I am a certified life coach who specializes in clients discovering their life purpose, what their goals are in life and how they can attain these goals. Recently I have been working with many teenagers struggling with how to manage that difficult transition from childhood to young adult. I have also worked with many women work through difficult life transitions like divorce, empty nesting, career change, a need to get out of a stagnant relationship. Coaching is a fantastic tool to move people forward. It is a much quicker process than therapy.

TELETHERAPY AVAILABLE, We might face life circumstances that seem impossible to cope with. Trusting that you can bounce back and move on can be quite a challenge during such times, but is for sure possible. I have had the opportunity to work with a diverse range of clients who have dared to hope, to seek help, and take charge of their life to create a better future. I have worked with individuals of different ages (adolescents, adults and seniors) with diverse backgrounds and life experiences.

I believe that therapy is most effective when provided in an authentic and nonjudgmental setting between two equals. Through my practice I have found that many issues can be alleviated or improved by making behavioral changes and sessions tend toward these present-oriented approaches, such as Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy (changing unhelpful thoughts and behaviors), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (helping to regulate out-of-control emotions), and Neurofeedback (also called EEG Biofeedback, this form of brain training is helpful for many issues including but not limited to anxiety, depression, attention problems).

I do believe each person and family has unique resources to activate healing processes. Brief Therapy requires a highly collaborative approach between therapist and clients, and focuses on practical solutions and clear communication. Brief Therapy offers a maximum of 10 sessions but usually don't need that many to promote change in the problem that is presented. I work with individuals, couples and families with a variety of problems: marital conflict and affairs, depression and anxiety, children and adolescent problems, addiction, eating disorders, stress and work related problems. I also provide online-therapy services.

My clients would likely say I'm open minded, down to earth, and easy to talk to. 20 years of experience have taught me that respectful understanding is key in working with clients (regardless of background / age) as they seek to feel better, understand their circumstances, and engage proactively in their lives. My main area of work has been supporting adolescents and adults managing symptoms associated with emotional difficulties, traumatic events, decision making, and coping skills for expected life transitions (school / work / "adulting"). I work in tandem with clients as they identify their own needs, challenges, and goals.

While the thought of therapy can be intimidating, your therapist never should be. I want my clients to understand that there is no “right answer” and as a therapist, I am not asking for one. Instead, I want to provide a place where my clients feel safe to openly and honestly express themselves, where they, as experts of their own thoughts and experiences, are in the driver seat. My job is to provide direction and support. Together, we will set goals and work towards them through a relational, empathetic, and direct approach.

Unresolved trauma may be affecting your overall mental and physical wellness. Or, you may be struggling with relationship and marital challenges; facing difficult life transitions; or dealing with symptoms related to anxiety or depression. It is important to know, however, that you are resilient and you have ability to heal, improve self-awareness, and make healthier and positive changes in your life.
