Welcome! I'm so glad you're here. I have over 20 years of experience working with individuals and families. I've had extensive training in infant and early childhood mental health, childhood trauma, adoption, developmental disabilities, parenting and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.
INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY THERAPY
Children communicate through their behavior. I'm here to help you make sense of what your children are trying to express and teach strategies that will help them develop positive coping skills and more control over their emotions. My work with children is play based and relationship focused. My style is warm, engaging and playful.
If you are pregnant or currently parenting and crave some time for yourself, this is also a safe place for you to come and work through some of the challenges that life has thrown your way. Parenting is hard, especially when you have children with challenging behaviors or had a difficult childhood yourself. I will walk alongside you during your parenting journey, You don't have to go through it alone.
CIRCLES OF HOPE
A Circle of Hope is a safe, compassionate space for you to connect with other moms on a similar journey. It's where you can express your feelings with vulnerability to others who “get it” and know that you will be supported. It's a place to feel grounded and rejuvenated, a balm to your weary soul. You will leave a little lighter, knowing you are not alone. Two circles will be offered:
1. Foster/Adoptive Moms
2. Moms of children with disabilities or challenging behaviors
