Life is filled with change; some planned and exciting, others unexpected and scary. Sometimes even planned change can tax our coping ability. Life transitions such as leaving college, finding satisfying relationships, marriage, having children, divorce, becoming a step family, and retirement can present unforeseen challenges. It is at times like these that having the guidance of an experienced professional can make the difference between "sinking" under the stress and "swimming" with feelings of mastery. As a psychotherapist and coach I have specialized in helping individuals and couples navigate the choppy waters of life change.
