Puzzled about life, family, work, or friends? Not sure how to move forward with life transitions? Are issues of aging impacting your happiness? Willing to try a unique approach? I am a clinical therapist that listens and thinks differently than others. The goal is to understand who you are in your family/society and how those structures impact your life. Take time to reflect on and identify the patterns that create anxiety in your life while learning new techniques to process stress. Enjoy a supportive, non-judgmental environment, a place where you can transform and learn new methods of self-care.
I am a licensed clinical social worker, a clergywoman specializing in Bowen Family Systems Theory. I approach complex issues from various perspectives. I am perceptive, creative, innovative in my approach to therapy. I understand how anxiety functions. I provide counseling for individuals, couples, families, corporate/clergy groups facing life transitions.
Life is like a puzzle – often the pieces just don’t seem to fit creating uncertainty and a host of issues. Come, let’s talk and begin to put the pieces of life back together. I enjoy culturally diverse clients, providing in person/secure telehealth sessions. I look forward to talking with you, sharing your life journey, and creating a new story of hope.
