Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

If you are in transition or feel stuck, a good therapist can make a huge difference. Sometimes changes happen as a result of an obvious loss: the end of a relationship, a death, a divorce. Sometimes the transition is more subtle, even positive (getting a new job, a new baby) but can be just as much of a tar pit. You are my ideal client. I have the skills and know-how to help get you unstuck and back on solid ground.
