About My Clients

Are you adopted? Have you been through the Foster Care system? Do you struggle with attachment and relationships with others? I work with clients with depression, anxiety, adoption triad concerns, and trauma related issues. Change can be hard. Having the courage to reach out and discuss your inner pain and anxiety is the first step. I want to help you work through your past painful experiences.

My Background and Approach

I believe each person has their own pace, and am willing to find therapies and strategies that work for you. My approach is: open minded, trauma based, cognitive, and holistic.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I started my career in psychology and counseling when I experienced a suicide in my family. It gave me the courage to make changes for myself, and help people around me who were also suffering grief, loss, and depression. I'm an advocate of mental health issues, a proud adoptee, and a supporter of the arts. I am also a Level 2 reiki practitioner.
