Utilizing EMDR, I have treated clients with traumatic loss and grief, helping them move through an often complicated mourning process.
As a psychotherapist, I help clients better understand how we carry old wounds of hurt, loss and trauma into the present and how those wounds affect the way we manage our lives and relationships. Life stress--marriage/divorce, parenting, vocation, illness, loss--as well as the challenges of the lifecycle itself--young adulthood, midlife, senescence--can stir up old, unprocessed turmoil. Having been trained in psychodynamic, family systems and EMDR, I strive to attentively, compassionately and actively engage with my clients so that they might free themselves of old wounds and current impasses to live more loving and whole lives.

With over 19 years of experience, I have worked with depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, life transitions, grief/loss, cross cultural concerns, & transitions in older age.
Most of us do the best we can with the resources we have. Sometimes we think no one understands our worries & fears. If open to it, we want to work with a therapist when our usual ways of relating aren't helping & we feel stuck, anxious, angry or depressed. Therapy often helps provide insight into our strengths & internal resources we already have to help navigate challenging times. In sessions, I focus on working with clients to unlock this strength to steer their lives in the direction they want. I bring curiosity, warmth, respect, & empathy to my sessions.

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