Bio

I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Marin and Napa Counties and throughout California via secure teletherapy. I provide coaching sessions remotely using telephone or Zoom video therapy for people outside California. I focus on making strong connections with clients and specialize in changing unwanted patterns with adult ADHD, trauma using EMDR and Parental Identity Discovery™; I coined the term, spearheading the clinical approach to the traditional moniker, Non-Paternal Event (NPE) – a shocking DNA result that reveals unknown/misled/hidden biological parentage.

My passion for the Parental Identity Discovery™/NPE population is personal from my own DNA discovery in 2016 using a 23andMe test and led me to create the Sex, Lies & The Truth podcast, an interview style show dedicated to the stories of people discovering DNA revelations or adoptees searching for biological family and coming to terms with the identity confusion and family dynamics that define the experience. I also publish the blog Finding Family on Psychology Today where I write in depth about being in reunion with new family, the impact on existing family and the personal cost associated with disclosing your DNA revelation.

I am the mom to two ADHD teens and the wife to an ADHD husband so I walk my talk and understand firsthand the struggle and triumphs that go into an ADHD lifestyle.

I am recognized for my empathic and direct style in connecting with clients and am skilled at dealing with difficult issues in trauma and family dynamics. Trained by founder Francine Shapiro, I specialize in EMDR and incorporate it into my work with ADHD and Parental Identity Discovery™, as well as traumas of any sort. It is an efficient and reliable intervention to address grief, feelings of belonging, rejection, worth and self-esteem
