Hello – If you have come to this page seeking a therapist, my promise to each of my clients is I see you and I will reflect the preciousness within you without judgement.
If you are ready to make real change in your life. If you are ready to communicate your needs in an authentic way. If you are ready to leave disconnection behind and find connection with yourself and your loved ones. I am the right Therapist for you.
I am an Adoption Competent therapist working with all members of the Adoption Constellation (adoptee, adoptive parent, birth parent and family members), and their supporters. I am a Registered Play Therapist. I am a Trust Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI) Practitioner and I am trained in Level I Theraplay. I have had over 20 years of working with women, men and children who have been affected by sexual abuse.
I am a Nevada MFT / CPC Board approved supervisor and a Registered Play Therapy Supervisor offering supervision toward full licensure and Registered Play Therapist certification.
My connection to adoption is that I am a “baby-scoop” era adoptee and an advocate for adoptee rights. For the past 7 years, I have worked exclusively with children in the foster care system, who are in the process of adoption, and who have been adopted. I am the co-facilitator of the Las Vegas Adoptees Connect group
On my blog, my hope is to share my thoughts, ideas, experiences and some “how tos” on living life with courage and how it feels to be adopted. I am an expert on being adopted. I have been doing it my whole life. I have a unique perspective and, I understand the clinical aspects of adoption trauma and I work with children who are in the process of being adopted.
I also am a public speaker and available to speak on adoption, living a life that feels fulfilling, LDS topics, Women and Family themes, and recovery from sexual, emotional and physical abuse.
