Full Profile:

Contact me for: Help for all members of birth or adoptive families at any stage of life—and no matter how, when or where your adoption took place—to navigate open adoption relationships, managing challenges at school, and finding the most useful ways to talk about adoption with children. I also work with adopted individuals and families about how adoption affects identity formation and what that means as children grow.

I have worked in the field of adoption for over 30 years and have post-graduate training in therapy with adoptive and foster families. I am an adoptive mom in a transracial family raising children with a range of special needs across three generations. I understand first hand both the joys and challenges adoption brings to a family. I have an office at The Cradle in Evanston, a satellite office in Oak Park and work with families via phone and Skype.
