Talking about your life in a supportive, confidential space can give you a clearer sense of the patterns that may be leading you away from happiness and satisfaction. Together, we can explore the beliefs you have internalized about yourself and the world. Developing these insights builds greater self-awareness and gives you the ability to make thoughtful choices that will place you on the path to positive change.

In a healthcare career that spans more than 35 years, I have helped people find meaning, purpose and direction during major life transitions and beyond.

Here are just some of the major issues I have successfully helped my clients address:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Low Self-Esteem

  • Post-Traumatic
    Stress Disorder (PTSD)

  • Grief and Loss

  • Relationship Issues

  • Eating Disorders

  • Addictions


Throughout my career I have worked with hundreds of people struggling to rebuild their lives in the wake of a brain injury. For most, the process of recovery feels slow, confusing and frustrating. If you have suffered a brain injury, you may be dealing with hidden symptoms that others can’t see or understand. This can cause pain and disruption in your closest relationships, including spouses, partners, children and co-workers.

I am a trained speech pathologist with a thorough understanding of brain functioning, as well as a former clinical director of brain injury centers in California and Utah. I have provided effective psychotherapy for hundreds of clients dealing with brain injuries – and I am ready to put my expertise to work for you.

Right now you may feel disoriented, lonely and afraid. You may sense that no one really understands what has happened to you, since you may look fine on the outside, yet feel different on the inside.

Brain injury can affect us in so many areas, including:

  • Attention

  • Concentration

  • Memory

  • Planning and Organization

  • Low Self-Esteem

  • Sexual desire and Intimacy

  • Depression/Anxiety

  • Headaches

  • Personality changes

  • Mood swings

  • Fatigue

  • Balance

These issues can be troubling, even infuriating at first. But based on my years of experience, I know they can be overcome.

If you are an individual struggling with the effects of a brain injury, I will help you create a new life that offers meaning, purpose, and satisfaction.

If you are the spouse or partner of someone who has suffered a brain injury, I will offer you strategies for dealing with your own grief and restoring a sense of closeness and cooperation between you.

Clients in the Seattle/Eastside area may meet with me in my professional offices. I am also available to meet with those living outside the area via video conference for consultation and education.
