We live in a fast-paced, complex society, oftentimes alongside a very demanding culture. In addition to the incredible pressure to succeed, it also creates unique challenges to living fully; finding meaning and joy in work, family and friendships.
As a counselor in private practice for the past 9 years I have seen the cultural and economic landscape change, and the pressure this has put on those already struggling; especially young families. As a result I have specialized my practice to work with many of the problems and issues that have arisen as a result of this changing climate.
My area of specialization also includes working with people who experience chronic pain and illness and its impact on daily living. I utilize a variety of techniques to treat it, including meditation, guided imagery, stress-management, self-acceptance, and positive coping skills. I have given presentations at local colleges on dealing with chronic conditions, as well as eating disorders.
My services also include consulting with small businesses, institutions, and facilities that are looking to improve their communications and enhance their management and leadership skills. Job frustration, burn-out, and employer/employee interpersonal conflict are problem areas for many groups, one that can easily be managed with the help of a trained and licensed counselor in the field.
