My Approach to Helping

Transitions (often unexpected), new or ongoing medical illnesses, and losses of all kinds can be disorienting. Yet, when prior perspectives and ways of coping no longer relieve the stress of such changes, these challenges can open the way to new insight. This, in turn, opens new possibilities for moving with what life brings.

There are strategies and skills that may complement the process, but primarily there is the work of hearing yourself-- in this current situation, right now-- in the presence of a non-judging other. This is where the process begins, and next steps become clearer from this position.

Change is real, new directions are possible. Wherever you are, begin.

More Info About My Practice

With transitions and loss issues, from adulthood to end of life, clinical psychology and psychotherapy approaches can clarify 'sticking' places, explore difficult feelings, and address preoccupations in a way that may open to new perspective and forward movement. Psychoanalytically oriented practice may also be a way of working through when life presents with unknown territory.

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

When physical symptoms or medical conditions are primary, the work may bring direct attention to issues that you may not get to discuss with your physician. These may include:1) repercussions of stress, physical symptoms and medical conditions, 2) particular psychological symptoms related to illness processes, or 3) barriers to change in lifestyle that affect health and well-being.

In particular, I have had a career-long commitment to challenges arising from diagnoses of cancer or neurological conditions in oneself or loved ones. Coordination with medical providers and other members of the healthcare team may be part of the work. Speaking with someone who is familiar with these patterns and processes can make a difference.
