I work with adults across the lifespan, but I most love helping adults 65 and over achieve a valued, meaningful quality of life. During my years in training and practice, my research and interests have primarily focused on interventions that take your unique needs, desires, and strengths into account. In addition, I am a member of the Association for Adult Development and Aging division of the American Counseling Association, as well as a part of the Practice initiative and subcommittee of the Older Adults Task Force. With others in these groups, I strive to promote greater awareness of and access to mental health counseling services for older adults, advocacy and empowerment for older adults, funding for mental health services through Medicare, and the creation of programs designed to address resilience, hope, and connection. On the side, I enjoy sharing time with my canine "co-therapist" Gordon at local retirement communities for pet therapy sessions! Gordon' has earned himself quite a reputation and is a show-stealer when it comes to unconditional snuggles!
Contact me today to schedule a FREE 15 minute phone consultation and to discuss your concerns and the path toward a better quality of life. The life that you deserve.
During our initial session, we will meet for approximately 75-90 minutes and get to know one another. This is a great opportunity for you to interview me to determine if you would like to begin our collaborative process toward resilience and hope. First sessions are $90.
During subsequent sessions, we will meet weekly or biweekly for approximately 50-60 minutes. These sessions can be structured or unstructured, and allow you a safe space to explore uncomfortable emotions, talk about existential issues, or problem-solve, and then begin setting goals for a more meaningful and valued life direction. Sessions are $80.
I look forward to hearing from you and setting up our first appointment!
