About

Change happens all the time, big and small. Sometimes it's unexpected , and sometimes you make it happen. It can be challenging, exciting, and worth living for; at the same time, it can be scary and upsetting. Losing everyday predictability can lead to uncomfortable feelings. And yet, we're always growing and moving from one set of challenges to another; from child to adult to parent; from family life to an empty nest or being alone; from one job to another, or from active career to retirement; from being single to being committed to another, or from commitment to independence.
I work with children, teens, and adults - individuals and couples - to provide support in coping with uncertainty, anxiety, depression, and old patterns and feelings that change often brings up. Over a longer term, I can help you develop the personal tools to navigate and enrich your life.
How we approach the issues you bring depends on what works best for you. I will want to hear your life history and what meaning it holds for you. Working with thoughts and feelings in a safe, comfortable way is productive too. Exactly how and how much depends on you.
