Transitions in life such as birth, illness, death, divorce, aging, or career change, can be exciting, but also, devastating, confusing or scary. There can be a variety of reactions to these challenges, and at times having to make choices can leave you feeling stuck or depressed, and unable to make a decision. My passion is guiding women through these life transitions with compassion, empathy, and support. As an Oncology Social Worker I have learned how important it is to get to the heart of an issue and work toward resolutions, skills I learned working with patients experiencing life threatening illnesses.

For more than thirty-five years I have worked as a therapist addressing a broad array of concerns. Forming a solid working relationship is the foundation of all therapeutic change. No matter where someone is in the life cycle, the search for meaning and purpose always remains an essential endeavor. Learning how to take care of ourselves is the task of a lifetime. A shared exploration of the past opens the way to a deeper understanding of the present and inspires hope for shaping the future. My intent is to identify barriers to change, work towards their removal, and engender personal advancement.

My work as a counselor draws from values of justice and creativity. I support clients in moving toward change and growth, at a pace they choose. I often hear from people who are concerned that their experiences aren’t bad enough for counseling or that talking about hard experiences would be like opening an old wound. Anyone can benefit from meeting with a counselor, and everyone deserves the type of healing that feels right for them. I want you to get the counseling experience you are looking for (even if you aren’t sure what that is yet). I am happy to communicate by phone or email to answer any questions you might have.

Working with children, adolescents, young adults, and families involves a collaborative process involving all of the individuals who help a child develop, including relatives, school staff, pediatricians, and other therapists. It also involves creating a positive, upbeat, and energetic setting to foster growth and development. Utilizing techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Family Systems therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), including mindfulness, my treatment paradigm involves evidence-based practices for a wide range of behavioral and emotional issues. I believe therapy should be proactive and not reactive, and that it must focus on strengths and not just weaknesses.
