Announcement icon I'm very comfortable helping you via Skype or phone counseling. I'm a great listener and am told that I have a calming effect on clients.
I understand that you are looking for a therapist because you are in need of support. First, please give yourself credit for taking this step! I specialize in solution-focused consultations. I will work with you to find your strength and the resources you need to contend with any obstacles that you are facing. I am also certified in the KonMari Method (trained by Marie Kondo) and can utilize this action-focused process as part of your treatment plan if you so desire.
The bulk of my clinical experience is in work with individuals and families dealing with serious life changes and transitions including diagnosis of medical issues, family caregiver stress, personal loss, crisis and grief counseling. I also have a specialized background in an employee assistance program, and as a Certified KonMari Consultant.
We will make a treatment plan together to reach your goals through short-term counseling - usually in 10 sessions or less. I invite you to call me for a consultation to discuss your needs so we can strategize together and make a plan that works for you.
