"Caring for someone with Alzheimer's or dementia can be overwhelming. It is estimated that 40-70% of caregivers suffer from depression and burnout. Emotional and physical challenges can overwhelm even the most capable, leaving them with the inability to care for themselves, their careers, relationships and other things that matter to them. Caregiving is a chronic stress, and I can help. Many people come in looking for help when they feel that their resources and resilience have been obscured by the magnitude of their problems, I will work collaboratively with you to help to re discover a story of possibility and hope."

"Are you tired of starting each day depressed, stressed, or scared? The simple, but difficult act of calling for help, is certain to begin to decrease those negative feelings. In therapy I don't just sit and listen. It is an interactive process of listening, talking and questioning. The purpose is to decrease pain and suffering, increase understanding and promote growth and change. First is a careful examination of your current situation as well as some review of your life and family history. This assessment allows us to see your strengths and vulnerabilities so we can outline a successful strategy."

"Problems can be so isolating, and they thrive in isolation. I see therapy as an antidote to that experience, and as a way of standing up to problems and declaring that they don't get to write the story. I believe you're capable of the strength, resourcefulness, and grace you need to overcome the problems that burden you, and my goal is to ask questions that allow you to access these skills and inner knowledge. Your own wisdom may surprise you - and yet may have been there all along.
