About

I specialize in helping people cope with challenging life transitions, especially as related to difficult emotional situations, physical health or medical conditions. Some transitions, such as the birth of a child, are joyous, but still trying. Other transitions, like diagnosis of an illness or disability, can be frightening, necessitating reevaluation of life choices and daily routines. It's common to feel overpowered by questions about the future, but you may need skilled help to face the big questions and work out manageable solutions. I can help you reduce anxiety, fear, anger, or depression, and move towards productivity, happiness, and acceptance.
If you're feeling battered by your emotions and not sleeping well, I can help you with practical methods to change your situation. If you've encountered a life altering event, or are simply struggling with life's everyday stresses, there is another way to live that can unburden you.
If these problems sound familiar to you and you're considering doing something about them, call me to discuss your situation. I provide a coordinated evaluation and treatment process that assists in determining your individual needs so as to identify the specific interventions which will improve your function and performance.
