"As your therapist I work to create a safe and trusting relationship with you and for you. Working on what matters most to you will require all the support and connection we can develop. It is through the trust and safety we build, that you will be able to honestly explore your life and create the change important to you.


Holding a master’s degree from Touro University Worldwide in Marriage and Family Therapy, along with an individualized master’s degree from Goddard College in Adoption Studies, I have well over a decade of experience in working with individuals and families through some of life’s most challenging issues. As an adoption specialist and former director of a foster and adoption agency, I am well versed in trauma, attachment, relinquishment, reunification, searching, relationships, and parenting adopted and foster children. Though my background is in the adoption arena, I have a breadth of experience in working with many other life circumstances including depression, anxiety,

couples, career, sexuality, family issues and more.


I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist 136098; supervised by Sari Rose Barron, MFC 87400. Trained in many different techniques including Brainspotting, I first learn about you and your goals, then we come up with a plan on how to assist you in moving toward them. I am looking forward to being a part of your journey."
