About this pro

Humans are not stagnant beings. We are meant to evolve, grow, and adapt to what Life hands us, even if it's painful. I specialize in working with men and women who are struggling with midlife obstacles -- whether it's marital discord, empty nest syndrome, lack of support, or simply wanting MORE out of their lives. I help them notice and redesign old thought patterns and behaviors that don't fit anymore, so they can view things from a much healthier perspective. Let me help guide you through your transition in a safe, warm, and successful way!

How did you get started in this business?

Challenging others to grow and find a life that makes them happier is what is at the heart of my work as a therapist.  Because I’ve been through several life transitions of my own and have found peace and deeper meaning, I enjoy helping clients (particularly women 35+) who are struggling with one or more life obstacles — whether it’s marital conflict, feeling lost as a parent, questioning a career choice, or those who simply want MORE out of life. I have a very warm and relaxed energy and I excel at helping men, women, and couples finally pinpoint what it is that’s not working and then assisting them in developing new solutions to get their lives back on track.


What types of customers have you worked with?

Men, women and couples (21+)


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Helping to provide life-altering, brain-exploding, a-ha moments to people that get them to see their situation in a whole different light. This automatically puts them on the trajectory toward moving forward.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a company in your area of expertise?

It may take a few tries to find the therapist with whom you really connect -- but it's worth the time, because you'll be sharing some private and emotionally sensitive things with this person. Having a warm, safe, therapeutic relationship with the right counselor will be what motivates you to keep coming, open up, and make progress. How will you know when you've found the right fit?  Assuming that they're well qualified in the issues you're dealing with, it's when you get a 'good vibe' from them and they take the time to really listen and show you that they 'get' you.


What questions should customers think through before talking to companies about their needs?

Because the therapeutic relationship is paramount to your success in counseling, you'll need to ask yourself what qualities are going to be important to you in this relationship.
