Competent Caring Conversations for Change

Each human is unique, with strengths and opportunities, as well as challenges and problems.  People’s solutions arise out of honoring their innate positive strengths, while learning new ways to deal with their challenges.  It is my experience that clients enjoy a friendly, direct, and supportive conversation about the problem they want to work on.  There are many ways to understand a problem and it helps to have a competent and skilled outside source to discuss all the possibilities for resolution.  


I enjoy understanding and working with people of from many backgrounds, ages, and problems. Through the process of collaborative discussion, we determine on what you would like to focus and goals are made to achieve the results you would like to see. I would then suggest several models/ viewpoints from which to view your identified problem and goal.  In each session, we would have a caring and competent conversation, practice a skill to enhance your abilities, and define what “homework” you would accomplish before our next session.  


Some of the problems that I especially enjoy working with are:

-Depression, Anxiety, Stress
-Relationships: Marriage, Family, Parenting, Divorce Transition
- Work and Career Decisions  and Transitions
-Attention and Motivation
-Health and Wellness: Stress Management and Life Balance
-Trauma Resolution
-Family of Origin/ Codependency
-Complicated Relationships: Family Businesses, Dual Career, Step-Families


If you think that you would like to work with me, please call and leave a message on my voice mail.  I strive to return new client calls within
1-2 business days.  We will then have an initial conversation to ask each other questions and determine if we want to work together and other details of practice (hours/ payment/ insurance/ etc).
