Has grief stolen your joy? Has trauma ripped the rug out from beneath you? Have you experienced an unexpected or sudden loss? If so, I’d bet you’re overwhelmed with how to find your footing in a world that doesn’t slow down. I’d also guess you’ve begun to distance yourself from friends and family because you feel misunderstood, and maybe even minimized, in how you're navigating the aftermath. The weight of grief and trauma can be paralyzing, causing us to disconnect from the support we need. I'm Heather, and I’d love to help shoulder some of that weight while we integrate the grief and trauma in a way that doesn’t feel so heavy.
Combining certifications in perinatal mental health and trauma therapy allows me to specialize my work with perinatal loss clients who've experienced miscarriage, stillbirth, TOPFA, or infant death. The unique nature of perinatal loss warrants a tailored approach to grief and trauma therapy of which I apply when working with this specific population.
I approach therapy from a relational model that emphasizes how trauma and grief impact our social worlds. I draw upon techniques and interventions that foster growth, facilitate connection with others, and cultivate resilience after traumatic loss. I am currently accepting new clients, and would love to assist you in your search of a happier, healthier you!
