***Thank you for visiting my website.  I am accepting a limited number of adult clients. Sessions will be limited to telehealth.***   

Do you feel like you are stuck in the past?  Are you having difficulty with current life transitions and feeling discouraged? Sometimes taking the first step to ask for help is the scariest. Therapy is a safe venue to talk about these pressures and process your feelings. Taking care of your mental health during these trying times will help you manage all that is going on around you. Let me help you with your journey of healing and help you move forward in your life. My focus of practice for adults includes:

  • childhood trauma (physical, emotional, sexual)

  • Adults Molested as Children (AMAC)

  • women's issues

  • stress

  • life transitions

My practice also includes working with Infants, toddlers and their caregivers.  While the life of an infant or toddler should be filled with carefree and loving experiences, there are times when some infants and toddlers experience scary and sudden changes or events such as:

  • child abuse and/or neglect

  • witnessing violence in the home or community

  • sudden separation from a primary caretaker or sibling (death, deployment, imprisonment)

  • divorce

  • serious medical illness (to the infant or toddler or close family member)


Many adults assume that the infant or toddler is too young to know what is going on and and he/she will soon "forget about it" but what actually happens is that the infant or toddler experiences fear and confusion.  If this fear and confusion continues and does not get addressed,  the infant or toddler's development may be negatively impacted.  Using an intervention called Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) at this life stage can have a tremendous positive impact.  By involving the caretaker in therapy, the infant/toddler can feel secure once again and achieve developmental milestones in a timely manner.  The intervention can change the trajectory of that infant or toddler's life despite the negative events that occurred in the past.  Please click "HERE" for more detailed information. on Child Parent Psychotherapy. 

If you are ready to explore therapy for yourself or your infant/toddler, I encourage you to contact me for an appointment.
