“I will help you see the joy in the present and find hope for the future.”

My Personal Journey


“Through my own personal and professional journey, I bring a unique perspective to my therapy practice. My husband and I experienced infertility before we adopted two wonderful children via domestic newborn adoption. Years later, we found ourselves welcoming our most unexpected biological child into our family. Having a multi-racial, multi-cultural family that includes biological and adopted children, I can relate to both the joys and challenges all of those factors bring.”

Adoption can be quite a challenging process. I will advise you on what to expect and help you navigate though various issues that can occur both pre- and post-adoption, including but not limited to open adoption relationships, trauma, and multicultural families.

Infertility Counseling


I will use my professional expertise and personal experience to help you deal with the stressors and emotions, whether you are currently going through infertility treatments, or have completed them with or without success.
