Hi! I'm a child & family therapist, adoption specialist, parent coach, and educator. I have a private counseling practice in Portland, Oregon, where I spend lots of time on the floor doing play therapy,  listening and teaching in parent support groups, and many phone consults with teachers & other health providers talking adoption themes, trauma-savvy behavior change, and decoding attachment. I've worked with kids in state foster care as a therapist, advocate, and foster parent trainer, and with many families adopting internationally. I serve the Oregon Association for Play Therapy hosting workshops for therapists, and am a community educator on post-partum & post-adoption adjustment, attachment & bonding, and maternal mental health. I love working directly with families, as well as leading workshops with community non-profits on adoption support + education. I previously worked with the Oregon Post-Adoption Resource Center, providing crisis support, phone counseling, and building resources to enhance access to trauma-savvy mental health care. My next venture includes expanding online adoption support to families in rural areas. What's next for you? Planning to adopt? Growing your support network? I'd love to hear!
