I enjoy working with children (9+), teens and adults. I see couples and families helping them live happier, more relaxed, and fulfilling lives. I am respectful of my client's time. I frequently check in to make sure that the sessions are helpful, and that we are focusing on what the client wishes to. If one approach is not working, we try another! When people are feeling anxious, depressed, or angry, often the problem is their stress level and lack of a support system.

I hear every day how stressful life is. You may feel like there is no time to focus on your self-care. So many people are feeling worried, sad. and have too many thoughts flowing through their minds. Many people are feeling that life stressors, life transitions, relationships, their job, or extended family are creating high amounts of stress in their life. These things can make it difficult to focus, sleep, or find happiness in their life. Life is so busy and the daily news only increases everyone's stress level. On some days you may have energy and on others, you may just muddle through. I know it is frustrating and tiring

These are anxious times for us all. Social distancing may be exacerbating struggles you were already experiencing or perhaps it is creating new stressors. If you were already feeling lonely and isolated you may be feeling even more so now. Struggles in your relationship that were easier to avoid with a busy life may now feel inescapable. Or, perhaps this time alone has given you time to think about changes you have been wanting to make in your life but now wonder if they are possible. The future suddenly feels uncertain. Whatever you are wrestling with, chances are these extraordinary times have made them even more challenging.

Being a human is hard. Anxiety keeps us up at night. Depression weighs us down. And that critical voice never fails to let us know exactly how we screwed up. We feel numb, unsettled -- disconnected from those we love and disengaged from what matters most. Looking at our lives, we realize that this is not what we had planned on, and the life we yearn for seems out of reach.
