Curating Happiness & Balance In Your Life

Living with anxiety and learning to thrive

As a licensed psychologist, professor, wife, and mom of teens, my areas of expertise are fairly broad. I know how complicated life is. Living with anxiety, depression or any common threat to your happiness is hard. It’s easy to tip off balance, losing a sense of what brings satisfaction and meaning to your life.

 

To help, I offer a range of services to help people face life with more confidence and joy by helping them understand the positive power of their anxiety, the potency of empathy and compassion to heal, and the core benefits of wellness.

 

Living with anxiety isn’t a death sentence, for many, it’s actually a clue to understanding the deeper process behind what makes them tick and thrive in the world.

My Philosophy

Areas of expertise

Life is a powerful teacher, and what I have come to understand is that feelings stretched too thin can be painful, isolating, and confusing, leaving us hungry for the support of someone who understands. I consider it a privilege to help people face the curve-balls life throws, and be part of their decision to improve their lives. There is no greater fulfillment than sharing in the satisfaction and peace that emerges through the growth process.

Your life

How I can help

My approach is a holistic one that includes understanding how you think, feel, and live your life so to paint a more complete picture of where your true needs lie. Our work will include teaching you about current brain science that impacts how you cope with life’s challenges, a look at your past and how it impacts your present situation, as well as cognitive and behavioral strategies (CBT) to help you manage your life more effectively.


What I Do Best

My Services

As a licensed clinical psychologist with more than 25 years of experience helping people cope with life more effectively, I have trained in evidence-based treatment methods that work. My areas of expertise include individual and couples psychotherapy for adolescents and adults who are living with anxiety and facing a variety of life challenges. I also offer life coaching and workshops aimed at helping clients reach specific targeted goals.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy offers an in depth look at patterns that are holding you back while providing a supportive environment to learn and implement healthier coping strategies, and forge a path to happiness.

Coaching

Coaching offers a collaborative environment where your goals, and your path to reaching them, is realized step by step.

Speaking

I am available to speak to groups on a variety of topics of interest. To discuss your group’s needs and interests, please contact me.


Nuts and Bolts

Unless otherwise arranged for, therapy and coaching sessions meet weekly and sessions are 50 minutes long. Early on, we establish a treatment focus which lays the foundation for our future sessions. It also acts as a benchmark against which progress is measured. Together, we define your core strengths and goals for future change. All of which makes living with anxiety, depression or frustrations easier to manage as you grow into the healthier version of yourself that you long for.

This process begins with an initial consultation where we can assess our mutual compatibility. To set up an appointment, or to inquire about my services or areas of expertise, please contact me here.
