In December 2009, I “retired” after 26 years of working with clients who are “over 50” and their caregivers in a hospital setting. Now in full time Private Practice, I work with adults of all ages and children/adolescents who are bereaved.
My interests evolved over the years from child psychology (e.g., children’s concepts of death) to thanantology (death) and grief, to developmental problems throughout the lifespan (e.g., transition into retirement) and problems associated with aging (e.g. late life depression, Alzheimer’s Disease). I am also currently enjoying my work with students at a local university.
A developmental focus continues to help me help clients sort out viable options for themselves, such as in the areas of stress management and problems coping (work and personal), emotional trauma, communication problems, adjustment and loss issues, death and dying, feeling “overwhelmed,” self-esteem and empowerment issues; and more often than not when several problems are present at one time. I enjoy working with clients as well as conducting psychoeducational workshops in small or large group settings. I also have experience in conducting professional training workshops in my identified areas of practice.
