My Approach to Helping
People are defined by their strengths, not their difficulties. Each of us has the power to change. With my warm and interactive style, I offer a nonjudgmental and safe setting where you can feel comfortable sharing feelings and frustrations. I emphasize helping you make concrete, positive changes in your day to day life. This happens by gaining deeper self-knowledge and altering patterns of thoughts and behaviors that are preventing you from achieving greater personal fulfillment. At a pace that is comfortable for you, I will help you identify major issues that are holding you back, and make real, tangible progress.
I have worked with a wide variety of people. I have extensive experience in treating depression, anxiety, life transitions, addictions, trauma and grief. In addition, I have a strong background in women's issues, including balancing work and personal life, relationship challenges and poor body image.
Whether you're a heterosexual or a gay couple, or wanting to be a single parent, infertility treatment can be emotionally, physically or financially overwhelming. I offer you a calming place to step back from the stressors of treatment, and to focus on your needs--no matter where you're at in the process.
