The decision to seek therapy takes courage. I aim to provide a non-judgmental space that allows you to feel comfortable and understood. The best outcome in therapy comes from a trusting and collaborative relationship between the therapist and you. In my work, one of the main outcomes is for you to appreciate your strengths, how you have used your strengths to overcome previous challenges, and how you can use them to face current and future situations.

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.

I work with children, parents, families and individual adults to improve emotional regulation skills, decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression, and become more mindful and present in every day relationships. Individuals in a variety of life stages experience developmental “growing pains” that impact the ability to cope with intense emotional triggers. I will individualize treatment for each client to use the modality that best works for that person’s unique internal system. My goal is to help clients develop a sense of curiosity and compassion for all parts of themselves so that we can work together to heal the pain.

My approach is geared towards helping clients make choices and relate to others in ways that reinforce their feelings of autonomy, fulfillment, and peace. We engage to explore current situations and the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and then develop strategies to help better manage situations or make decisions. Strategies we explore may include short term action plans as well as longer term resilience building to manage ongoing challenges. I will work with clients to develop new ways of interpreting difficulties, understanding others, and communicating that are in line with their own values and hopes.

It can be hard to change our habits and ways of relating with ourselves and with others even when old patterns are causing significant emotional pain. For real change to take place, something beyond motivation and a commitment to change is often needed. What can make a real difference involves finding a receptive person and an accepting environment that fosters a deeper understanding of one's self. I strive to provide such a receptive and safe environment to my clients with hope that they feel listened to, understood, and recognized in their desires to get to know themselves, to connect with others and to feel alive in the world.
