Specializing in Early Childhood Trauma, Attachment, LGBTQ
And Fost/Adopt Issues. Avail Everyday @ Home or Office
Are you tired of working with therapists that "don't get it", have office hours when you work, don't understand how hard it can be to get your children/family to therapy?

I have been where you are. I have raised 2 special needs children (one fost/adopt with early childhood trauma) and understand the frustrations of trying to get help for your family when you are in a chaotic crisis.
In my mission to help, advocate and get resources for my children, I went back to school to become a marriage and family therapist. I want to help you like others helped me. I understand being in the trenches and won't ask you to do anything I wouldn't do.

I am available from 7am to 7pm - 7 days a week. You can come into the office or I can come into your home. I do not penalize you if you intended to come in for an office visit and your child has a melt down and you cannot come in. Instead I can offer you telephone therapy and try to help you out of your crisis. I offer "support packages" that instead of paying per session you can pay once a month and you save hundreds of dollars in services.

I have more than 15 years of personal experience working with families (including mine) that are struggling with fost-adopt, early childhood trauma, attachment disorder, reactive attachment disorder, special needs, behavioral issues, emotional issues and general family issues. I also work with transgender and gender expansive youth.
