I enjoy working with new parents through pregnancy, postpartum and beyond. While a new baby is something to be celebrated, the adjustment to parenthood, changes in family dynamics, social isolation and hormonal factors can be overwhelming. I work to help normalize your experience and develop strategies to receive the care you deserve.
Children who have experienced trauma or disrupted attachment may have unique vulnerabilities or behavioral challenges. I work to support families with understanding and responding to their child's needs through a trauma-informed lens. I have completed certification training on Family Therapy for Foster and Adoption, provided by PSU and DHS.
As the parent of a transgender child, am aware of the unique needs that present themselves to those who are adjusting to a family member's transition. It is important for the support people to have access to their own supports to be able to process emotions, fears, values and beliefs. I provide a safe place to process your own transition through a family member's transition.
I am trained in EMDR therapy, which is shown to be very effective in developing skills to regulate emotions and nervous system responses, challenge negative beliefs about ourselves, and be able to experience present safety. I work with those who have experienced single event trauma, as well as trauma related to violence, childhood abuse, attachment injury, and others.
