Addressing concerns of late adolescence and adulthood
Life continually challenges us. Change comes in relationships with our families, our friends, at school and at work; these changes are often inevitable and unavoidable. For whatever reason these changes can disrupt our equilibrium and may even leave us feeling lost, inadequate, and incompetent. For more than 30 years I have worked with adults and older adolescents to help you develop ways to more effectively manage the challenges and transitions that occur in your life. Together, we will examine ways to help you cope better with the changes in your life. We will consider ways that you can respond to new challenges and explore whether you are inadvertently holding yourself back, hindering your own efforts to respond effectively to the challenges you are facing. My goal is to help you reduce the distress you are experiencing, to better understand your reactions to the events creating the distress, to make constructive adjustments to changes in your life, and ultimately, to feel greater mastery in handling new challenges.

Identity Problems
It is not uncommon to discover we are not who we think we are. Whether that is with gender, or sexual orientation, or race and ethnic concerns, or even with what we think we are good at. This “surprise” can really disrupt our sense of self and leave us feeling lost and misunderstood. I will work with you to help you examine these issues, understand the questions and concerns you are experiencing, and work to reach a place of having more confidence and stability with who you want to be.

My approach to therapy
Therapy is about helping you learn about yourself, how you think and act, and how at times your ways of thinking and acting may contribute to the problems and dissatisfaction you are experiencing. My goal is to help you “connect the dots” so that through greater understanding, you feel more confidence and less distress, develop more skills, and become better at utilizing your strengths to gain more satisfaction with your life.
