About

Are you in midlife or older and experiencing anxiety, depression, grief or loneliness? Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed as a caregiver? Would you like to: cope and build on your resilience during challenging times, go beyond merely surviving to experiencing psychological well-being and finding ways to live with vitality as you age, more fully savor and appreciate the gifts of age with mindfulness and self-compassion, thrive in life, expressing your unique wisdom and connection to the world?
I am a clinical psychologist who sees therapy as a collaboration with clients embracing their strengths, enhancing their coping skills and exploring meaning and purpose. I seek to help individuals identify and build on capacities they already have, setting goals together that support healing and growth.
I offer a compassionate, caring presence. Attuned to the challenges of growing older, I understand grief and loss come with the territory of the aging process. I accompany individuals in their life experiences, holding space for the exploration of one’s spirituality and wholeness. If interested, call or email me. Let's set up a free 15-minute phone consult.
