The focus of my nearly 30 years in practice is to assist people who find themselves in common yet challenging transitions in their lives. These difficult "phase of life" transitions are often accompanied by painful adjustment experiences including relationship issues, confusion with one's role, interests, or even personal or work identity, difficulty making decisions or taking action, challenges with feeling productive and making a contribution, and finding peace in one's overall experience of life.

When searching for a therapist, either for yourself or for your child, the process can be confusing and frustrating. Finding the right person may be challenging, but it will be worth the effort to find someone you are comfortable with. Ideally therapy will allow you to tell your story and get to the heart of the problems you have been facing. You will be able to build on the knowledge and strengths you already have and ultimately gain the perspective to move through your challenges.

One of the greatest issues that people face in their lifetime is how to cope with death and loss due to divorce, chronic health issues, and any major life transitions. Unfortunately, all too often people just try to move on, doing their individual best to "be strong" and keep going as they did before. Your feelings of grief and loss can be more than you can bear. I offer a supportive and nurturing environment so you can understand those feelings, allow them to be expressed in a safe manner, and help you adapt to the realities of your changed life.

I will help you clarify what your intentions are and help you to be more compassionate with yourself during the process. One of the goals is to be more content and more at peace with yourself and in your relationships with others.

***ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*** I believe that there is no "single" treatment that works best for everyone. I have found that the most effective therapy is when it is tailored to the unique needs of each client. We will spend time becoming acquainted with one another and arriving at a shared understanding of your treatment goals. My practice focuses on creating space in which transformation is possible and old patterns can shift into something that allows for growth and possibility. We will work on the issues that you bring to the table, and together, we will carve out a road map that will help lead you to a more authentic self.

Hello and welcome. It is never easy making the choice to begin therapy. Confiding in someone you don't know takes a lot of courage. With so many professionals out there, it can feel daunting and overwhelming to try and find the right person. A person you feel comfortable with, a place where you feel respected, a space of trust and safety. When I meet with a new client, my priority is to make sure you feel safe, respected, and heard. By working together, you will realize you are not alone.
