Improve communication. Restore harmony.

Whether you are facing stressors at home, at work, at school or with your health, I can help you develop strategies to enhance coping. I work with couples and families to identify interpersonal stressors to develop techniques to improve communication and restore harmony. I work with teenagers and young adults on issues of independence, self esteem and conflict resolution. I have extensive experience working with family caregivers facing illness, advance care planning, death/dying and bereavement. I work with women to enhance their ability to cope with stressors across the lifespan. I use EMDR to resolve trauma.
