Are you feeling stuck? I help clients move forward with an approach that is warm, down to earth and gently challenging. We will identify negative patterns that are holding you back in your life and build upon your core strengths and values so you can take practical steps toward living a more fulfilling life. You may be struggling with overwhelming stress, loss or trauma. If so, without minimizing the realities of your situation, I will help you accept what cannot be changed and move forward with perspective, hope and confidence.
In 23 years as a licensed psychologist, I've worked with clients from wide-ranging backgrounds on issues including transitions, relationships, depression, anxiety and self-esteem. Years of university teaching experience enable me to introduce people to new ideas in a way that is always supportive and sometimes even fun.
Training with experts in the fields of mindfulness and cognitive and narrative therapies allows me to draw upon many different counseling techniques to best meet the unique needs of each client. I am glad to provide free phone consultations to determine if my approach is a good match for you.
