What is unique about the way I work is that I'm trained as both a Life Coach and Therapist, so my approach is strength based. This means that I work with you to clarify which aspects of your life you wish to bring into focus and we build on what is already working well. I have been a counselor for over 30 years, 20 of them at Cornell University and a Life Coach since 2004. I now have a private practice combining both skill sets. My specialties include working with clients with time management issues using Life Coaching & mindfulness based therapies.
My primary area of specialty is helping people who struggle with attaining their goals due to problems with time management, difficulty setting priorities and poor organizational skills (executive function issues) Many of my clients have ADHD or other learning challenges. I also work with clients dealing with issues of loss and grief.
Besides practicing as a therapist, I am an AHDH Coach & Dissertation Coach. Many of my clients are graduate students who have become stuck somewhere in the long process of earning their doctorate. We work collaboratively and by focusing on their strengths as well as supporting their weaknesses.
