I specialize in depression and anxiety associated with chronic pain and illness. I specialize in helping clients overcome the difficulties associated with life changes that take place as a result of medical conditions. I enjoy giving my clients the “tools” to overcome their conditions to lead purposeful, functional, healthy and joy-filled lives.
The people suffering from chronic pain and major illness are often not only battling the disease but the impact on their families. The impacts are great. They are job loss or change, financial issues, marriage difficulties, family dynamic shifts, anxiety, and depression. Most patients have one or more of these impacts to deal with at the same time they are dealing with their condition. The combination can be very overwhelming and difficult to understand. My focus is to help the chronic pain patient, and major illness patients learn to cope with the new found challenges of their condition. Together, we will explore the tools that can be used to learn to cope. I believe together we can make a very difficult time easier.
After having careers in the medical and academic fields, I went back to college to earn my MSW. My focus was to develop the skills necessary to help people in the community. My mission is to give back to the community and to help those who need to overcome the paralyzing effects of depression, anxiety, dysfunctional thinking rather caused by medical conditions, academic stresses or just life stresses. I am here at Lakeside Counseling and Wellness to help clients achieve an improved mental, physical and spiritual self.
