I have presented at professional conferences and have over 10 years of experience helping people overcome a wide range of psychological issues. While I have experience with all ages, my current practice focuses on individual therapy for adults and older adolescents.
My specialties include treating symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, and adult ADD (very common in creative people and "out of the box" thinkers).
I believe in tailoring therapy to each individual's personality. Overall, I focus on proactive approaches that emphasize the importance of positive self-talk, constructive problem solving, effective communication, and balanced priority setting. I believe there is always hope and untapped sources of inner strength.
As a mother of five, I also relate to the need to successfully navigate work-family pressures and adjust to different life stages over time. I enjoy helping other mothers find their own best balance between family, community, and work responsibilities, so that each role can be as rewarding as possible.
As a certified hypnotherapist, I often augment therapy with relaxation exercises, guided imagery and hypnosis. Research shows that these are very effective tools, particularly for reducing anxiety.
I truly love what I do! I feel privileged to be able to help people build happier, healthier lives.
Please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to being of service to you.
