Announcement icon I am seeing patients by video and phone during the covid-19 pandemic.
I HAVE IMMEDIATE OPENINGS FOR (video or phone sessions) and would be honored to support you during this time of uncertainty. Realizing that where you are in life is not where you intended to be and how you are feeling is not how you intended to feel, is the first step. Removing your self imposed limitations and addressing the thoughts and behaviors that brought you to this place is some of the work that I do with my clients. My life experiences, along with my education and on going training has afforded me a unique ability to connect with my patients, while we explore their past, understand their present and design their future. +
We have all created our personal "Story" from unique life experiences and choices we have made and the meanings we have given to them. After the death of my husband and unborn child My Story began with the educated and empathetic therapists as my guide, "My Story" became my "Change Motivator." Is it time to identify your change motivator?
Using an intimate, one- on- one approach, I aim to bring a fresh perspective to the traditional therapeutic experience. I offer both a conventional or a unique water front office setting, with flexible day time, evening and weekend appointments, that are tailored to my clients needs. PHONE CONSULTS AND SKYPE ARE RECOMMENDED DURING THIS TIME OF UNCERTAINTY.
