Are you feeling overwhelmed or stuck as you navigate a major life change? You're not alone. Life transitions come in many forms; positive or unwelcome, anticipated or unexpected. These changes can challenge your ability to cope, whether you are going through a career change, grieving a loved one, recovering from traumatic brain injury, considering retirement, returning to work after a stroke, or are helping a loved one with dementia. The focus of my practice is to help clients find comfort in moments of change and reinvention, and to develop coping methods for the rest of the journey.

All emotions have a job - to bring something to our attention, to give us information about our world, sometimes to give us the physical energy to take action. I see my role as a therapist would be to help you better understand yourself, and when it fits to teach you tools and skills so that you can be effective in your life. I can be a guide and an ally through many challenges - these include depression and anxiety, eating disorders, trauma, caregiving, life-threatening illnesses, grief and loss. Whatever emotion or situation led you to seek help, you can use it to heal your life.

Welcome! My 20-year history working in hospital, hospice, and home-based medical teams has helped me create a private practice for adults struggling with generalized anxiety, changes in health status, caregiver stress, aging, cancer impact, work-life balance, and unexpected life transitions; including COVID-19's impact to overall wellbeing. I additionally work with new mothers that may be experiencing anxiety and depression. Family caregiving and entrance into motherhood can create anxiety and stressors that reduce our ability to care for ourselves and others. If you find this to be true in your life, I would be honored to help.

At various stages in our lives, all of us find ourselves feeling lost and disconnected from what has previously given us meaning, joy, and satisfaction. There are many reasons a person may feel lost and confused on their journey in life. Traumatic events can contribute to our inability to achieve happiness and self-fulfillment. These deeply painful experiences can lead to self-destructive behaviors that further suffering and perpetuate feelings of sadness and hopelessness, while creating challenges feeling content and fulfilled in our daily life.

Alzheimer's Therapists
A progressive neurodegenerative disease, Alzheimers Disease slowly destroys an individual's memory, judgment, cognition and eventually ability to function. It represents an enormous burden on victims of the disease and their family alike.

Alzheimer's is characterized by memory loss, language deterioration, impaired ability to mentally manipulate visual information, poor judgment, confusion, restlessness, and mood swings.

Alzheimer's usually begins after age 65, but its onset may occur as early as age 40, appearing first as memory decline and, over several years, destroying cognition, personality, and ability to function. Confusion and restlessness may also occur. The early symptoms of AD, which include forgetfulness and loss of concentration, can be missed easily because they resemble signs of natural aging.

If you're looking for help for a friend or mother or father with alzheimer's in San Luis Obispo or for a San Luis Obispo alzheimer's therapist, these professionals provide alzheimer's help, alzheimer's therapy, alzheimer's counseling and alzheimer's treatment.
