My goal is to help people discover their own ability to achieve change in their lives. Many times I hear people describe themselves as broken or damaged because they are unable to just "get over it". Often, these degrading narratives overwhelm and we can find ourselves experiencing anxiety, depression and even substance abuse issues. The good news is that using modern, evidence-based techniques we can not only resolve the issues that have led you to seek counseling, but make you better equipped in the future to handle life challenges as they arise.

I am a Baby Boomer. I realize I have probably lived three-quarters of my life, during which I have experienced most of the situations one can experience throughout one's life. I still have a positive outlook on the time I have left, and I want all of my generation to feel that their presence on this earth has made a difference. I have counseled families who promised to "never put Mom in a nursing home". I have counseled those who never thought they would end up there. Retirees, divorcees, widows/widowers, empty nesters, mid-life crises, what's left now?, all are welcome. Latter life situations are my specialty.

You envisioned your birth to be a beautiful beginning to your baby's life, and are now wondering how this could have happened. People say "at least you're okay and the baby is safe now." But it's not that comforting. You don't feel safe or confident that your baby is okay and you doubt yourself. Of course hormones are raging, but are all these feelings normal? You may be feeling helpless, scared, or grieving the freedom you had before becoming a parent. You have a constant voice asking you if you really are good enough and reminding you that everyone’s judging you for every decision you make as a parent.

Are you seeking inner peace? Desperate for relief from the troubles surrounding you? Anxious, scared, lonely, sad or confused? It can be hard raising children. Typically after giving birth many moms find themselves in a sea of emotions. In this stage of life that can be labeled “blissful,” it may actually feel overwhelming. Your idea of being a perfect parent is shattered on the floor, along with the heaps of laundry and scattered toys. Your childhood trauma may be getting triggered and it can feel exhausting. You want to be fully present for your family and more importantly yourself. This is the time to reach out and get help.
