I specialize in grief and loss, dementia, end-of-life issues, trauma, and other severe mental health conditions.
Are you struggling to find balance in your life? Let's work together to increase your self-confidence, control, and happiness! I enjoy working with adults in crisis. Anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and trauma are just a few of the areas of focus in my practice. It is my belief that no individual should face mental health challenges alone. Trained therapists can help clients overcome the challenges that seem insurmountable and may decrease their ability to enjoy life, set and achieve goals, and look forward to a brighter future.

I have a great deal of experience working with people who have chronic illness, depression, anxiety and co-dependency. I work with many people who are the caregivers to their families. I’ve observed that caregivers are often wonderful about taking care of everyone except themselves. As a therapist I will help you prioritize self care. I will support you in setting limits and boundaries and keeping that backbone when then temptation is to please others at your own expense. It is OK to say “No”. It is OK to put yourself first for a change. It is important that you feel seen and heard. Your feelings matter.

For over 15 years, I have helped clients improve their most important relationships. I have found that when we experience conflict, communication challenges, a lack of emotional/physical intimacy, or have unmet needs, we can struggle to feel complete. Whether I am working with an individual client, a couple, or an entire family system, I can support you in strengthening your intimate relationships. I specialize in maternal mental health (infertility, pregnancy, and postpartum), premarital and marital counseling, parent-child interactions, and extended family (in-laws, siblings, and family of origin) dynamics.

The most important aspect of therapy is the relationship between the therapist and the client. Having a good fit with a therapist creates comfort and safety. It is an incredible privilege to be a therapist and to be trusted with another’s private thoughts and feelings. I work with adults who struggle with anxiety, work stress, parenting, navigating relationships, and a host of life’s difficulties. My goal is to be a partner with those who recognize the need for help and want to make changes. I try to find those areas where people feel “stuck” and support them in taking risks to become “unstuck.”

Dementia Therapists

Can dementia patients benefit from counseling?

Dementia patients can often benefit significantly from counseling. While neurologists typically treat dementia itself, counselors provide crucial emotional support for patients and their families. Therapists specializing in dementia can help clients navigate aging, end-of-life issues, social isolation, sleep challenges, and grief. They can also assist clients in adapting to the disease by addressing caregiving concerns and supporting family members. Counselors will often also collaborate with a patient's neurologist or other medical providers to manage dementia symptoms and medication needs.

How can you tell if someone has dementia or Alzheimer's?

To determine if someone has dementia or Alzheimer's disease, there are several signs and diagnostic methods that medical professionals use. Early signs of dementia often include memory loss, difficulty with problem-solving, and challenges in completing familiar tasks. Diagnosing dementia or Alzheimer's requires a comprehensive approach, as there is no single definitive test, and initial diagnosis can sometimes be difficult as symptoms tend to worsen progressively over time. To make a diagnosis, medical professionals typically use a combination of methods, including standardized questionnaires and cognitive tests to assess memory, attention, and problem-solving skills, psychiatric evaluations to understand mental health status, brain scans to look for physical changes in the brain, as well as other medical tests to rule out other conditions.

What are the first-line treatment options for Alzheimer’s disease?

There is no cure for Alzheimer's disease, but catching the disease in its early-to-moderate phases can be beneficial in order to initiate first-line treatments to help manage symptoms. Medications such as galantamine, rivastigmine, and donepezil are examples of cholinesterase inhibitors that are commonly prescribed for Alzheimer’s disease. In addition, working with a therapist or social worker can also often help patients with the disease address common behavioral and lifestyle concerns, such as anxiety, depression, irritability, sleep problems, social support, and housing changes.

When to seek treatment for Alzheimer’s?

It’s best to seek treatment at the first signs of Alzheimer's. Early warning signs of Alzheimer’s include memory problems, such as forgetting appointments or directions, as well as trouble concentrating, paying attention, retrieving words, and carrying out daily household tasks. An early diagnosis can help people slow the progression of the disease with medication and plan for the future in terms of housing, social/caregiving support, and finances.
