I primarily work with men, women and couples to help them navigate the "second half of life." We're living longer and the landscape of retirement is changing. Many people don't want to retire, others can't afford to retire, others are ready to embark on their "retirement transition" and still others have retired and, down the road, have begun to feel that "somethig is missing." The goal is devlop a "realistic optimism" and figure out how to live your life in a way that's good for you and to hopefully feel "no regrets" at the end of your life. I believe in embracing your "bonus years" as a time to grow, learn and evolve.  I intergrate my understanding of life transitions, adult development and positive psychology with my 40 + years of clinical experience and my life experiences. I co-authored the book The Couple's Reirement Puzzle and have contributed to other books. I work with individuals as well as couples and am planning to start two groups--one for couples and one for women. --with the belief that well-beng is a combination of connection, engagement and purpose and meaning.

  I enjoy facilitating workshops and breakout sessions and speaking to professional and community groups about a variety of topics related to mid-life and beyond.

I am a member of the National Speaker's Association, Life Planning Network, American Society on Aging, American Psychological Association, National Association of Social Workers and I am a Certified Senior Advisor. I also teach about aging from a wellness perspective.

I offer a monthly webinar for professionals and the public on the 4th Tuesday of each month:  The 4th Tuesday Revolutionize your Retirement Interview with Expert's Series to Help you Create a Fullfilling Second Half of Life. Sign-up begins the third week of each month at www.revolutionizeretirement.com. The call is accessible via phone or Internet.
