"There comes a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud is more painful than the risk it takes to blossom."
Clinical Psychologist in Charlotte, NC
As an adoptive parent and member of an extended birth family in reunion, I bring my own experiences and sensitivity to the task of providing adoptees, adoptive parents, and birth family members the support they need to tackle the complex issues inherent in adoption. I provide support groups, individual consultations on adoption-related issues, parenting coaching, and ongoing psychotherapy. I work primarily with teens and adults, both adoptees, first family and those parenting adopted children.
As lesbian and parent, I bring my own experiences and sensitivity to the task of providing members of our community the support they need to tackle the challenges of life. I provide couples counseling and ongoing psychotherapy.
I have provided couples and relationship therapy for over 20 years -- I can help you strengthen your bonds or gently loosen them. Together we'll figure out what is pressing on your relationship and how to repair and restore the connections.
