Taking the first steps to make changes and move towards recovery and growth is often not easy but feeling better matters. You may feel as if you’re struggling even if you’re smart, hard-working and motivated, but you can feel better. Clients come to therapy burdened with such things as anxiety/mood concerns, grief / loss issues, low self-esteem, LGBTQ+ issues, men's issues or challenges with life transitions. You want to move forward and make positive changes but are not sure where to start. Have a mature, relational, compassionate and insight- oriented therapeutic partner with you on this journey. If you contact me, I will reach out.

Can painful life challenges be transformed into healing opportunities? Is it possible to live with increased purpose and meaning after a major loss ? Will you be strengthened by facing your fears? Since you are now seeking therapy, something inside of you must already trust that the answer to these questions is-YES!

I specialize in treating grief , relationship issues, depression, anxiety, and trauma.
What season of your personal and/or love life are you in? Are you in spring- full of hope and anticipation, summer- relaxed and enjoying life, fall- grappling with uncertainty, or winter- discouraged and disconnected? Unresolved or unaddressed grief and conflict can rob us of the ability to live life fully. Have you experienced disconnection in your relationship, breakup, divorce, loss of a loved one, health decline/medical issues, aging; or change associated with a move, new job, or COVID that is causing stress, anxiety, or depression? I can help you find inner peace while weathering the storm.

Anxiety, depression, chronic pain and illness, grief , losses (spouses, children, parents, pets), substance struggles,aging, relationship struggles, ADHD, OCD, traumas, LGBT issues, existential issues, spiritual growth.
There is no real ‘cure’ for being a human being. But in therapy, there can be support, exploration and development of skills that let us live a more meaningful and manageable life. Perspective of another, more objective person, can help. When you are in the movie, you can't watch it.

Are you having difficulty expressing yourself to your partner or family? Are you looking for safety in your relationship and a soft place to fall? Do conflicts happen more often than agreeable conversations? Or does silence win over conversations? Maybe you're experiencing a struggle with the anxieties and demands of life. Maybe grief or life changes have challenged your relationship. Maybe you just want your partner to listen to you and really hear you.

My practice is for adults who are experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, grief and loss , and self-esteem issues.
Because each person is different, there is no "one-size-fits-all" approach to therapy. Ultimately, the right therapist can help you develop a greater sense of peace and self-fulfillment. So it is important to choose someone with whom you feel safe and comfortable; someone who will listen, empathize, and respect your needs; and someone with the skills necessary to support you in reaching your goals. In the process, you will acquire greater self-awareness, and learn to cope more effectively with life issues. This is my approach to therapy. I hope I will be able to help you.

Is your marriage becoming unmanagable? Do you have anxiety or even panic daily? Are your compulsions becoming difficult to manage? Is your anger out of control? Is your sadness too much to bear? Cost is not always measured in dollars and cents, it is spent emotions or wasted energy or lost time; maybe it is time for help!

Do you struggle with anxiety and a sense of dread? Do you tend to be really hard on yourself? Symptoms such as anxiety and perfectionism can worsen after a stressful life event, such as a breakup, a major life change, or the loss of a loved one. Anxiety symptoms can make it more challenging to function in your daily life and can even affect your work performance and relationships with loved ones. Anxiety can take a mental and physical toll but you do NOT need to struggle on your own. Therapy can be a helpful place of support and guidance so that you can get back to feeling more grounded and centered.

I specialize in working with anxiety, trauma, grief and loss , and shame.
What is the story you want to tell with your life? This is a question that both challenges me personally and defines my work as a therapist. Sometimes it can feel like our circumstances define us. When we are overwhelmed by anxiety, relationship issues, and the burdens of past trauma, it becomes so easy to forget what we want our lives to look like and who we want to be. When we get to this place, we often lose hope. I work with each of my clients to find what old stories are keeping them stuck and begin to discover new ways to promote well being in life direction and mental health.

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.
