Are you well educated and yet feel overwhelmed by life? Is anxiety or depression making every day a struggle? Are you unhappy in your relationship, going through a life transition, or reeling from a major loss ? Do you have noisy inner critics who make you feel bad about yourself.? When you feel out of balance maybe your self-care goes out the window. You feel off, not yourself, simple daily tasks of life become difficult. Maybe you are irritable with the people you care about the most. Maybe you want to talk to someone but are worried you will burden your family or friends.

While I have specialized in treating both eating disorders and trauma for most of her career, I also have a great deal of experience and interest in treating anxiety, depression, grief , adoption related issues and navigating life transitions.
Selecting a Therapist to partner in your journey of self discovery and change is an important decision. I have close to 30 years of experience treating adolescents and adults with a wide range of issues. My experience has taught me that people have a great deal of internal wisdom, but sometimes need assistance in accessing and utilizing that information. In 2012 I founded Reflections Psychotherapy: Seeing, Freeing, Being. This name mirrors many aspects of my treatment approach.

I have solid training as a generalist, treating issues related to depression, anxiety, grief / loss , and relationships.
I consider it a privilege to work with clients as they navigate through times of pain, sorrow, and self-exploration. I appreciate learning from clients their goals for the therapy process and how they hope to change. I assist clients in understanding possible triggers to uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, or behaviors, while also identifying ways in which they may find themselves stuck. Together, we will identify healthy coping skills for managing and ultimately moving past the distress, leading to a healthier and lighter way of being.

If you are struggling with health, personal or family issues, I’m sure the larger social context has made them even more complicated. I am inspired by the effort and trust folks bring to therapy. I try to match that with positive energy and clinical expertise. I work with clients with a range of presenting concerns. I am particularly drawn to: identity exploration & growth, grief & loss (all kinds), working with helpers (therapists, healthcare workers, educators..), addressing social challenges & relationships. I specialize in perinatal issues: high risk pregnancy, loss , infertility, traumatic delivery, postpartum mood changes.

Grieving the death of a loved one, the loss of a relationship, a decline in health, or any other life transition can be a lonely, painful, and confusing time. Your friends and family may want you to be "back to normal" but you may feel anything but "normal." I can help you to heal from your losses whether recent or in the past by providing therapeutic counseling in a safe nurturing environment. I worked in hospice for 11 years as a grief therapist. I have seen people not only heal from their losses but find new meaning and hope.

You may be derailed by the loss of a job or relationship; feel depressed and not know why, or struggle as a parent. I work with individuals, couples and families to pinpoint your concerns and work toward change. My emphasis is on building honest, open relationships and on using insight to fuel change.

I work with individuals and couples who are experiencing difficult life transitions, depression, anxiety and grief and loss .
I believe that we all have the ability to make positive changes within our lives. When we are struggling within our relationships, with our work or with ourselves, we may not realize that we already have many of the tools we need to navigate difficult situations and feelings. Through a trusting therapeutic relationship, we can discover strategies to unlock these skills and alleviate stress. I strive to create a warm, empathic and collaborative environment to help clients uncover their strengths and make lasting change.

Beyond issues related to depression, anxiety, and life transitions, I also have special interest and expertise in grief work.
None of us has to have it all figured out all of the time. Reaching out for support is a sign of strength. Maybe you’re living a smaller life than you would like, stopping yourself short of taking risks because of fears or certain beliefs about yourself. Maybe you’re finding yourself in the same unhealthy patterns despite trying over and over again to carve a new path. Maybe you’re grappling with a change in your life and having a hard time finding your footing. I provide a warm, safe space where these painful patterns and struggles can be explored with fresh eyes, to both better understand them and work toward a sense of traction.

Partnering with people experiencing Grief , Depression, Anxiety, Life Changes, and/or Relationship changes including Divorce, I offer support and Guidance. My belief is the “radical” idea that we can choose our responses to experiences. There’s no denying that sometimes what happens is nothing short of shattering & life-altering with the drop-us-to-our-knees kind of heart pain. Yet our opportunities for healing increase immeasurably when we recognize that our responses truly can be made with intention.

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.
