Do you feel like you've arrived at a place not of your choosing? Do you stand on the threshold of something new and unknown? With so many external forces competing for your attention, it's hard to even take stock of these questions. And that's on top of the more timeless and pressing life transitions associated with adulthood, college, careers, long term relationships, aging, or parenting, to name a few. Failing to address these questions leaves you carrying around little bags of anxiety, depression, resentment, or a general disenchantment with the world promised to you. In this state, it's hard to live deliberately.

Relationships, careers, and retirement dreams cannot thrive when you are hurting. I work with adults, both individuals and couples, to treat grief, anxiety, depression and difficult life transitions (retirement, divorce, relocation, illness, end-of-life issues), as well as communication and sexual functioning. Some clients are anxious to free themselves from nagging issues of the past, while others struggle to discern the best path for their future. I support couples who want to increase intimacy, and I help couples who have already decided to separate to do so as respectfully as possible.
