My professional experience includes working with adolescents, adults and couples dealing with depression, anxiety, grief , chronic illness, PTSD, family conflict, relationship issues, women's issues, life transition and pet loss grief .
Life is hard sometimes and it's OK to need help along the way! Therapy is a great place to get the unbiased support you need. So many people live their lives feeling effects of depression, anxiousness or loneliness, feeling stuck, lost, or that something just isn't sitting right. Those feelings don't have to be carried around with you every day.

I approach psychotherapy from a holistic & trauma-informed lens and help clients who are struggling with grief , anxiety, sexual and family of origin trauma, medical challenges, depression, life transitions, and identity issues.
Sometimes the circumstances of our lives are so challenging that they require more resources than we have available. At other times, we find ourselves bumping into the same issues over and over again and don’t understand why. We try our best to respond differently, but can’t seem to free ourselves from repeating cycles of fear, uncertainty, and emotional pain. Seeking therapy is a daring step. I honor the strength and courage that it took you to get here. If we work together, it will be my job to make the process as gentle and effective as possible.

Some of my treatment specialties are depression, grief , stress, anxiety, relationship struggles, communication, coping after major life changes, coping with chronic illness, trauma, aging, and caregiver burden.
Therapy can heal emotional pain, improve relationships, and increase self-understanding. Although starting therapy can be intimidating, it can make a big difference in your ability to cope with challenges or make sense of what has happened so you can move forward. I will help you feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and feelings, and together, we will work to understand how you came to be where you are, and be proactive in making positive changes that help you get where you want to be. I'm invested in supporting you as you create the life you want to live.

I do have additional training to support challenges related to grief and trauma.
If you are a parent looking for support in managing a challenge with your child, tween or teenager or if you are parents looking to align on parenting strategies, I am here to offer you support. Inevitably, difficult moments arise as they are indicators of learning or growth that wants to happen for your child, your relationship or for your family as a whole. Every child or teen and every family is unique in their dynamics and difficulties so, I believe this work needs to be collaborative to find the solutions that will be effective specifically for you and your family.

You deserve the space and time to learn how to thrive and heal after adversity, especially after trauma and loss .
I believe that our problems don't define us - how we handle them does. You may feel lost because life may not have unfolded as planned, which triggers anxiety, depression, or overwhelming grief . However, with a bit of time and self-reflection, it's entirely possible to build or rebuild a life that is different from what you envisioned. I believe we possess innate strengths derived from early life experiences that shaped us, and I see therapy as a collaborative space to build on those qualities so that you can live the life you dream of living.

I work with individuals, couples, and families on issues including grief and loss , anxiety and depression, loneliness, self-esteem, relationships, and intimacy.
I am passionate about helping people lead the life they want and deserve. We all need to be seen, heard, and be accepted. But, when these needs are not met we may experience loneliness, anxiety, and depression, which stops us from leading a meaningful life. My diverse life experiences as a top security screener, a specialized groups coordinator, a world traveler, and a philosopher, combined with my professional trainings, enable me with a unique perspective and knowledge on how to nurture, support, and promote a life worth living. I specialize working with adults, teens, and couples, and families.

Are you experiencing anxiety, grief , anger, low self-esteem, struggles with social skills, nervous habits, sadness, loneliness, low energy, sleeplessness, hopelessness, lack of ambition.
Our sessions are a safe and warm space for clients of all ages to feel comfortable to open up about difficult topics. There, they can honor those feelings and experiences allowing for a sense of acceptance and the ability to work together towards a purpose-filled path. I have been blessed to engage with clients in each session as we tap into their inner self and learn how to express themselves in a healthy and creative manner. We laugh together, try out new techniques and learn more about the thoughts that drive their feelings and actions, build their decision making skills and learn respectful communication as they build automony.

A genuine relationship between people is one in which you are comfortable to be yourself and in which the other clearly sees your potential and supports its growth. Compassion, acceptance, comfort, respect and safety is what I strive to create in a relationship with a client. This encourages a deepening trust to develop while allowing the work towards true healing to begin. People often come to therapy searching for relief from depression, anxiety, grief and difficult relationships. I have extensive experience working with adults, couples and teens.

Recovering from loss is painful. Loss of a loved one, a relationship, health...there are many different losses in life. I can help. With 20 years as a therapist, including 12 years of Hospice and a Grief Recovery certified Specialist, I have a deep appreciation of the challenges associated with life' losses. Starting with my years working with Adult Survivors of Sexual Abuse and facilitating groups of both Survivors and those suffering from Domestic Violence, I have since worked with families in crisis and individuals challenged with various debilitating issues.

Grief Therapists
Grief and Bereavement is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.
