Death and loss scrambles our world in such an unpredictable and difficult way, and we are never truly prepared as humans to deal with loss.
I truly believe everything someone does makes sense in context. The thoughts one thinks, the emotions one feels, and the actions one takes are legitimate. How do we make sense of our own thoughts, feelings, and actions as well as those of our partners? My goal as a therapist is to create a safe, open space for couples, individuals, and families to explore their own vulnerabilities.

I work with all ages in grief from illness, death, or life changes.
You look around and ask yourself “Is this really my life right now?” Some days are okay, some are uncomfortable, and others are intolerable. In the tough moments, the things you've tried before don't seem to work. Treading water was fine for a while, but you’re ready to swim. Maybe someone you cared about died. Maybe that inner critic voice is louder or more persistent than it has been before. Maybe your child’s thoughts and feelings are too big for them to handle.
