Additionally, I enjoy working with young adults and the difficulties they face entering adulthood, and of much importance, grief and loss at all ages.
As a counselor, I believe that working through issues such as depression, anxiety, co-dependency, addictions... in present time is very important, along with examining wounds from childhood that are barriers to moving forward. Through this work, healing can occur with understanding, self-compassion, authenticity, and positive change. Most people come to therapy related to feelings based on fear or pain. I provide a warm and compassionate place that allows my clients to openly share and have a voice that is respected and heard. I look forward to hearing your story.

Depression, grief , and life transitions such as college choices are other issues which I frequently treat and help you through the changes associated with these.
Ours is a stressful world and anxiety disorders is one of my specialties. It's important to directly work with both the sources of stress and your stress responses (rapid heart rate, breathing difficulty, etc) to help you feel more in control and happier with life. I use cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness strategies in my therapy. The most important key to successful therapy is the relationship between us. This collaboration, our working together, gets things off on the right foot in helping you work on the issues you brought to therapy.

What makes psychotherapy effective is the client/ therapist relationship; it is important to find someone with whom you can connect and feel at ease. I have worked with individuals, couples, groups and families for over 35 years. Clients come to me to address life issues such as personal/professional transitions, stress in relationships, health issues, grief and bereavement , anxiety and depression. I use integrative therapy, which combines traditional psychotherapy with proven alternative mind-body practices: meditation, visualization and tai chi/qigong. As a result, the mind, spirit and body all work together to promote healing, wellness and personal growth.

There are many types of losses, including death of a loved one, loss of a relationship and even loss of the person that you thought you would be.
What if your priority today was to process your recent or upcoming loss or face your daily anxieties? Sometimes just the thought of exploring your feelings is terrifying. You can get through the day-to-day tasks, but the days overall feel meaningless. It feels impossible to find energy or motivation to work towards the goals you want to achieve or even to think towards the future. Perhaps you cope by staying constantly busy or distracting yourself, but it does not help in the long run. It always feels like there is not enough time and you feel stuck in these patterns.

One of my main areas of specialization is grief and loss .
Hi and welcome to my page! I know the process of finding a therapist can be overwhelming and a bit scary, so I commend you for taking this step, and I thank you for taking the time to learn about me. Sometimes being a human is tough. Throughout our lives, we may find ourselves dealing with a variety of losses, hardships, and challenges, and this can take a toll on our emotional well-being. The more we try to suppress our feelings and pretend everything is okay, the less connected and engaged we may feel with ourselves and our world. Therapy is the place where you can seek a deeper understanding of yourself.

Does life sometimes look different than you expected it to be? Do you wonder about your life purpose or what gives you value? Or question about where you fit in the world? Perhaps you might even be feeling more anxious about your future lately. We all wrestle with our identity and challenge our self-worth when difficult times emerge in our lives. Some of us struggle with depression, anxiety, grief , or life stage issues and need someone to walk with us and help us navigate during those times. I would love to journey with you through the ordinary and the extraordinary moments of your life.

I provide services for people that struggle with chronic pain, marital difficulties, spirituality, unresolved grief / loss , and problems managing anger.
Reaching out for help and making that initial phone call can be difficult for some people. However, feeling stuck in your life, a job, or in a relationship that is not working can also be difficult. In my practice I strive to help clients gain awareness of what is keeping them stuck and develop effective, healthier, coping strategies for gaining control in their lives.

Overcoming Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Grief , Substance Abuse & Perinatal Mental Health concerns are my areas of specialty.
Connection & Sense of Belonging: We all want to be accepted and know we matter. Challenging life experiences disrupt these connections and leave you feeling isolated and alone. My first priority is creating a meaningful relationship through respect and non-judgement by listen to your story and what brings you to seek support and guidance. People I work with struggle with anxiety, depression, and often have negative core beliefs from past experiences that inform present decisions and actions. I help people find relief and re-define beliefs in a more positive direction.

Grief Therapists

How long does therapy take for grief?

There is no exact timeline for grief counseling. Some people may start to feel better after just a few sessions, while others may take months or longer to feel relief. Some specific approaches, including some types of CBT, may involve a set number of sessions, or therapy may be open-ended until the patient determines they are ready to wrap up. Just as there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there is no right or wrong way to seek therapy for grief.

When should you seek therapy for grief?

Many people mistakenly believe that their grief needs to be debilitating or all-encompassing to warrant therapy. This is not the case. While people who experience severe, prolonged grief—particularly those who are considering self-harm or engaging in unhealthy substance use—are especially likely to benefit from therapy, so too are people whose grief is less intense but still interfering with well-being or daily functioning. In practice, almost anyone struggling to process a loss could benefit from grief counseling.

Can grief be managed without therapy?

Oftentimes, yes. Grief is a near-universal part of being human, and many find that their grief, while profound, does not stop them from participating in day-to-day life and steadily eases over time without outside help. For others, however, the harsh pain of early grief persists for months or years or leaves them unable to function. This group is especially likely to benefit from seeing a therapist, who can guide them through their grief and help them reconnect with the world.

What happens if grief is left untreated?

Because grief does not in itself necessitate therapy, untreated grief will often resolve on its own. However, for some people—particularly those who would qualify for a diagnosis of prolonged grief disorder—untreated grief can be a source of seemingly endless pain or lead them to withdraw from the world. In such cases, treatment can be indispensable, as it can help an individual adapt to the loss and start living again.
