About

My practice focuses on providing supportive counseling to individuals, couples, and families struggling to cope with the challenges surrounding the end of life, serious illness, and grief. I work with a range of clients, from those newly diagnosed with a life threatening illness, to those struggling to cope with the often difficult effects of medical treatment, to those grieving the death of a loved one, whether the death was anticipated after a long illness or the loss was sudden and unexpected.
As a therapist, my goal is to support clients trying to cope with difficult and challenging life experiences. Working from a strengths based and holistic perspective, I seek to help clients find the words to explore the issues they find most difficult in a safe, supportive and nurturing setting.
I often provide education to local organizations regarding a wide range of end of life topics, including aging in place, advanced directives, how to talk with children about death and dying using age appropriate language and resources.
