Most of us experience stress as we adjust to changes, but sometimes it deepens into painful constant anxiety and/or depression. Even positive changes produce stress (marrying, job promotion). However, negative changes (job loss, serious medical diagnosis, loved one's death, or a breakup) may produce life impairing distress and dysfunction. I encourage clients to process their past to gain insight into life patterns, then using that knowledge to make better choices about how to cope. Many people tell me they feel better and more capable of handling stress after talking with me!
As psychologist in private practice, later specializing in geriatrics at LTC/Rehab facilities, and as R.N., I worked with those who have medical conditions, plus with their caregivers. The accompanying depression is a specialty. Finally, I help parents, especially Christian parents, to better understand and love their LGBTQ children.
I offer faith-based counseling for people whose faith is important to them. Our faith is often an important resource. At other times we have difficult questions. Life feels "too hard", we suffer excessive guilt, or feel abandoned by God - all common with severe stressors and a part of suffering.
