I offer comfort, counsel and clarity to individuals and families facing medical illness, grief, loss and bereavement, and/or life transitions. Companioning folks on these journeys allows me to help them lessen their sense of isolation, to help identify and utilize their strengths, and to manage difficult emotions. Frequently clients are overwhelmed and need help sorting through stressful feelings and situations. Once that is accomplished, much progress is made. In life transitions, identifying and touching the emotions and then re-establishing a life-plan are often the primary goals, crafted to the client's unique needs.

At some point in everyone’s life, we are greeted with an invitation to change. Sometimes these junctures arrive by choice – beginning or leaving a relationship or marriage, deciding on a new career path or to retire. Sometimes these changes arrive on their own timeline – children leave the nest, a medical crisis occurs, we experience the death of a loved. These periods of transition can be disorienting and destabilizing and bring with them the stress of the unknown. They also present us with an opportunity to re-establish a connection to our core self, to learn about new parts of ourselves and to grow in unanticipated ways.

Using tailored techniques, I support adults with anxiety, depression and bereavement.
You feel irritable and wonder whether you will ever be your old self again. You may question whether you are doing enough, are coping with a loss, or resent your partner for not helping. When you thought about starting a family, this is not quite what you expected. Nothing prepares us for motherhood, or the other curveballs life throws. Since 2005, I have met many women who think everyone else has it all together. The good news is that you can get relief from feeling overwhelmed. Imagine snapping less at people, accepting yourself, and getting through long days with more peace.

Life can feel overwhelming when you're faced with loss or change. As much as you try to adjust, it can be scary and confusing to realize that life isn't turning out the way you had planned. Life stress -- such as divorce or relationship loss, death of a loved one, job loss, illness, caregiving -- happens to most of us at some point and it can seem nearly impossible to bounce back from such heartache.

The experience of seeing someone shed the weight of grief, loss or a life transition and see them walk back into their world feeling lighter, freer and once again excited to pursue their own personal journey was my core motivation for becoming a social worker.
My life’s journey has allowed me to gain knowledge and experience in many areas. I would be honored to share guidance on a deeper level which is why I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work and became a therapist. My specialties are grief and loss as well as life or career transitions. Grief can take many forms. It can be due to the loss of a loved one, but can also follow from the loss of a job or home, a divorce, loss of a beloved pet, or becoming an empty nester. I can assist with rediscovering a positive future and guide you with redefining who you choose to be in the wake of your loss.

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 Northbrook grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Northbrook.
