Hello, there are some hurts in life that heal only through connecting with another person. Early relational trauma whether physical or emotional can create a heaviness that feels inescapable. Single incident trauma can have this effect as well. Sharing the story seems to exacerbate sleep problems, difficulty engaging in day-day activities, or just rising from bed. You do not need to tell me your story, just arrive and be willing to be curious. I offer therapy for PTSD, life transitions, grief and depression. In my work I offer myself as a supportive presence and companion.

I enjoy supporting my clients' curiosity to uncover and explore what contributes to who they are and how they connect with the people in their lives. I work especially well with traumatic experiences, troubled upbringing, grief and anxiety. If you want to understand or change the way you relate to yourself, your story and the world and maybe are longing for a more authentic self expression and acceptance or sense of iner strength, we might be a good fit. I believe that sustainable change happens from the inside and you have the capacity to create this change.

I have a particular passion for and expertise in working with people affected by cancer, as well as end of life and grief / bereavement issues.
I believe that we heal and grow best in a welcoming and supportive environment. My goal is to create a safe space where we can explore together your thoughts and feelings and guide you to a place of deeper self-understanding of your strengths and challenges. Often, this process will enable you to find new ways for dealing with problems, experience more fulfilling relationships, and be more effective in recognizing and meeting your needs, and realizing your desires, and aspirations. These changes reduce discomfort and stress and allow you to feel more alive and fulfilled.

As a seasoned depth psychologist formally trained in exploring the depths of being human, I will work collaboratively with you to get to the root of what ails you. I find cultivating an affirming, caring stance allows an individual to move more readily towards healing and the resolution of problems and difficulties. Consequently, you can be the person you want to be thereby realizing greater personal agency and generating more successful relationships. The heart and soul of my practice involves working with chronic shame, gender and sexuality issues, life transitions, grief , loss , trauma, dissociated self-states, self exploration.

Inviting individuals enduring rippling shocks of grief ; questioning one’s belonging and identity; or have ridden cascades of emotional overwhelm that life absorbs. Whether that be a slow, creeping in, between the midnight hours; a landslide of paralysing, all-encompassing pressure; or rather, a kind of lifelessness that finds its way, uninvited, permeating corners of your world. I welcome those that have weathered storms in life, and offer you a choice to not have to do it alone as we attempt meaning together and move towards stability.

With a former career in eco-advocacy, I am specialized in supporting people struggling with eco-anxiety and grief .
Sometimes as humans we lose the plot. We forget who we are, why we're here, what drew us to the people, places, and work we chose. We forget how to take care of ourselves best, listen to ourselves and others, stay present to life, and take risks. Or maybe we feel we never really knew, but there is a seed of hope in us longing for more. Therapy can help you remember and connect to your wisdom within. The part of you that knows exactly what is needed and what is next.

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.
