Older adults/adults with physical conditions are specialities of mine.
I believe that therapy is an individual, unique, and empowered process for each client that allows them to recognize their inner strengths and workings. Each client has their own answers that they are searching for and struggles they are trying to overcome in their daily life. During the process of therapy, I strive to help clients develop an increased sense of autonomy and purpose in order to create movement toward these answers. In succession, I help clients develop healthy ways of coping with stressors, as life is inevitably filled with difficulties and obstacles.

I work with and train others to work effectively with diverse people, issues and modalities: relationships, parenting, seniors (Medicare), LGBT, illness, addiction, eating disorders, life challenges.
I have had many years of gratifying experience in deeply engaging with the people I work with, and training and supervising doctoral students and therapists (many on this site have been my students!). Discovering what has been causing personal distress, worry, loneliness, or disappointment is what transforms life. These underlying stresses can cause problems with relationship, career, mood, or just general feelings of dissatisfaction. The personal growth that blooms in the therapy opens doors inside and out, and creates the rich opportunities and experiences we all want in life.

My clients are adults of all ages who are dealing with anxiety and/or depression. They have difficulty focusing on tasks or leaving the house. Some have struggles with family, including with past or current relationships; others have suffered trauma as children, or as adults. My younger clients are trying hard to live their lives as independent adults, but are feeling lost, or find it too hard to establish stable relationships, or resolve issues with parents or roommates. Many of my older adult clients need help coping with the challenges and losses associated with aging; but they also seek social connection and a sense of purpose.

I have experience working with children, adolescents, young professionals & seniors with chronic illness and use a wide array of modalities that promote a deeper understanding of how past experiences are linked to behavioral and emotional patterns.
On the road to self-realization and fulfillment, we often encounter hurdles and obstacles that can make us feel like we have been knocked off course. In many instances, therapy can be an effective means to get us back on track. It is a way to develop a higher level of insight and understanding of ourselves and our place in the world around us. I offer support and guidance in your exploration of your past and present, via a compassionate, collaborative and non-judgmental relationship, in order to help you reach a sense of awareness and empowerment.
