For 25+ years, my areas of expertise have included: CBT approaches to anxiety and depression, the
experience, coping with a loved one’s mental illness, living well with ongoing medical/mental health conditions, the quest for job satisfaction, life after trauma and loss, harm reduction and recovery from addiction, and the happy aging experience.
Change—both expected and wanted or the complete opposite—affects us all, and we cope with it in varying ways. Traumatic events are never planned and often require new strategies to effectively navigate a world that may no longer feel as safe as it once had. The impact of loss, anticipated or not, deeply affects individuals, families and couples. My clinical practice is built on an investment in encouraging one’s own narrative expression of the human experience, identifying skills and strategies for living one’s best life, and providing a secure and caring place in which to grow and love change.
