I have evolved through 40+ yrs work as a nurse, then LCSW psychotherapist, into a very human being, wise to experiences in our families, culture, & context that shape us, cause anxiety, trauma, & dysfunction. I will help you be aware & connected on the inside to your self, & on the outside to others. We will find what nurtures, enlightens, & sustains you, so you can solve your problems & see possibilities. Empowered, your truth will guide you to make conscious choices in keeping with your values. You will grow in responsibility, & finding meaning, joy, & love.
I work from the point of identified conflict, with goal to heal from trauma, loss, unhealthy defenses & addictive patterns. You will learn coping skills, so difficulty won't defeat. I do psycho-education re psychiatric disorders, medications, & boundaries.
