Grieving the death of a loved one, the loss of a relationship, a decline in health, or any other life transition can be a lonely, painful, and confusing time. Your friends and family may want you to be "back to normal" but you may feel anything but "normal." I can help you to heal from your losses whether recent or in the past by providing therapeutic counseling in a safe nurturing environment. I worked in hospice for 11 years as a grief therapist. I have seen people not only heal from their losses but find new meaning and hope.

I offer client-centered supportive & insight-oriented therapy, & enjoy connecting deeply with people at all stages of recovery from psychological worries—from those interested in trying therapy for the first time to folks returning for another period of healing, exploration, & growth. I have a warm, non-judgmental temperament that allows people to share what brings them into session, even when the issues may feel overwhelming or hard to talk about.

Approximately 50% of my clients have an addiction or are friends/family of an addicted individual. I am able to help you assess the addiction, understand how it is affecting you and your family, and help you develop a plan for recovery. If you are already in recovery, your counseling can further help you understand any underlying issues that may contribute to or drive the compulsions. This may include such things as anxiety, depression, life stressors, trauma, to name a few. I have a positive approach that focuses on strengths and success, building on those assets, more than pathology.

I believe the therapeutic relationship is the crucible within which clients are helped to heal their pain. I take an active role in the therapeutic process by engaging with the client so he or she feels understood, respected, and seen. The feelings of shame, fear, anxiety and other painful emotions are worked through so the client feels taken care of. The clients I treat often come into therapy in a survival mode. I help people in moving from survival to a life of thriving and self love. Dysfunctional behaviors creates people who feel inauthentic, even to themselves. I assist people in developing true authenticity and a real self.
