My Approach to Helping

Transpersonal holistic approach to therapy including CBT, DBT Sandplay, creative expressions incorporated arts in treatment, enneagram work, psychodrama and couples work. I work with children ages 6 on up, teenagers, families, couples, individuals and elderly individuals with supportive families.

My couples treatment intake process starts with a package of 4 sessions so we can really focus and honor the complexity that needs to be addressed in a safe manner where everyone is heard.

More Info About My Practice

My collection of sandtray items is huge and contains over 1000 pieces. Many children but also adults are naturally drawn to that room in my large office space so that they can let their unconscious come out and help guide us on how to obtain inner peace that most my client desire most.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Adoption related issues. The full spectrum from pre-adoption, post-adoption placement for both parents and child, trying to conceive and infertility issues, matching with a firstbirth family and needs help navigating with the legal system. Connecting to other family members later in life. Growing up as a teen searching for who you are as an adopted child with questions. I understand that adoptions are unique and complex

How Psychotherapy Can Help

I also specialize with the elderly populations and the adult children who are trying to support their elderly parents. There is a lot to learn and systems and complex. Resources are important and I have a bunch to help.
