"Sometimes I lie awake at night, and ask,

'Where have I gone wrong?'

Then a voice says to me,

'This is going to take more than one night.'"

-- Charles M. Schultz quotes, "Peanuts" creator, 1922-2000


Life can be challenging, frustrating and just plain difficult.  Are career, health, relationship or other problems getting you down?  Do you seem more depressed or anxious?   If so, I can help!  During my 25+ years in private practice, I have helped thousands of people deal with just about every problem you can imagine.  My focus is on solving the problem(s) YOU identify that need work.  We'll talk about your goals and the obstacles you face.  Then, we'll discuss ways to move beyond them and forward in your life.  Sometimes just receiving a different point of view from an unbiased professional can provide clairty and the impetus needed to make important changes. Sometimes, you need to make changes.

I help people cope with difficult situations, solve problems, improve careers, manage stress, resolve conflicts, develop stronger relationships, and feel more confident.  My approach is eclectic; I choose strategies which best fit the needs of each client.  I am also supportive and empathetic but, above all, pragmatic.  I help you solve problems, not just listen to them.  I welcome the opportunity to assist you in improving your life.

One client said, "I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a no nonsense approach to finding the right career, unleashing potential, and maximizing personal growth."
