About My Practice

Office Hours

Services
There is a certain vulnerability associated with growth and change--and I appreciate the steps you are taking to move forward-- I know life's circumstances are sometimes painful and throw us off center. You dont have to go through it alone--therapy can be a valuable process that allows you to deepen into yourself, create space to grow, heal, make changes needed to lead a more satisfying life, feel more grounded, and bring you back to feeling like your authentic self again. I serve individuals, couples, families, teens and children. Some common outcomes of therapy can include: •Decreased anxiety and depression •Improved relationships with partners, parents and families •Reduced stress and frustration •Support during life transitions •Parenting and co-parenting solutions •Development of practical life skills to take therapy "out of the office" •Quieting "mind chatter" and taming a harsh 'inner voice' •Expanded self esteem •Transforming and letting go of resentments and emotional pain •Understanding the role (and acceptance) of uncomfortable emotions like: anger, guilt, shame, resentment and judgement •Reconnecting with joy and the sense of feeling "alive" •An overall sense of well-being, groundedness, connection, creativity, compassion, and forgiveness Other specialties include: •Tuning in to the mind/body connection through mindfulness •Healing from loss •Peaceful divorce •Women's issues •Life Transitions •Family relationship issues •Workplace difficulties •Communication skills and/or boundary setting •LGBTQ issues and relationships •Deafness, Deaf Culture (including CODA's), Deaf, hard-of-hearing, and late-deafened identity issues Languages: I am able to provide psychotherapy and counseling services in English, American Sign Language, and other signed communication systems such as Signing Exact English.
