Are you having a hard time? Are you looking for respectful, non-judgmental support and encouragement?
I help parents feel stronger, happier and healthier. If you are struggling with depression, anxiety or dealing with big changes in your life, I can help.
My practice is entirely virtual. I meet with my clients via a HIPAA compliant version of Zoom.
Most of my clients come to me because they feel stuck. They want to know how to create real, lasting change. They want to improve their lives or resolve a life crisis. Sometimes they don’t know what they want except that they want things to be different. I help them figure it out.I offer my clients unconditional loving acceptance of who they are right this minute, especially if they cannot find that acceptance for themselves.
I trust that my clients can and will discover their best selves by confronting both their successes and failures. I hold my clients in this trust as they work towards understanding, helping them find their strengths and bring them forward in their struggles.At it’s most essential, the work I do helps my clients figure out who they are so they can take this knowledge beyond the counseling office and into the rest of their lives.
