Profession: Marriage and Family Therapist
Services: Psychotherapy/Counseling
Practice Description: Specializing in attachment, trauma and the family system, my treatment of children, adolescents and adults reflects over 25 years of clinical experience in mental health, child welfare and residential treatment centers. I strive to create a warm, supportive therapeutic environment where you feel heard and understood. I believe the safety of the therapeutic relationship allows you to engage in meaningful exploration of the issues that are impacting your well-being. Therapy is a collaborative process and my role is to empower you to achieve your goals. I have experience helping clients with concerns related to parenting, grief/loss, trauma, adoption and .

I specialize in the treatment of children, adolescents and adults traumatized by abuse, neglect, attachment disruptions and/or grief/loss. Children and youth exposed to trauma often exhibit disabling behavioral patterns affecting attention, socialization, self-esteem, and affect modulation. Parenting children and youth with histories of complex relational trauma related to attachment disruptions or impairments, neglect, grief/loss, adoption, foster care, domestic violence and abuse can make parents feel overwhelmed or ineffective. Learning effective therapeutic parenting strategies to strengthen the primary attachment relationships within the family system is critical in order to empower parents to be the healing mechanism for their child.
