About

Have you been diagnosed with ADHD, anxiety, or a mood disorder? Do you feel everything in the world, both joys and sorrows, deeply? Are life transitions or even everyday life stresses difficult for you? Are you sensitive or feel that others don't "get" you? If so, I can help you. My clients are often smart, skilled, and talented, but lack the energy, focus, drive, or executive functioning skills (like planning and organization) to reach their full potential. Not realizing their potential--or all of the potentials in all areas--creates great pain itself.
Gifted and highly sensitive persons are often challenged by trying to manifest their gifts Together, we can explore your gifts and how you can manifest them in everyday life, as well as how to handle and express the depths of your thoughts and feelings in this world.
My 22+ years of university teaching has made me especially interested in working with college students and young adults, who stand at the brink of an adulthood that often seems overwhelming and for while they feel ill-prepared. Helping them discover the joys of adulthood is such a rewarding experience!
