Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I have been working primarily with children and families. I have specialized training and experience in working with the adoption triangle (birth parents, adoptive parents and children). I use a family therapy approach in most cases. I also use a love-based parenting program to help parents manage behavioral issues with children of all ages. I also have education and experience in working with victims of trauma using Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have experience working with gay and lesbian couples.
