My areas of specialty include parenting, college students, managing transitions and supporting parents grappling with their aging parent’s significant illness.
Transitions can be overwhelming, anxiety provoking and even lonely. Emerging adults embarking on first careers as well as seasoned adults navigating a new career path or relationship may need help managing their anxiety and stress. People grappling with their own or a loved one’s serious illness may need support from someone outside their immediate support network. Through my experience in a university counseling center, public schools and a pediatric hospital, I have helped many individuals and families navigate through various changes.

People who seek my services as a psychotherapist often feel stressed, stuck, or even hopeless. These feelings can stem from difficulties in personal relationships (couple/marital, parent/child, aging parents, boss), life transitions (parenthood, infertility, illness, career change), loss (of a loved one,employment), or self-destructive behaviors (abusive relationships, eating disorders, substance abuse). By analyzing the dynamics of these challenges in a confidential environment, utilizing time-tested theories, those with whom I work are often able to relieve their stress, "move-on" with confidence, and even see a clear path when previously all was bleak.

In this way, enduring change is possible and healthier relationships with self and others can be created.
