Profession: Psychologist
Services: Psychotherapy/Counseling
Practice Description: Do you feel that your usual ways of coping are not effective at dealing with current issues? Are you overwhelmed and need to examine priorities? At one time or another many people find that they need new strategies for coping or want to examine patterns in their lives. Transitions are often challenging, whether they are positive transitions such as new career, marriage and children or issues of loss such as divorce, death of a spouse or parent or financial difficulties. I believe that although friends and family can be supportive and helpful in dealing with problems, there often comes a point where professional help is necessary.

My strengths as a therapist are establishing rapport, creating a sense of safety and helping clients identify and confront their blind spots in dealing with issues. I help clients identify their emotional roadblocks, understand the challenges that undermine their self esteem and create more effective and fulfilling personal and professional relationships. I have experience working with many age groups from young adults starting their careers and establishing relationships to seniors grappling with retirement, loss and grief. I believe in helping people to feel empowered, competent and productive. Accepting help is often a challenge but once the process is underway therapy can be a positive and growth producing experience.
