I offer psychotherapy & a relational view regarding anxiety, grief / loss , body image/self esteem/ weight issues, intimacy problems, divorce, pre-marital, LGBT issues, and military related issues.
Frustrated? Unhappy? Want some insight and change? I offer an encouraging approach to help you explore your world in a therapeutic environment. I believe that everyone is the expert of their own experience; you have lived your life longer than I have known you. I often use the metaphor of being a flashlight in a dark cave, shedding light on different things, however, you, as the client are in the driver's seat; I am in the passenger seat, as a co-driver. Together, we will explore your personal meanings and experiences while making larger connections to your goals. I invite you to our journey together in creating new meaning.

Have you lost your footing? I specialize in traumatic grief counseling and reducing the negative effects of traumatic events. Sudden losses can throw you off center. Unattended losses and past traumas can leave you feeling disconnected from the people you love. I use EMDR therapy to help people make sense of their past losses so they can live more joyfully in the present. A certified facilitator of The Daring Way, I use the research published by Dr. Brené Brown to help people brave connection and claim their sense of worthiness and belonging.

My theoretical approach is adaptable, be it helping to cope with recent trauma or grief , or reducing the severity of chronic conditions such as low self esteem, anxiety and depression.
I believe that when you first begin therapy, you hope to make changes in yourself that will improve your life. Possible changes might include ending the feeling that you are basically bad, or always at fault, or never good enough, or unlovable. You are aware that such feelings have caused you to lose valued relationships, caused you failure in school or at work, and possibly caused you to behave in ways you regret. If you are usually depressed, anxious, lonely or feeling guilty, you hope that therapy will bring relief, that you can finally begin enjoying your life.

This wasn't how it was supposed to go. You're worried you will feel this way forever, that you will never feel like yourself again. Maybe you’re reading this because your parenting experience is not what you expected it to be, in fact, it’s probably been pretty awful so far. Perhaps you’ve experienced child, infant, or pregnancy loss and there are really no words to describe the void you feel right now. The loss is inexpressible and you feel so alone. Or you’re struggling to cope with chronic illness, grief , or life stressors. You feel like you’re hiking through a forest without a map... you just want to find a path forward.

I am passionate about helping individuals achieve their best selves and find fulfillment in life. Sometimes, we are held back by past hurts, low self esteem, anxiety, loss , or other life challenges. If you want to find ways to overcome life challenges, feel more confident, and have better relationships, I am here to help! I also love working with couples. Relationships, especially those with our spouse or partner are the most important thing in life. Often couples find themselves struggling to communicate and feel disconnected from one another. I would love to help you and your partner feel more connected!

We most often think of grief as a response to the death of someone we care about, but the truth is that grief comes in many forms.
When people ask how you are, you just don't know what to say anymore. "What's happening to me?" you may be wondering. "I've always been such a strong person." Grief can be a profoundly disorienting experience. Comments from well-meaning family and friends are falling short. How can the world keep going as if nothing has happened, when your life has stopped?

I enjoy and have expertise working with autistic teens/adults as well as individuals struggling with grief , anxiety, and depression.
Sometimes life doesn’t go the way we plan, and it's difficult to know how to navigate through the challenges we confront. Finding a therapist can be intimidating, and it takes courage to take the first step--so congratulations! Building rapport and trust are essential toward developing a collaborative therapeutic relationship. Therapy should never be a “one size fits all” approach, and I hope to help you feel validated and supported by acknowledging your own unique life journey. I work hard at creating an emotionally safe environment where you can feel free from biases and judgment.

If you’ve landed here, you are no doubt considering making some changes in your life and I'm glad to see that you are exploring your options for feeling better. People I work with typically feel worried, sad, overwhelmed or stressed, or are trying to cope with grief --before, during, or after--an important loss . Feeling stuck in old ways of thinking and behaving, having problematic relationships, or feeling uncomfortable with the status quo and wanting to improve one's quality of life are common themes that bring people to my office.

I feel especially attuned to issues of grief , trauma, depression, and the spiritual seeking that often follows those experiences.
I often work with people who grapple with hard questions to which there is no one "right" answer. I offer a non-judegmental atmosphere in which each person can seek his or her own answers. Therapy is a co-creation. I work with each person to find what "speaks" to him / her. That may include talking, mindfulness practices, or creative arts therapies. Using these methods accesses parts of the brain that can't be reached through words alone, and puts people in the flow of their wisdom and creativity, from which solutions to problems can emerge.

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.
