Areas of Expertise

I have a general practice, meaning I work with those with a wide range of problems.  I have many areas of expertise, but I particularly excel in these areas:

* Support for those adjusting to the 40's, 50', and 60's, including relationships with young adult offspring, caring for aging adults, and taking care of SELF as the generation in the middle

* Support regarding societal/cultural changes and related anxiety, fear, and loss/sadness

 * Help for those wanting to learn about and understand themselves and grow

 * Moving beyond depression, anxiety and mood problems in children and adults 

 * Learning from, and growing through, relationship problems

 *  Adjusting to transitions such as moving, job/career change, separation/divorce, broken relationships 

*  Moving through bereavement and loss with children, teens and adults including for suicide survivors

 * Need/desire for job or career change (not testing, but therapeutic exploration)

* Help for those struggling with faith and spiritual issues and/or lack of meaning/purpose


I am sometimes asked about my spiritual beliefs.  I am coming from a Christian background.  I am sensitive to those from other faiths and spiritual backgrounds.  If you want, I am interested to learn about your spiritual life and will incorporate your spiritual life as much as you would like to.  If there be strengths to your spiritual/faith life, we can use those and build on them.  If your faith/religious background has been a hindrance or source of pain for you and you wish to heal from that, we can do that work. 

 * Healing from loss, trauma and/or emotional/psychological abuse
