Therapy Services

Life is a journey and as a therapist, my goal is to help individuals and families find joy in their journey and achieve balance in their lives.  I work with the entire adoption triad, from birthparents who are considering adoption to adoptive parents who are considering adoption or who have adopted to those who may have been in foster care or who have been adopted. I work with teens, and adults, and parents with children of all ages.

I approach individuals and families with respect and acknowledge everyone is unique and bring their own strengths to the table .  I specialize in the areas of attachment and bonding, healing trauma and trans-racial adoption issues. 

Additionally, I believe parents benefit from having the information necessary to make the best decisions about their family.  I consult with individuals and couples to help them decide if adoption is the right decision for them and also consult with parents about how to arent a child who has been adopted. Adoption consultation may include talking about what adoption looks like, what you can expect during the process, and what are some of the things you can expect after the child is placed in your home. Parenting consultation may include helping parents to understand their own parenting and attachment styles, how those styles might affect an adopted child, what resources your child and family might need and how to obtain those resources, and providing a safe space for parents to be seen and heard.

I work with all individuals, couples, families and children.  I have completed Post-graduate Certificates in Therapy with Adoptive and Foster Families and Attachment-Trauma focused Therapy and am also a Foundational Theraplay Practitioner as well as EMDR trained (working toward certification).
