Have you been feeling anxious, depressed, or stuck in some area of your life? Are all of your efforts to feel better not helping you to make and maintain changes that leave you feeling good about yourself, or like you are making progress toward your goals? This can change!

For over 20 years I have effectively helped people to understand and change what interferes with their confidence, their relationships, and the ability to cope with life transitions and losses. Self-defeating coping skills, as well as healthy coping skills that cannot be maintained, lead to feeling “stuck.” This leads to frustration and self-doubt. Once this cycle is understood, healthy, sustainable coping skills can be easily learned and implemented. This is life changing!

In addition to healthy coping skills, communication skills are necessary for creating and maintaining a happy life. Without these skills, relationships may feel difficult and lacking in the fulfillment and connection you would like. Excellent communication skills can be easily learned and used with my help. This enhances “every” relationship. When couples work with me and practice these communication skills, they typically report faster resolution of their conflicts, and a more fulfilling relationship with their partner.

NOW is the time to get “unstuck.” It is my greatest pleasure to help people that are seeking to improve their feelings about themselves and their experience of life. With the greatest compassion and support, I will assist you on your journey. Don’t waste another minute feeling less than good about yourself, your relationships and your life. Call Now.


Areas of Expertise

The ability to have a conversation with ease about “anything” is something that may seem unthinkable, yet with some simple skills that are easy to learn, this can be anyone’s experience. People who have done this work with me report greater fulfillment in all of their relationships. Not only does good communication improve relationships, but it boosts self-confidence and self-awareness tremendously. It’s empowering to know that you can express yourself and handle any conversation that you want to have with anyone!

I teach couples and individuals how to communicate in ways that help them convey clearly and kindly what it is they want to say. This ability creates trust, and when there is trust between two people in a conversation, both parties experience greater satisfaction. This makes for a deeper connection in important relationships, as well as a greater ease in professional and casual relationships. Having these tools is nothing short of life changing!

I have assisted many individuals in their grieving process. The loss of a loved one can result in anxiety, depression, and even loss of motivation when the pain doesn’t subside over a long period of time. The emotions that surface from loss can feel agonizing. With respect for this very vulnerable experience, I help the bereaved to access coping skills and hope, that then allow them to regain balance in their life and thrive again.

In addition to the death of a loved one, the pain of loss can be experienced for a variety of other reasons. Some life transitions can bring a greater experience of loss than one might expect. For instance, divorce, the ending of any important relationship for that matter, loss of health and even some changes that accompany the aging process can stir grief. The COVID 19 Pandemic brought with it yet more experiences of loss. Many have lost financial security, loss of a general sense of safety (previously enjoyed), and even cancelled milestone events.

I have helped individuals in all of these situations. While it might feel impossible to move through heartache of these sorts at times, healing from such losses occurs and often leads to newly discovered strength and confidence.
