Our world has gotten more complicated and stressful. Often we need additional supports to parent and help others cope with things like academic pressure, anxiety, depression, social skills, self-esteem and relationship issues to name a few. Each child and parent is different and my goal is to work with you to find out together how to manage the transitions and challenges of what is happening in your life and theirs.

The different life stages bring their own challenges and needs. I have experience with adults from young adulthood to the end of the spectrum at the end of life. I have had the opportunity to work individually, with couples and families throughout those different stages. From working with young adults as they build their independence and make life changing decisions, to parenting or caregiving for parents, then later in life coping with illness or changes in roles. Each stage has its amazing opportunities for growth but also their challenges and it helps to have someone walk along side and help guide, process and support us through them. I consider it a privilege to be allowed to be part of the journey.
