"Adolescence can be an incredibly challenging time for kids, as well as for their families. The days can drag on, as the years fly by. While teenagers are striving for independence and control, we as adults know that it may take time and effort until they are truly ready to take the reins successfully. This can be a difficult balance that can lead to turmoil and conflict. I am here to help children and teens find the tools to successfully navigate this time of change, and to help whole families increase respectful dialogue and peace at home. I also work with parents to increase effective parenting and co-parenting strategies. "

"Many people feel disconnected from their true selves going through life looking o.k. on the outside but feeling awful on the inside. This causes all kinds of symptoms: depression, irritability, anxiety, alienation, boredom, dissatisfaction, lack of motivation, and disinterest in life. Through our work together, I help you to access deeper parts of yourself which can bring back vitality and meaning into your life. Problems often arise from childhood issues or from life transistions; college, marriage, birth, divorce, or death of a loved one. Through developing a deeper connection with yourself suffering can be transformed into growth and strength."

"I work with people who face challenges that often arise but are not exclusive to the second half of life such as: the trauma of illness & death, caring for aging parents, loss of satisfaction or sense of meaning in relationships and work, loss of a job, and/or loneliness. I also work with folks suffering from love addiction or love avoidance. These challenges can often be baffling and carry symptoms such as depression, fear and anxiety. The rational mind may understand what is going on but somehow the emotional and physical body can't always take solace in rational solutions."

It might be something new and unfamiliar or something too well known and you're tired of history repeating itself. I believe history does not have to repeat itself. Emotions can shift and patterns of behavior can change. It's not simple, easy or fast. There is comfort in the familiar and it takes bravery to change.
