Announcement icon I am available for video sessions with a user-friendly online service (smartphone, tablet, or laptop). Call/email for more information.
My expertise is helping adults with chronic anxiety and/or depression, and/or grief feel better. My clients are adults who are competent and skilled in many ways, but not in healing their own spiraling fears and emotional pain. With investment in the therapy process, my clients learn to quiet self-criticism, and calm themselves when distressed. They feel more competent in relationship, and they navigate conflicts more skillfully. Daily life is more satisfying. They value themselves and honor what they bring to the world. They feel more hopeful about their future - even if it's not the future they once imagined for themselves.
I have a doctorate, two master's degrees, and specialized training. That helps. So does kindness, intelligence, warmth, and experience. I value working with troubled adults, especially those with "seasoning." I don't judge, and I listen to what my clients tell me is important to them. I know that when people feel understood, and feel safe, they can thrive.
If you are reading this, you are hurting. And I want you to get the help you need. Whether it's with me or someone else, I want you to find what you need so you can live a more satisfying and meaningful life. Therapy is all about the right fit, and it is absolutely OK to call me to see if working with me is the right fit for you.
