developing new strategies for addressing these issues and to help you break destructive patterns. While I focus on men's issues, all of my experience and techniques work with people in all walks of life and lifestyles.

I have worked as a personal counselor since 1986 and as a licensed clinical social worker since 2004. I am a solution-focused therapist who listens deeply to my clients, then engages each in a true two-way conversation. Whether I'm seeing adults, older adolescents, or couples, I treat my clients respectfully. We focus on the issue at hand, work to understand the history and causes behind it, then together implement steps to bring change quickly. I don't draw out therapy. Most of my clients see me for six to eight weekly sessions, moving to less and less frequent sessions as their confidence and life satisfaction increase.

I love my work. You may want a quiet, protected space where you can think out loud - with the freedom to follow your thoughts to their own (surprising?) conclusions. Or you may want a more active interaction, a back-and-forth exchange to wrestle with difficult emotions and come out the other side feeling more settled and self-directed in your life. My first job is to meet you wherever you are - wanting help with an immediate crisis, or wishing to explore a past experience that continues to haunt you.

I am passionate about the work that I do and realize that reaching out and asking for help can be one of the most challenging aspects of starting the therapy process. We all have strengths, yet sometimes we need guidance to identify what they are and how they help us to move through difficult challenges we face. I draw upon several theoretical frameworks which include trauma-informed care, strength-based, solution-focused, narrative therapy, and systems practices. However, I prefer to relate on a human level and focus on building meaningful relationships where true compassion and understanding can lead to meaningful transformations.

They Say "It takes a Village" Do you ever worry that you're just not getting through to your child? Does it seem like no matter what you try, nothing seems to work? Some families don't have a "village" to help them with all the different struggles kids face today. I have worked in many different settings; hospitals, group homes, schools, residential treatment centers, and clinical outpatient offices. I have helped lots of children of all age ranges and their families with similar situations that you're probably facing.

Whether I am with a child, teen, adult, couple or family, I strive to earn my clients' trust with honesty, warmth and humor; a secure and close therapeutic relationship allows for the most healing and progress. A lot of psychological distress occurs when people feel cut off from or ashamed of some of their feelings. I help clients access and feel compassion about previously disavowed feelings and parts of themselves, allowing for better self-care and self-regulation, and greater closeness with loved ones.

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.
