"In the well of our being is being well"

Our goal is to help you reconnect with your innate ability to grow toward wholeness and healing, bringing…

  • More aliveness in your relationships and daily living,

  • Confidence -- greater clarity about your strengths, while reducing limiting beliefs,

  • Less need to protect yourself as you engage authentically in being seen, heard, and accepted.

  • Opportunities to hone skills that can be used in various settings in your life

  • DBT

  • Anxiety reduction

  • Adolescent psychology

  • Crisis responses

  • Leadership skills/management

For 30 years I had the privilege of being the Director of Project Return, a 7-bed group home for teenaged girls in crisis in Westport.  During that time we provided a home for over 160 girls.


I worked with the girls and coached and supported parents in an effort to reunify families; interfaced with schools, therapists, and other resources. I hired, trained, and coached staff.  We were a training site for graduate schools of social work.  Currently, I am a social worker for Willows Pediatrics in Westport.


I listen deeply and bring you a wealth of experience and hard-earned wisdom, offering... 

  • Empathy for how hard it is to parent,

  • A reservoir of skills and knowledge of what works with teenagers,

  • Understanding of the needs of teenagers: how to stay connected while setting healthy boundaries,

  • The difficulty of raising children in an affluent community,

  • A chance to reflect on how we were parented and what that means for our parenting,

  • Tools to reduce anxiety and to navigate blind spots and roadblocks,

  • A deep knowledge of life.


   My goal is to partner with you to find ways to affirm, and utilize your strengths.


I look forward to talking with you.

Being Well with your Self, with your Work, and in your Soul


As a therapist or coach, I bring you a wealth of experience and wisdom.  I can help you deal with important issues you may be struggling with as you grow toward "being well" in three areas:

  • At work, an increased ability to resolve conflict and facilitate growth in others. I have a background as an organization effectiveness consultant and leadership coach.

  • Less anxiety and greater self-worth/confidence.  Trained as a psychotherapist, I have also worked through my own mid-life struggles with depression and anxiety.


  • Spiritual wellbeing:  A deepening spiritual life and/or a strengthened sense of meaning or purpose in your life.  A recently ordained minister, I have a disciplined meditation and contemplative prayer practice.

You will find me a consummate listener,
helping you listen to your own wisdom and strengths.
