I have several passions: 1) I help women struggling with depression and self esteem, especially as they age, to find meaning in their lives. 2) I help parents raise kids who will want to come home for Thanksgiving...and you'll want to see them. 3) I help parents who have made a decision not to work but to be full-time stay-at-home parents feel confident and validated in their choice. There is no more important work than successfully raising the next generation. 4) I help seniors dealing with aging issues, depression and addictions.

I sought training in Cognitive Behavior Therapy in response to my mother's suicide at age 69 to learn about sound treatment for depression to protect myself and learn how to help others. My training in CBT also taught me how I had maintained my low self-esteem and how to reverse it in myself and in others.

In addition, having worked in in-patient treatment for chemical dependency and mood disorders, I decided to teach parenting classes and offer parent coaching as primary prevention, to help parents raise children to make healthier choices. My best credentials are my two adult children who have carved unique, different, satisfying lives.

Professional Connections

Stephanie and I have collaborated on clients over the years. In order to do this well, I took her parenting classes. I was very impressed with her ability to incorporate information from many different sources and communicate them in a way that her class participants are able to use with their families. Through her work with clients, she has been able to help clients feel much better and not let depression, anxiety and other mental health issues get in their way of fully participating in their own lives. If you have an opportunity to work with Stephanie, I strongly encourage you to take it!
