I specialize in Compassion Fatigue, Trauma Recovery, Pet Loss & Bereavement , and Addiction Recovery.

Have you suffered the loss of a pet or loved one and struggling to find someone who “gets it”? I am here to help with these and more. We have all been faced with major changes and sacrifices since 2020. Some changes have left scares and holes in us.

If any of this sounds familiar to you, residual, unprocessed feelings from the past may be holding you back from living the life you desire. At Onward Healing, we specialize in using EMDR therapy to help you heal the wounds of your past, to enrich your experience of the present, and to clear a path onward.

Life presents obstacles, expected and unexpected. These experiences can be tough, especially if you feel there isn't someone you can share with. Even if we have a solid support network, we can face stigma and personal barriers that prevent us from opening up. Therapy can create a safe space to address internal or external conflict, seek personal growth, and restore balance in our lives. I love working with teens, adults, and senior adults. I am most effective with clients presenting with depression & anxiety, grief , life transitions, and family/relational conflict by prioritizing stabilization, managing symptoms, and building hope.

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.
