Couple's Counseling

Over time, even the strongest relationship can run into trouble. If you have lost intimacy, argue frequently, or have trouble understanding one another, I can help you improve communication, manage anger, understand the root problems, and make your relationship satisfying again.

Identity Concerns

Are your family’s or society’s expectations for your life not right for you? I can provide support and guidance for you to explore your dreams and aspirations, define your sexual orientation, or discover your authentic self. We can identify your priorities, strengths, and values and develop a plan to help you start living the life you want.

Depression and Anxiety

Most people need support and guidance sometime in their lives in order to break through anxiety, depression, panic attacks, or phobias. Together we will use behavioral strategies, self-exploration, and positive thoughts and actions to help you get what you want out of life.

Grief and Loss

When you have experienced a life-changing loss, it can be difficult to both grieve and manage everyday life. Whether you are experiencing the death of a loved one, surviving a trauma, or facing the end of a relationship, I can help. Together, we can create a safe space to honor and explore your feelings. Over time, you can learn to acknowledge your loss while embracing all that life has to offer.

Adult Learning Disabilities

Do you find that you learn differently than others? Have you always struggled with reading or writing? Is it hard to figure a tip? Does math seem like a foreign language? I will work with you to understand your learning styles and maximize your personal and professional strengths. Because learning disabilities can affect all areas of life, we will work on building self-esteem, self-acceptance, and supportive communities. As a member of the Learning Disabilities Association, I can help the adult student find resources and accomodations for academic success.

Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Are you having trouble staying organized at home and work? Does it seem like you’re always looking for something you’ve lost? Do you start projects that never get finished? Do you feel like you’re always on the go and can’t slow down? I can teach you solutions for managing the details of life that will allow you to better enjoy your unique strengths.
