About

My focus is on working with adults who are transitioning through personal and relationship challenges. They may be learning to cope with painful events (divorce, infidelity, loss of a loved one, or life-limiting medical diagnosis). They may also be struggling with emotional suffering from recurring episodes of anxiety, depression, or trauma. My clients have self-doubt, excessive guilt, challenges accepting personal failures, or difficulty finding personal fulfillment or reaching life goals. They aspire to find comfort in their daily life, reduction in emotional suffering, have greater self-confidence, and have motivation to succeed.
My training and experiences have taught me to match treatment to the needs of individuals and provide skill training for navigating the challenges in my clients' lives. I offer emotional support, education, and training in skills for self-regulating mood, changing behavior, and improving self-confidence. Clients who work with me learn we co-create solutions.
I realize how powerful emotions like anxiety and depression can be debilitating and cause self-doubt. I recognize self-sabotage when I see it. Change does not need to be painful. Rather it is incremental and comes in small steps (learning skills and how to apply them) that lead to cumulative changes that last and provide self-confidence and resilience.
