My clinical psychology practice involves working with adults experiencing significant life transitions as well difficult emotional states. For many, depression and anxiety that stem from loss, grief and isolation, have been more difficult to manage because of the pandemic. Self-esteem and relationship difficulties have also been more troublesome during this time. I am particularly interested in helping people learn new ways to adapt to changing life circumstances, such as the consequences of the pandemic, adult children leaving home, managing chronic illness, deaths of significant others, and loss of what is familiar.
Issues surrounding retirement are of particular concern. I have worked with the problems of late adulthood for many years and have expertise in supporting caregivers of people with neurological diseases, especially the dementias and Parkinson’s disease.
People generally experience me as non-judgmental, empathic, and optimistic. While people cannot often alter reality, they can learn to act effectively and meaningfully in the face of significant challenge.
