In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?
Through my studies one of the most glaring areas that needed attention was adoption and foster care, so much of the field was written by researchers and adoptive parents who had no lived experience as an adopted person. While the research is sound, sometimes working with someone who has shared lived experience enhances the therapy process. Staying current with adoptee professionals and researchers gives me both a professional and personal approach to deeply understand the experience of adopted and fostered people. Knowing that adoption is rooted in loss lets us examine what the impact is on an individual and use the most evidence-based treatments to help adopted/fostered people feel well. Recognizing how adoption has made my life different allows me to help individuals take a nuanced look at their needs.

I work with people who have survived traumatic events and experiences. I am trained in specialized trauma treatments- EMDR, TF-CBT and play therapy. I integrate these modalities to help people get the most from therapy, custom tailoring care to meet individual needs. As a trained psychotherapist and adopted person, I specialize in work with adoptive families, adult adopted person and people affected by the foster care system. I've spent most of my career working with children, teens and tweens and their families to support their emotional and psychological needs. As humans our nervous system works hard to keep us safe even in the most difficult circumstances which gives everyone the chance to heal from the painful events they have suffered. When it comes to trauma so many different and bothersome symptoms can come up, depression, anxiety, dissociation, low self-esteem but with support and care the goal of getting back to normal is within reach.
