I specialize in counseling young professionals who have decided to take greater charge of their lives. Integrating my life experiences, I work with young adults who are facing relationship, social, academic, financial, and professional issues, while trying to establish their independence and remain connected with their parents. My work is client-centered self-improvement for those who want to learn how to take control and make better decisions that will serve them well for the rest of their lives.
In The Defining Decade, author Meg Jay writes about why your twenties matter and how 80% of life’s most substantial and lasting events – those that lead to career success, family fortune, choice of partners, personal happiness or lack thereof – usually take place by age 35. For many young adults, this decade can be paralyzing in the face of so much information, so many choices, so many distractions, and what seems like relentless uncertainty.
Common issues include:
- Managing anxiety
- Working through depression
- Modifying obsessive and compulsive behaviors
- Identifying self-destructive patterns and behaviors
- Healing longstanding wounds
- Expanding self–awareness
- Better understanding of relationships
- Fostering healthier connections with others
- Looking at career choices and understanding what fits, what doesn’t, and why
- Identifying strengths and modeling how to think about life choices and perspectives
I draw upon my range of experiences in business, design, and clinical practice to support clients in these areas where professional and personal issues are interconnected. My role in counseling can begin and evolve as a therapist, mentor, advisor, or coach – all with the commitment to make the most of my client’s time, and focus on what is needed to accomplish healthy personal and professional goals.
