Are you finding it difficult to manage the many roles in your life? It can be challenging when handling the multiple demands of husband, wife, employer, employee, caretaker, mentor, sibling, friend, volunteer and neighbor etc. Sometimes, it is hard to breathe because our minds are constantly thinking about what we have not accomplished for the day, the week and even for the future. This anxiety can impact the way that we navigate through life and can also affect our relationships. Through the therapeutic process, we can explore the things that are causing you the most stress, and work through those difficulties. This is for you. Together, we will focus on the past in order to help you explain current life struggles while addressing the present in an effort to cope and prepare for the future. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with more than 15 years experience, I have worked with many individuals, couples and families. I believe in utilizing a combination of systems, cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic therapies. I am also passionate about utilizing holistic approaches to create balance and natural healing. I have both experience and skill in working with the following concerns: Anxiety and Depression (including post-partum depression), Chronic Pain, Relationship Challenges (couples and families) , Grief and Loss, Domestic Violence (victim or offender), Sexual abuse (victim or offender), Parenting Challenges, Trauma, Cultural Concerns, Phase of Life Changes and last but not least, Job Related Stress.
