I have specialized in working with families of aging or chronically ill patients, specifically patients with dementia and brain injury. I work with the caregiver to help them negotiate through the stress of caring for a loved one with a chronic illness such as Alzheimer's disease. In addition to my practice focus, I enjoy working with adults seeking to improve their quality of life and are willing to do the work it takes to accomplish that.

On the road of life, we may find that our hopes, dreams and aspirations for living have been derailed, slowed, or halted by the effects of challenging circumstances such as traumatic events, troubled or broken relationships, illness, the loss of a loved one, or many others. These challenges are the bumps on our road, but the depression, sadness, fear, self-doubt, and/or shame that they often invite can feel like roadblocks. In times like these, we need a supportive ally to help co-create a new map for living that opens space for new possibilities and brings forth our values, strengths, wisdom and knowings.

Is your pre-teen or teen-age child unusually irritable, withdrawn, sad, angry or tearful? Teens will often open up to therapists when they don't talk to parents. If your teen is refusing school, or not enjoying life, s/he may be struggling with anxiety or depression, inadequate social skills, bullies, feeling different, sexual identity, parental divorce, or body image worries. I offer a warm, nurturing and safe environment for adolescents to share their feelings and start to feel better about themselves. I enjoy helping adolescents and parents find their way during these difficult times.
