Grief takes many forms: Relationship, career, role transitions, aging, and health loss, to name a few. When someone dies by suicide, illness, accident, or nature, our world turns upside-down and we feel hopeless, our grief endless. Sometimes there's despair, anxiety, sometimes relief. Sometimes we think of what we could've, would've or should've done. Sometimes we're just numb. Sometimes we (or others) judge that passing time should measure our healing. Grief is individual and personal; there is no right or wrong way to feel. One thing IS certain: We need support, hope and understanding.

In a safe, quiet lakeside setting, I work with grieving children, parents, adults, couples and families. I also treat anxiety and those experiencing life transitions and other other life-changing issues. I implement an integrative approach, as therapy is not a "one size fits all" process.

I am a Doctor of Jungian Depth Psychology (PhD), a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), Certified Grief Specialist, and an American Diabetes Association (ADA) Certified Mental Health Provider for diabetes education. Please call for fees and information regarding therapy services, and for on-site school or workplace grief support.
