A note from the Life Transitions Specialist®:

“Change typically does not sit comfortably with most people. As a result, it is very common for anxiety and/or depression to manifest in one’s life. I focus on guiding my clients through times when they feel most challenged by a change on the horizon: choosing a career path, getting married, becoming pregnant, dealing with a medical illness and loss, caring for an aging parent and the aging process. My goal is to address the psychological turbulence that appears throughout the developmental lifespan and help you better cope with where you are in life- as well as where you are heading.

Finding the right therapist with whom one feels they can trust and connect with is vital, as healing takes place when one feels most safe. I take a relational and insight-oriented approach in working with clients. I believe that in order for therapy to be most effective, both therapist and client must work collaboratively. It takes the 2 of us to figure out how to best understand and solve your life challenges.”
