Adoption work is a specialty of mine.
Your teen’s grades are terrible and she isolates in her room, your adopted child struggles to have any healthy relationships or you are drowning in work and family and can’t find a moment to breathe? I get it! Together we will begin the healing process. I listen, you vent, we laugh and there are tears. Slowly the weight feels less heavy and, one step at a time, hope and relief turn into peace and joy . It's scary, but it's worth it! I CAN help.

Very few adults, let alone children or teenagers, jump at the chance to start seeing a therapist. Difficult circumstances might have brought you to this point: communication problems with family members, frequent arguments, feeling stressed out, or having intense feelings of depression and anxiety. I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment for my clients. My approach is personal, practical, non judgmental. I work in a variety of ways, depending on your or your child's needs and preference, using cognitive behavioral therapy, art therapy, and play therapy.

There are many reasons people seek support, and none of us is immune to the stress of coping with life's challenges. Clinicians at The Village Wellness Center work with children, teens and adults who seek therapy for issues such as stress-management, coping with difficult emotions (depression/anxiety/anger), parenting strategies, relationship issues and healing from trauma and loss. Together we assess the root causes of problems and collaborate to develop a treatment approach. Clinicians integrate evidence-based techniques such as cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and play therapy/expressive arts approaches (as appropriate).

One of the key beliefs that I hold regarding therapy is that clients generally know what is best for them. Rather than telling clients what to do, I help explore options, loosen possiblities, examine potential consequences and empower clients to make decisions that will ultimately lead to healthy relationships. This is done in a supportive, respectful and collaborative environement.

I am a clinical psychologist with over 20 years of experience in private practice. I have helped many individuals to develop more peaceful lives, working through feelings of depression, anxiety and relationship struggles. I love working with parents, especially because their growth can have such a positive impact on their children. I have a special interest in working with caregivers of special needs children. This passion developed after facing the challenge of parenting my own special needs child. During COVID-19 I will discount rates to make therapy affordable to parents who have medically fragile or behaviorally challenged kids.

I provide therapy for children/teens and adults who are looking for help and support to successfully handle life's challenges. Because my practice includes working with children, I offer strong support for parents and families who are affected by what a child is experiencing. My approach is primarily cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused, meaning that we will look at the interplay among thoughts, feelings and behaviors to explore how negative thought patterns influence behavior and work to change those patterns to provide emotional relief. I help clients develop real-life skills and coping strategies that can last a lifetime.

"Taking that first and often most difficult step of getting help can be a turning point in a person's life. I believe that I can help people make significant changes in their lives by uncovering whatever's been holding them back and developing new tools to move forward. I also believe myself to be compassionate, easy to talk to, and effective in enabling people to understand themselves in a way which can be empowering.

Need help changing your life? I am the type of therapist for those individuals that don't have tons of time to figure out their past life issues. Through assessments, I am able to develop and implement a future focused plan with clear goals and an estimated timeframe for achievement. I am more of a non-traditional therapist & most of my clients have tried and failed at more traditional clinical therapy. My clients are usually referred by word of mouth as a last resort in hopes to establish major life change.

Over 30 years of experience as a social worker has taught me that it takes a lot of courage to ask for help. I have great respect for anyone who has that courage. Most of us feel we can fix things ourselves and most of the time we probably can, but sometimes we feel completely overwhelmed by circumstances beyond our control. At such times, the expertise of a trained therapist can help us to find the strength to work through the issues that prevent us from taking the actions necessary to create fresh options and opportunities in our lives. I feel so lucky to be doing a job I love so much. I care deeply about helping people move beyond their perceived limitations to live a life that is deeply fulfilling and joyful.

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.
