Having become a therapist only after my children were grown, I bring to my practice a

great deal of life experience in addition to professional training. My therapy practice has tended to focus on issues that cause depression and anxiety, on the difficulties we

experience coping with life transitions, with aging, with grief, and with loss of all kinds. I

have found that life presents us with many challenges, and that there are times when

empathy and an objective ear can help us find clarity, direction, and healing. If you ever

experience a need for some extra help for a while, just know that it is available here.
