It is my goal to support you in improving your quality of life, whatever that means to you. Like many therapists, I treat mood disorders such as anxiety and depression; however, I also specialize in Life Coaching, and utilize elements of Life Coaching in my work with clients. I specialize in working with professional women and college and graduate students in accessing the support they need, navigating professional spaces, working through issues of Depression, Anxiety and self-esteem, and relationship issues. I am a Licensed Therapist, and a Life Coach.
With over 20 years of professional experience, I work with clients by utilizing, CBT, Strengths Based Perspective, and Solutions Focused approaches. Through my Life Coaching I offer techniques and concrete steps to tackle the challenges that hold you back personally and professionally.
I am holistic in my approach, meaning I consider all aspects of you. I will help you identify, challenge and reframe the negative beliefs that have adversely affected you, while providing you with concrete techniques to improve your current quality of life.
