I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Connecticut and a Nationally Certified Counselor. I work with women, men, couples, and families.
I specialize in Midlife Transitions. Specifically, I help women, men, and couples unlock and discover their authentic selves. Transition entails change; as a result, fear of the unknown can be most problematic. The Chinese symbol for crisis signifies “danger” and “opportunity”. Both are true for people that are in midlife. Growing older, becoming an empty nester, caring for aging parents, dealing with relationship issues, unsure about the meaning of your life, concern about the effects of menopause, feeling unsure about your identity, and considering a brand new career are some of the major issues that crop up at this point in midlife. It is common for people in midlife to feel stuck, unsure about the future, and to grieve through the losses that are felt at this time.
I changed the direction of my life in 1999. I decided that seeking out a career that will bring about my aliveness is what I needed at this point in my midlife. In 2005, after completing graduate school and a one-year comprehensive internship, as a Mental Health Clinician, I became a Licensed Psychotherapist. I understand what this stage of life is all about as I continue to grow and change all the time.
I offer a Support/Therapy Group for Midlife Women every Thursday evening from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. I can be reached at (860) 561-4021.
