As the coordinator of bereavement outreach for children and teens at Iowa City Hospice (2004) I learned the value of a " grief lens.
My ideal client is commited to personal growth. I believe we are all fragile creatures, yet capable of resilience. We experience painful thought/feeling states and then we weave stories to explain them. Narrative Therapy has been a natural fit for me: the client defines the goals, we examine the details of self-limiting stories, including family and cultural "scripts." We work to co-create stories about identity that have more space for possibilities and emotional resilience.

Grief , death /dying, illness, loss , and major life transitions can crack us wide open and change our lives. It can be hard to find an equilibrium again, especially with numerous ideas about doing things "the right way." Likewise, being exposed to others suffering, working under difficult systems of demands, or carrying around outdated notions of ourselves can lead to overwhelm, burnout, and stress. Naming these experiences can put many in touch with the desire for things to be different - whether its about grief , a sense of self, relationships, or career.

“Before you assist others, put your oxygen mask on first." Prioritizing your wellness is essential. Perhaps you feel pulled in a million directions or you have suffered a loss . Perhaps you are stuck in an unhealthy relationship or you constantly compare yourself to others. Breaking unhealthy cycles of thought can be life-changing, and that is what we will strive to do together.

Life can be difficult to navigate on our own, especially when the rug has been pulled out from underneath us and we don’t feel grounded anymore. My role as a therapist is to help you explore your identity and values so you can feel more connected to yourself and the world. Together we can identify patterns, behaviors, and systems that aren’t serving you in order to cultivate a life worth living. I enjoy working with adolescents and adults on issues related to anxiety, depression, suicidality, grief and loss , life changes, and trauma.

I work best with those who are interested in and motivated to deeply explore and understand themselves in the service of lasting growth. I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions, grief , OCD, relationship concerns, family-of-origin difficulties, and feelings of isolation and disconnection. I also have a strong interest in working with individuals with marginalized identities who present with identity-related challenges, especially when living in a context that doesn't support- or actively works to oppress- those identities.

UAY therapists have expertise in the areas that are common concerns for teens, parents, and young adults. Although our focus is serving youth 10-25, we can also provide services for adults if space is available.

Many enter therapy seeking relief from some stress, grief , or pain that has become unbearable. This is only the beginning; I can help you accomplish something more profound than that. With a view to holistic well-being, you can improve your embodied health, self-awareness, sense of purpose and belonging, and relationship with your inner self or higher power. I strongly encourage clients to use creative processes. To address urgent symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, and drug/alcohol dependence, I offer psychoeducation regarding mindfulness, biofeedback, and methods for altering oppressive behavioral and thinking patterns.

CURRENTLY NO OPENINGS. People generally seek therapy because they want some aspect of their life to be different and change can be hard! I love working with people courageous enough to face whatever it is that's in need of changing. Stress and anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, new adjustments or life-transitions, self-identity and personal development, family of origin issues, recovering from trauma, grief or personal losses are just some of the presenting concerns I typically work with in individual counseling. My multidisciplinary background provides me with different lenses and methods to approach each client's concerns.

Grief Therapists
Grief and Bereavement 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.
