Announcement icon You are at home and so am I. We can meet by video conferencing.. No need to feel isolated and alone in challenging times. I am here to help
Anxious, stressed, worried. Life transitions grab you when you least expect them. Worry about losing a job – or actually losing it and having to decide whether to change fields or move to another city for a new job. The children are all out of the house – you didn’t think being an ‘empty nester’ would bother you – but it does! Should you or shouldn’t you separate or divorce? So many aspects you have to address. By working with an experienced therapist, you will learn about yourself and gain the skills you need to be calm and confident as you address life’s changes.
. With 20+ years in practice, I integrate talk therapy with mind-body, meditative and energy approaches (EFT tapping therapy). As a solution-oriented therapist, I know how to help you explore the issues causing you stress and teach you effective techniques so that you can make the changes you want – and handle the many transitions life gives us.
If you are a mid-lifer or a baby boomer with new challenges, it is time to let go of the burden. Reach out. Let’s form a team to help you find relief. I offer a free consultation if you would like to explore how we might work together. Please call me at (301) 852-6123
