My clients are typically women experiencing stress and burnout or adoptees and their adoptive or birth families.
Adoption is a life-long process that can create many challenges for adoptees. I “get it” on a level most therapists can’t because as an adoptee myself, I’ve also experienced those losses and the questions that come with them.
I am in reunion and have been since I was 17.
My Background and Approach
I received my Bachelors in Social Work from Northwestern Oklahoma State University and my Masters in Social Work from Indiana Wesleyan University. I have been a professional social worker since 2005.
I am trained in Brainspotting, TBRI, and Theraplay.
I build deep relationships with my clients and ensure each client feels heard and seen.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
As a late discovery adoptee, I feel it is very important to help support adoptive families to care for their children in ways that honor their unique history. I care deeply about doing post-adoption care well. I also spend time supporting adoption and child welfare reform efforts and feel this is necessary to ensure that birth families are not unnecessarily separated.
