Are you experiencing a transition in your life--in a relationship, career, education, or life stage such as early adulthood or midlife? Are you overwhelmed and uncertain, feeling depressed, anxious, grief-stricken, resentful, conflicted, or confused? Change of all types stirs up unsettling feelings, including unresolved issues, memories and traumas. You might feel like you're always in "crisis-mode." When your feelings overwhelm you, they cloud your judgment and vision. Rather than being at their mercy, you can learn to allow your feelings to guide you, no matter how difficult the challenges you face.
Though it might seem daunting, sorting out your feelings with a trained professional can enhance your sense of control and well-being, helping you weather the difficulties and make a smoother transition. Change and transitions offer an opportunity to increase your self-confidence and ability to make more conscious choices.
I value each client as an individual, and work collaboratively with clients to promote insight, self-acceptance and positive change. I have worked with clients in out-patient and college counseling centers and in partial hospitalization programs. I have helped people navigate many types of transitions. I practiced law for 20+ years, giving me insight in working with clients in the legal field.
