People seek my help for a variety of challenges. Some have weight and exercise issues. Others experience insomnia, depression, infertility, loneliness, or chronic pain.

Some people seek coaching when their life’s partner or other family member is disabled, mentally or physically. They may feel too guilty to set limits, express anger, or make arrangements for respite or permanent care.

Work becomes the sore point for many: never worked, fired, or frustrated with a current job. I help clients explore their talents and dreams. Together we draft a resume and role-play before the interview.

Some clients are stuck in their financial arena: compulsive spending, getting out of debt, sharing expenses with a business or romantic partner. We look at warning signs and set up guideposts for progress.

If you’re stuck, I can help, using techniques such as coaching, role-playing, directed activities, and hypnotherapy. Feel more in control of your life. Get started today.
