I work with adoptive, biological, blended, and foster families. I help parents understand what is happening, in the brain, when children are under stress.

"My ideal client is one who can see a problem for what it is and take the steps needed to correct it. This happens best when there are no serious mental health issues or recreational drugs involved. My clients typically do not come from hospitals or psychiatrists, but may have histories of past inpatient and outpatient services. My clients typically are self-referrals who are working, going to school and have active social lives. Nevertheless many of my clients do not fit this mold and still benefit from seeing me. I strongly believe emotional wellness can be achieved without the sedating influence of medication."
