I specialize in helping families and individuals process how adoption has impacted their lives. I work with all individuals in the adoption constellation (adoptee, adopted parent, and birth parents). I love adoption and would love the opportunity to work with you or someone you know that needs post ­placement services. I have 20 years experience in helping families in adoption. I am also available to help individuals and couples process their fertility issues and/or grieve miscarriage loss. I am a certified Trained Adoption Competent therapist.

I received my Master’s in Social Work from the University of Nebraska and am a Licensed Independent Mental Health Practitioner. I am also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker trained in Trauma¬≠ Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have a certification in Parent Child Interactive Therapy to help parents build a stronger relationship with their child (ages 3-¬≠8) and improve discipline techniques.

Grief is is a multifaceted response to any loss. It has physical, emotional, cognitive and behavioral results in our lives. Talking about your loss and learning tools to handle your anxiety can be beneficial. This is another area that I specialize in at Woodhaven Counseling. Grief is something we all will have to go through in our lives and we all must experience it in our own way, but we do not have to do it alone. I hope this gives you insight into my clinical experiences and I offer you the opportunity to speak with me before scheduling an appointment if needed.
