Sometimes we're not our "best selves." We change in ways we're not happy about, or, don't change in ways we'd like to. We feel too sad, disoriented, mad, anxious, numb, ashamed; we have one too many, too often. Job performance can suffer, relationships can wobble, getting to sleep (or out of bed) can become a chore. Life can fade in color, or, become too colorful. Together you and I can find the right flashlight for your dark corners, and a nonjudgmental space from which to address painful, sometimes scary and/or frustrating situations and feelings.

I help adults in all phases of life. I help my clients work through new and past traumas, and through typical or unexpected life transitions. In therapy we can make meaning, find purpose, or forge new paths. Many clients come for help managing symptoms of depression, anxiety, anger, or addictions. If you need help but don't know what questions to ask, that's okay! You don't have to know exactly what's wrong or what you want. Finding out is part of the process! Therapy can be to heal, recover, sort through, reconnect, rejuvenate, strengthen, or change aspects of your life to make it more manageable & meaningful.

Maturity, empathy and well developed listening skills are assets which I offer. I've been especially interested in helping women during pregnancy, and the postpartum period and resolving grief and loss from miscarriages. In addition, addressing issues of depression, anxiety and posttraumatic stress in men or women is especially gratifying to me. I often begin by teaching techniques for stress reduction, or in the case of lethargic depression, ways to energize the body, which help people function better quickly. Most important to me is helping people find hidden strengths and restore inner balance.

My expertise is in the area of major loss (illness, aging, dying, significant life change, bereavement) also caregiving and end-of-life planning. Such challenges are often overwhelming, even immobilizing. We can feel we have hit a brick wall, and may feel depressed, hopeless, anxious or numb. When we are able to be present to it we may discover surprising gifts, such as inner resources we might not know are there, ways to take better care of ourselves, and new understanding of what is most important to us. Some say that, amazingly, life can be transformed in ways that make it richer than ever.
