These Are My Specialties and Areas of Expertise:
When adults move from one phase of life to another or when something unexpected happens in their life, they can feel like the rug has been pulled out from underneath them. They may feel lost and need some support to move through all of the changes and new experiences. Some examples of life transitions include divorce, empty nest, job changes, retirement, age milestones/getting older, dealing with an illness, graduating college, moving, death of a loved one, marriage or new relationship, birth of a child and aging parents. Therapy can help with both bringing in more meaning and joy into your life and with navigating the various changes in your life. I will support you in creating ways to relieve stress and find meaning and purpose through these times of uncertainty and change.
Everyone experiences grief in their own unique way. We need a place where we can be heard, and a place where we can express all of our feelings. I provide a safe environment where you can process and discuss your experiences with grief. I help normalize what you are going through, so that there can be more self-acceptance and understanding. Grief is not just about death. Grief and loss can take place in many areas of our lives. Since the pandemic, we have all experienced grief in one way or another.

Women’s Empowerment includes connecting back to yourself, creating better self-care and self-compassion, setting boundaries, increasing self-esteem, reducing stress and discovering unrealized hopes and dreams. My area of focus is on helping you start to look at what is important to you, who you are and what you want. Society and upbringing have often encouraged women to be people pleasers, caregivers and the caretaker to others. As a result, women may lose focus on what is important to them. Women may feel guilty and selfish when they do take care of themselves. They may then return to their focus on other’s wants and needs. What results is feeling burned out, lost and exhausted. Therapy is a wonderful and safe place where you can begin to think about what is important to you outside of your many roles and responsibilities. Empowerment can mean shining the light on yourself and stepping into who you are meant to be in this lifetime. Please click here for more information about my women’s empowerment services.
