You deserve support and to have hope in your life. Therapy is a process where this happens and I find it an honor to walk beside and gently guide you through whatever you may be experiencing. I believe in basing our therapeutic relationship on acceptance, genuineness, and empathy. "

"Unexpected challenges, loss, or the simple momentum of life can sometimes make it hard to feel solid or know how to respond. Inner distress or outward behaviors can make it difficult to feel good about oneself or get along with others. At these times, one can benefit greatly from the support of a trained therapist to explore experiences, feelings, and concerns. I create a confidential supportive space where clients have the opportunity to draw upon their inner strengths and capacity to grow, discover new perspectives, tools, and options for behavior, and develop as individuals to improve their quality of life."

"Everyone needs a soft place to fall. The loss of a loved one disrupts everything in our lives and the intense emotions of grief can be overwhelming. This can be especially true for children who don't yet have the words to express themselves or for adolescents who are struggling with their need for emotional support but wanting to appear "normal" among their peers. Specializing in expressive therapies such as sandtray therapy, I help children, adolescents and adults cope with loss or trauma, and I help adults in need of assistance with learning more adaptive ways to cope with life's developmental challenges and changes."

"Grief is a natural response to a bereavement or a loss of any kind, but the distress you understandably feel today need not be incapacitating or unnecessarily prolonged. My approach will help you come to terms with your new reality, while retaining a healthy and positive psychological relationship with the loved ones you have cherished, but who are now no longer physically present. We will work together to establish new strategies for living a fulfilling and joyful life - a life that can be continually enriched by the happy memories of times gone by. A life of gratitude, rather than regret."

"Grief is involved in any life change, whether that change is welcome or unwelcome, abrupt or expected. Even though grief is part of being human, our society struggles to acknowledge it and my clients are looking for a grounded place for their grief to land. Some clients arrive grieving the death of a family member or friend, their own illness, or a loved one's terminal status. Others seek help facing grief in relationship changes, life shifts such as adjusting to marriage and parenthood, missed opportunities, and current or past trauma. My clients want to process their grief so it does not define their lives. "

"People seek psychotherapy feeling unhappy or helpless to bring about change in their life or fulfill their dreams. Patients are overcome with symptoms of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance abuse or other problems, which in reality are unconscious defenses, blocking repressed feelings about something that went wrong, often in childhood, which is not yet resolved. These defenses once were adaptive, by protecting and helping them survive, but are no longer effective. I help people work through their underlying grief and face their feelings (sadness, anger, disappointment, yearning, powerlessness) surrounding trauma or loss, enabling them to engage in more free, authentic, satisfying lives."
