Being home with your kids in a pandemic is a LOT to handle. It feels impossible to keep on top of online schoolwork, get meals ready, and get your own work done. You're exhausted. And that means more fights with your partner, too. You just need a moment to yourself. To relax and regroup. You're so ready for the kids to go back to school. But you're dreading that moment too. You remember the phone calls about classroom behavior and unfinished assignments. And the meltdowns over drama with friends. You're not sure you're ready to handle all that again. But it CAN get better. Now, and in the future.

Helping people with disabilities help ourselves! Learning you have a chronic illness or disability can feel overwhelming. You may feel "broken," alone, or depressed, but you're not. I've successfully helped clients work through the initial shock of diagnosis, learn effective coping skills, and view the present and future in a realistic, positive light. I've also helped clients with chronic illnesses maximize their quality of life and reach their goals, such as returning to work or school, or being a better parent or spouse. We'll set up a plan that meets your needs now, then empower you to reach your goals together.

Recognizing the the mind-body-spirit connection, understanding healthy and antiquated defenses and increasing capacity for feeling a greater range of emotions at a deeper level is an important focus of the psychotherapy process. Identifying feelings, understanding reactions and learning better, more effective means of communicating with others is integral as well.
