I provide support and help for adults and senior individuals as they transition through the many challenges and stages of life. I use Counseling, Coaching and Consulting to help guide you in the journey to meeting goals. My many years of experience and specialty training in Mental Health, Geriatric Care, Alzheimer's Disease/ Dementia along with Teaching and Case Management have prepared me for results-oriented outcomes in short periods of time. And, most of all; sometimes it is just good to have a "safe place" for sharing thoughts, feelings and grief. Your energy is precious, don't waste it. Give me a call.

You know there is more of who you truly are, under the surface, waiting to be unlocked. You sense that you have old beliefs or conditioning or fears, picked up from other people or culture, that hold you back from feeling truly open and free and comfortable with yourself. Yet, maybe you can't quite figure out how to break free from these feelings...from these limitations that you didn't ask for. There is nothing wrong with you. Things have just happened to you in life. If you're reading this, then perhaps you're at a place where you're ready to step more fully into your self...a place where there is more compassion and freedom.

I have no ideal client. The best part of this job is getting to know such a wide range of people with so many types of issues. I have 30 years experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families in community as well as out-patient and in-patient settings . Geographically, I've worked with families and trained workers in Seattle, New York, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. I've done in-home work in the Bronx, and helped develop policy all over the country. I am now in private practice and address issues that can affect us all, such as, anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD and most mental health issues.

I believe that every human being has uniqueness and potential to lead a satisfying life. I have continually sought personal growth and professional training to strengthen my capacity as a therapist. People experience results and growth in working with me, learn to cope with depression, resolve anxieties, improve intimate relationships, increase capacity for self control, develop effective parenting and better understanding of their children, overcome trauma like divorce or abuse, achieve better school performance, social skills, and find peace in their hearts.

Do you feel like nobody really sees you? Are you afraid that if they do, they’ll turn away? Sometimes we find ourselves putting on a “perfect” face because inside, we feel anything but. We lash out at the people close to us and then we feel confused and guilty. Maybe you’ve begun to notice some relationship patterns that no longer serve you. Maybe anxiety is holding you back from living a full life. Or maybe unprocessed trauma or grief are showing up in distressing ways. Therapy can help you get unstuck and move from feeling overwhelmed, disconnected, and not-enough to balanced, engaged, and whole. I’ve got you.

I am experienced working with children, adults, couples, and families. Many times, people who call me are in distress, having tried what feels like everything, and they often feel frustrated and overwhelmed by their situation. My goal is to help individuals identify patterns of dysfunction that create problems for them. I work within the framework of an individual’s gifts and challenges to develop a strong relationship that allows for open communication and honesty. My strengths-based approach allows individuals to feel they have a voice and builds upon the good that is already taking place within their life and relationships.

Sometimes people see counseling/coaching as a process that could be negative: trying to decipher & share feelings, opening up old wounds, resistance to change. It’s uncomfortable and uncertain to delve deep into these areas of our life. We all want to live “our best lives”. We strive to be financially secure, take care of our physical health through diet & exercise, see the benefit of being social and doing fun things, attempt to engage in meaningful relationships, seek spirituality and a sense of transcendence. But we fail in many of these pursuits when we don't understand our own inner-workings.
