My passion is to work with clients who have become overwhelmed with the pressures of life and need a compassionate and non critical perspective to help them navigate the often difficult terrain of life. While motivation is helpful I am completely comfortable with helping clients explore their own reluctance in facing the painful realities of their life. I am particularly drawn to clients who have experienced trauma, rejection, abandonment, and/or abuse. My considerable life, parenting, and professional experience has truly endeared me to clients who are simply overwhelmed and need gentle guidance to find their way.

Your life is ever changing and switching gears is not always easy. Your new reality require adjustments and sometimes we struggle with making them. Many times, they happen without notice and well before you are ready. You can feel lost, powerless, or stuck. It might feel like you are barely treading water. COVID-19 definitely changed our lives. It takes courage to change. Changing is scary and responsibility feels overwhelming, but it does not have to be. Many times, you could work through those struggles if you just had someone to talk them out with. Someone who would guide you and help you to adjust as you forge your new path.
