The journey to motherhood is often bittersweet. Society tells us that becoming a mother will be a natural, seamless process filled with joyous moments. Unfortunately, this is often not the reality. Many women face a range of challenges, such as infertility, pregnancy loss, and postpartum depression and anxiety and my practice focus is in these areas. I recognize and acknowledge that this can be a difficult time, and I am here to support you regardless of where you are in your journey. My focus is providing a safe space, exploring coping tools and offering strength-based solutions that can help restore your emotional well-being.

I believe strongly in the therapy process to gain the much needed support for grief.
Grief is so very painful. Anxiety builds. You hurt in your head, your heart, your body. It’s difficult to concentrate or remember things, make decisions. Sleeping and eating are tough which makes it challenging to function and do daily routines. You feel so alone, even when you are with people. How long does this misery last? Will it ever end? Worry and dread start to take over. It’s like you are being sucked into a hole and can’t find a way out. Can you even remember a time where you felt some calm, peace? The restlessness and irritability is just too much. You want things to slow down but they don’t. When will it stop?

I specialize in helping people move through the challenges of anxiety, grief/loss, and life transitions.
You are committed to feeling better, you've tried everything, but still feel lost in the pain. You've always been able to "fix" things in your life, why not this? This time, you feel stuck. Maybe you feel gripped by anxiety or panic. Maybe you feel consumed by grief from trauma or loss of a person, pet, or life dream. Maybe you're finding yourself in new life circumstances (a significant health challenge, life milestone, career or relationship change) and wonder "who am I now"? Life has a way of challenging us. There is a way through.

I have a specialized interest in the prevention and treatment of anxiety, chronic stress and complicated grief issues for adults, couples and children.
I help clients whose anxiety is keeping them from enjoying their present lives. Fear sounds the alarm bells for the threat system to mobilize within our body. The anxious thoughts of anticipation can lead to muscle tension, hypervigilance and constant ruminating about what might happen in the future. We are seeking control around the "What if ...?" question. Worry is our mind's way of trying to problem solve around our perceived threats. Unfortunately, anxiety can lure us into constantly thinking there might be a danger even when there is none. The tradeoff to feeling in control and safe is the loss of our felt sense of peace.

Trauma, grief and loss issues compromise the bulk of my client caseload. I find that adults can hold the impact of childhood trauma for years before seeking psychotherapy and often mask their pain with anxiety, depression or compulsive behaviors. My experience is that getting to the hidden pain and strengths that each client carries through his or her daily lives and relationships are the core of healing. There are no quick fixes, but exploring ways to accent life skills, improve self-respect and relationships are keys to building more wholeness in each person's heart, mind, body and spirit. Especially now.

It’s natural to be knocked off center by the death of a loved one, a divorce/breakup, a health scare or anything big that hits you like a brick out of nowhere. I’ve helped many people move through difficult times like these to find there is good that comes out of the bad. Or maybe things are OK, but not really. The kindest thing you can do for yourself is to address a tolerable, yet persistent sense of dissatisfaction, depression, anxiety, loneliness or generally feeling lost. Your north star, the guide to well being, is your connection to your true self.

Grief Therapists
Grief 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.

If you're looking for a California grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in California.
