I am passionate about helping families manage difficult life transitions. Maybe the path to pregnancy hasn't been as easy as you thought it would be, or taking care of a newborn feels overwhelming. It could be that your school age child is facing stress or a change in behavior. Perhaps you are facing a new medical diagnosis, or are a caregiver to someone with a chronic illness . Or, possibly, you need to process your feelings of grief and loss.

I work with clients who are struggling with anxiety, challenging life transitions, or new roles (e.g., caregiving, parenthood, breakups, juggling family and professional life). I often work with high-achieving individuals in demanding fields (e.g, physicians, attorneys, entrepreneurs) who are facing burnout and barriers to growth. I also have expertise working with family caregivers of loved ones with dementia or chronic illness . I have training in evidence-based therapies (CBT, ACT, EFT) for a wide range of problems.

During my 30+ years of clinical practice I find myself working particularly effective with important life transition stages, i.e. adolescents, young adult, mid-life, later-life. I view issues of loss, marriage, divorce, identity, vocation and aging as doorways to a deeper and more actualized life. Out of intensive study, practice, and my own life experiences, I meet the client at their own unique crossroad. Together we engage in a journey of symptom-relief, discovery and new possibilities. I am an active and engaging therapist...learning from hundreds of private practice clients & families & additional hundreds of agency participants.

If you are looking at this page, you are most likely trying to get help. Finding a good match is essential to successful therapy. I connect with clients by listening and exploring without judgement. Clients have told me they appreciate my compassion, finding it easy to talk with me about difficult issues. Psychotherapy is a process of self-discovery where you learn why you do what you do, as well as how to change behaviors. Many hide their authentic self, conforming to the expectations of others. Psychotherapy can assist you in becoming reacquainted with yourself.

Have you been feeling anxious? Has parenting become overwhelming? Are you looking for a steady path forward despite life transitions? I have a strengths based approach to therapy and can help you gain the coping skills you are searching for. When extreme or long term stressors occur, past coping skills may no longer work. Therapy is a chance to re-set your approach and gain more effective strategies to reduce anxiety.
