You are feeling out of control. The kids are driving you crazy.  Your job is driving you crazy. Late, overwhelmed, distracted, pressured. Angry, all.the.bleeping.time. Or numb. Numb works, too.

Welcome to the party. Now, let’s see what we can do about this.

I work with women who have found themselves smack in the middle of adulthood with lousy relationships; lovely, but demanding children; and a nagging sense that things might get better if we deal with all that stuff that happened before. You know, all that stuff we haven’t had the time or energy to process, yet.

Don’t worry if you are all over the place, I can keep up. I’ll listen, try to help sort things out with sometimes practical solution oriented thoughts, sometimes psychological theories, or sometimes metaphors and parables that resonate with what we are talking about. My years of experience working with survivors of abuse are at your disposal to help figure out ways to make your present life one worth living.
