Announcement icon For the safety/comfort of patients during this period of social distancing, I am treating via FaceTime, Zoom or telephone.
Grief takes many forms: Relationship, career, role transitions, aging, and health loss, to name a few. Whether someone dies by suicide, illness, accident, or natural circumstances, 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.
I use phone/video conferencing (telehealth), as well as in-person sessions to treat grieving individuals and families. I also treat anxiety and those experiencing significant life transitions. 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 therapeutic support, and to find out if telehealth is appropriate for you.
