Do you feel like you are: Afraid of the uncertainty of the future due to a life transition and/or feeling lost or confused about who you are now? / Struggling in your job, relationships, and other facets of your life due to past trauma? / On an emotional rollercoaster or numb from grief, perhaps feeling unable to talk to anyone about what you are living through or perhaps feeling that your grief is being disenfranchised? / Unable to accomplish what you would like because anxiety is in the driver’s seat? / Less emotionally tolerant than before, but don’t quite know why? I get it.

The transitions of life during young adulthood, mid-life or in seniors years, provide us with challenges and opportunities in defining and strengthening our sense of self and our relationships.

I facilitate difficult conversations in changing relationships or around family's role in caring for elders. Using a holistic approach, I focus on the total well-being of individuals and families with whom I work.

I especially welcome those facing life-altering or terminal illnesses, seniors, healthcare workers, and trans and nonbinary folks.
Grief. It's a word heavy with emotion that often conjures images of loss, sadness, and heartache. But grief is so much more than that. It's a rollercoaster of emotions that is inevitable at some point in life. When we think of grief, we often think of the loss of a loved one. While undoubtedly a significant kind of it, grief can take many forms. It can be the witnessing of another's pain, loss of a job, a relationship, a dream unrealized. It can be the end of an era, the closing of a chapter, the diagnosis of life-altering illness, and the shattering of expectations. No matter its form, grief can often feel deeply isolating.

I have 5+ years of experience working with ADHD & Autism in children, teenagers, adults, seniors, families and couples.
As a neurodivergent person with ADHD myself, I know some of the difficulties you may face. If you have ADHD and/or are Autistic, you’ve probably spent many years trying to fight your own brain and force yourself to act “normal,” but find this never works in the long run. Or perhaps you have someone in your life who is neurodivergent, and are struggling meet their needs and your own. You may experience painful emotions, difficulty understanding yourself, and frustrating personal relationships. Navigating life can be overwhelming when you're neurodivergent, but I firmly believe there is hope, and I want you to feel hopeful too.
