Life's challenges can sometimes push our coping skills to the brink, and what used to work for us no longer does. Relief from psychological pain comes when we face feelings that we are avoiding and develop new ways of looking at our lives. I have worked successfully with adults experiencing difficult situations at work, in relationships, and in life transitions. Through our work together, I will help you challenge unhelpful beliefs and alleviate distressing emotions so that you can free yourself from suffering, regain hope, make better choices, and live a more authentic, satisfying life.

Helping people with disabilities help ourselves! Learning you have a chronic illness or disability can feel overwhelming. You may feel "broken," alone, or depressed, but you're not. I've successfully helped clients work through the initial shock of diagnosis, learn effective coping skills, and view the present and future in a realistic, positive light. I've also helped clients with chronic illnesses maximize their quality of life and reach their goals, such as returning to work or school, or being a better parent or spouse. We'll set up a plan that meets your needs now, then empower you to reach your goals together.

My approach to therapy is open, supportive, and fosters curiosity instead of judgment. I work to help clients achieve insight about the origins of symptoms, while at the same time providing ways to cope with distressing emotions in the present. Our lives can be full of challenges that leave us feeling sad, overwhelmed, alone, and afraid. Sometimes we are unable to understand why we harbor such feelings. Therapy allows us to sort through our emotions, unhelpful behaviors, and negative self-beliefs so that we can continue on with more clarity, self-assurance, purpose, and happiness.
