I provide Individual & Couples Counseling for those who are eager to improve their lives by deepening self-understanding. Long-lasting changes are difficult if we ignore the root issue, which can include previous trauma or neglect, challenging relationships with caregivers, negative thought forms, generational patterns, etc. While it is important to explore the root of the issue, it is also important to continue building skills to achieve the goals you set in our work together. In this way I provide non-judgmental support and challenge at a pace that works for you.
Some of the issues I work with include: anxiety, depression, trauma, grief/loss, addiction, adjustment to life stressors, self-esteem, and identity (eg. transracially adopted people, immigrants, sex/gender ). My special interest is working with parents, couples, and people touched by adoption.
Additionally, I offer Parent Coaching & Parenting Consultations to help make parenting easier and more enjoyable. I foster mindful parenting, not "right/wrong" parenting.
For clinicians in training or new to the field, I offer Clinical Supervision. My focus is developing systemic, strengths-based, and multicultural thinking. In supervision, I often demonstrate different modalities to add to your available tools.
