Hard times are one of life’s guarantees. Sometimes the hard times are more than ‘a bump in the road’. Sometimes life is overwhelming; one big wave after another pounding away, you can scarcely catch your breath and recover. For some, these severe, chronic situations bring depression or anxiety. For others, self-defeating behaviors or chronic self-criticism can take hold. The first step is recognizing your having a hard time; you’ve gotten stuck. A good second step is seeking professional consultation and psychotherapy. That’s where I can help.
The age range of my ideal client is adolescence through adulthood. They may know they are getting into an unproductive rut or simply agree with a loved one who is telling them they are concerned. I am very experienced in helping individuals and families sort out the problems and figure out a path forward. For over 30 years I have worked together with thousands of individuals and families, helping them move forward toward better health and well-being.
Many physicians refer their patients to me who need more frequent follow-up. I am glad to coordinate my services with on-going medical care, for example: depression, anxiety, diabetes management, cancer treatment, bereavement and family loss.
I seek to embody compassion, understanding, insight and active listening with every patient I see.
