Grief Counseling, Relationship Issues & Communication, Meditation and Somatic Work.
As we move through each day, it is easy to be distracted or pulled away from our center. Therapy is time set aside to slow down and examine what is meaningful. We all get stuck and can feel lost in life. Emotions can overwhelm us and we can feel disconnected and alone. Even, unsure how to move forward- not knowing the next step. When we come together in a supportive environment, healing does take place and shifts do happen in our lives. Reach out to me for a free phone consult to see if counseling is right for you.

Whether struggling with conflict, communication difficulties, infidelity or loss of sexual interest, I can help.
When the passion of your relationship plateaus, what's next? When your relationship reaches milestones such as the birth or departure of children, are you struggling with the adjustment? How strong is the foundation of your friendship? Do you feel that your partner understands you in essential ways? Many couples imagine that conflict indicates relationship trouble especially when certain issues repeatedly surface with no forward movement. Research proves this need not be the case. Conflict in relationship is normal; it's how you manage conflict that matters. There are clear and learnable skills that will deepen your friendship and love.

With over 30 years experience, my approach is holistic integrating the connection between mind, body, heart and spirit. Certified in EMDR therapy by the EMDR International Association, I find EMDR to be a powerful tool that I use along with other treatment modalities to facilitate healing. I specialize in working with trauma, eating disorders, addiction recovery, grief , depression, anxiety and relationship issues. I especially work with clients who have trust and abandonment issues due to childhood trauma, neglect or abusive parents. Early dysfunctional family patterns and lack of nurturing can affect self-esteem, intimate relationships and work performance.

I can help if you are struggling with: anxiety, depression or other mood issues; aging or life-threatening illness; or relationship difficulties; or the consequences of living with serious mental disorders. I help people affected by loss including people dealing with grief , facing death , or serious illness, but if you think of your own situation you might realize that loss is playing a role in your search for a therapist. I also work with people who aren't deeply troubled, but are searching for growth in their work, relationships, or who are feeling the absence of a spiritual center in their lives.

Do you feel overwhelmed with worries, regrets, or negative emotions? Or a feeling you can’t shake that things don’t feel as good as they should? These feelings can hold us back from creating the changes we want in our life. Transitions can feel unsettling, affecting our relationships, our sense of self, our work, and our wellbeing. Facing these moments can be opportunities for healing that create a deeper sense of peace and contentment. Grief and loss , times of increased stress (hello pandemic!), challenges in our relationships with others and ourselves are just some areas in which we can work together to find new perspective.
