Maybe you’re needing to try and wade into the depths of self-work, the meaningful questions of existence, suffering or loss , who you are, or finding your place in this beautiful, painful world.
I believe therapy is a space where we explore the pain and the joy of human existence in a deep and meaningful way. My approach tends to be direct but I intentionally leave space for you to feel whatever comes up for you. My therapy room is a space where you and I get to delve into the realness of who you are without shame or judgment. It can be challenging to look at our internal world and acknowledge the reality of our lived experiences, but as someone who has done (and continues to do) that work, I can say this confidently: it is truly life changing to face yourself with courage.

Many of us have or will experience emotional difficulties at some point in our lives. Sometimes it is not easy to overcome these roadblocks and we end up stuck in our emotional development. There are times in our lives when we need help to work through something, to regain our focus or to feel connected. I work with individuals, couples and families struggling with anxiety, trauma, grief & loss , and depression. I believe healing is possible.

An Invitation to come as you are...Sometimes it's easy to forget or move away from who you are and your story. There are many life circumstances that may impact and influence how you feel about and perceive yourself as well as others. Shame, guilt, fear, anxiety, anger, disappointment, sadness, illness, grief , loss and broken relationships are a part of many peoples' life stories yet sometimes it can be difficult to accept those parts of one's journey. I invite you to come with all the pieces of who you are and share your story.

My most recent work as a Bereavement Counselor in a Hospice setting has allowed me to put into practice my many years of loss and grief training.
I offer a calming and gentle approach to clients that enhances their comfort levels and allows for open discussion of problem areas. Together, we investigate the factors that cause and contribute to their issues. Together, we investigate coping skills and factors that will diminish symptoms and work toward resolution of these life issues. In the words of one client: "If what I have to say doesn't upset you, then maybe it isn't as bad as I feared." Mood disorders, autism spectrum disorders, relationship conflicts as well as loss and grief issues are among my treatment specialties.

Are you a woman struggling with infertility, challenged with anxiety or depression during pregnancy, after having a child or coping with pregnancy/infant loss ? Each of these specific struggles are worthy of validation of feelings, empathetic listening, development of coping strategies and an objective supportive place to gain perspective.
Are you finding yourself feeling unable to cope with the challenges of day to day life, job stress, divorce, family strain, relationship problems, and/or symptoms of depression and anxiety? Seeking out brief solution focused therapy is sometimes a great way to refocus and get back on track. Therapy does not need to be long term. Therapy can focus on the here and now while using the past to connect the dots to today's struggle. Therapy is an investment in yourself, your family and your future.

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.
