Most of my clients come to me in the midst of some sort of transition--a difficult relationship, a new job, divorce, retirement, a move, etc.--that they are unable to navigate alone. I also see many persons confronting cancer, chronic pain or a crisis of faith. When we first meet, we will explore what brings you into therapy at this time. We will create a plan together to achieve the outcome you would like best. Many times, I find that transitions involve a certain amount of loss and grief that has not yet been acknowledged. Our goal would be to fit this transition, or life condition, large or small, into your overall life journey.

I intend to walk with you through this time of change in your life and help you to heal. I have worked with all kinds of people with differing problems. My specialties are: spirituality, chronic pain, suffering, cancer treatment, death and dying. I have also worked extensively with LGBTQIA clients.
