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 .

Life is full of transitions. Whether graduating college, leaving home, starting or ending a relationship, childbirth, career change, bereavement , or aging, such transitions can stir up strong emotions, causing stress and even grief . I help individuals from young adulthood through their senior years who are facing depression, anxiety, and other personal challenges to access the strengths they possess and the skills they need to navigate such struggles with renewed confidence, presence of mind, and embodied capabilities.

I am a certified grief counselor and feel privileged to walk alongside clients during some of their darkest moments.
I believe wholeheartedly in the healing power of authentic and meaningful human connection. I believe growth and change are best fostered in an environment where you feel heard, seen, respected, safe, and valued. As a therapist, it is of the utmost importance that the therapeutic work we do together be a completely collaborative process. I feel passionate that the relationship we have with our emotions, especially the painful ones, dictates the quality of our lives. As humans, we all struggle with painful feelings, whether from loss , anxiety, illness, or changes.

Loss can take many forms such as illness, divorce,or injury. Join me in a recovery and discovery process that will help you look at life in a manner that heals the hurts and opens new possibilities. Children and loss are particularly difficult as children grieve differently from adults. My experience with children and adolescents tells me that they have more to say than one can imagine.

My background includes experience and training in oncology, managing chronic disease, coping with grief / loss , life transitions, depression, anxiety and aging in place.
When darkness surrounds you, it may overwhelm you into believing it is impossible to find light. It is in those moments, however, we can discover what we are truly made of and how we can access the strength within to survive, and ultimately thrive. It may seem impossible to know how to cope with the life changing realities physical or emotional changes can bring, or how to support a loved one experiencing such change. I offer an open, compassionate approach while we work together in the at times unexpected rerouting of your life journey. Or offer a safe space to gain clarity over a challenging circumstance.

School changes, divorce, loss , mental illness and trauma are some of my specialities.

I work to help each person get through their challenges and find their strengths. Families can benefit from a therapist who helps them to process their feelings and experiences.

During the course of our lives, we all encounter periods of sadness, grief , worry, and stress. Relationships that have been rock solid may start feeling strained. The ways in which you coped in the past may no longer be working. If you're facing a life challenge and you find yourself struggling, it may be time to work with a professional therapist to help you find new and better ways to cope and thrive. Take the time to take care of yourself.

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.
