About

Life can sometimes seem a painful and distressing journey. We may struggle with feelings and thoughts and may come to believe people around us do not understand us or appreciate the situation in which we find ourselves. When this happens, it can feel like our goals and and dreams are quickly receding out of reach. We search not only for the reasons for our distress but importantly relief and resolution to bring us back to the calm and safe harbor of our previous state of mind and daily routines. You have tried several approaches and strategies and yet here you are. Nevertheless, each step brings hope and resolution.
To adult children and spouses of patients with dementia, Alzheimer's disease, or mild cognitive decline I can offer treatment focused on quality of life and offering advice for caregiving. To the person in the process of transgender transition, I can offer counseling, education, and empathic acceptance. To couples in turmoil, I can assist in counseling.
For healing, resolution, or impetus forward to occur, a therapeutic alliance needs to be negotiated and formed. Mutual trust and transparency supported by a reasonable and effective course of treatment, acceptance of one another, and an acknowledgement of our limitations are key factors in forming this therapeutic alliance. I stand ready to help you.
