About My Clients

Do you find yourself avoiding parts of your life that once felt satisfying and purposeful. My clients struggle as you do. They experience anxiety, depression, and feelings of hopelessness, even though they may have at one time been able to beat back such problems with strong faith, previous therapy or sources of inspiration. They may believe something is really wrong with them as they notice the resilience they’ve had before just isn't available in the face of their current challenges.

My Background and Approach

I work with people approaching middle age and older, who are struggling with life changes that have disrupted things to the point where usual patterns of coping no longer serve. In working through the disruptions we often find that boundaries need shoring up, self-esteem is in need of recovery, and that deeper healing is possible and deserved. This process gives rise to the value of stepping into the wholeness of who you really are. If you are reeling from a life change (or many) that has you feeling out of control, and are finding that the usual sources of support and self-care are not offering the relief you need, I can absolutely relate. My mission is to offer you a new way forward. Relief and inner freedom are not out of your reach. We can’t always change what’s happening, or what will happen, but we can address the impact and degree to which we are burdened by it.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a genuine recovering control freak. I know what it is like to believe I am independent, in control but still hustling for validation from others; cringing at the word “codependent” while relating to all the traits of one. The process of grieving, acceptance, and letting go of this way of being has been brutally challenging and enormously freeing. This inner freedom is what I am called to serve others in finding. What really sucks is that the brutality of the process is usually the way, but we don’t have to go it alone. Your path is unique but the range of human emotion you encounter on the path is universal.
