I work with people who are experiencing problems because of relationship difficulties, loss , infertility, family transitions, work problems, substance use and health issues.
Change is hard. But change is necessary when we find ourselves in situations where we feel sad, anxious, angry or stuck. My ultimate goal as a therapist is to help you develop more options in life -- to help you realize your potential in love, work and play. This involves the development of new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. I will be your collaborator in this process. I will strive to create a safe, empathic and non-judgmental environment that will allow you to identify and explore your current struggles. Working together, change is possible.

Specializing in the areas of life transitions, grief and loss , parenting, relationship difficulties, infidelity, sexuality, depression and anxiety, I provides a safe space for clients to find greater self-awareness, empowerment, compassion, and health.
I am a relational therapist working with individuals, couples, and those in non-traditional relationships. Seeking support from psychotherapy is a sign of inner strength and hope, even when it feels as if ones world has turned inside-out. Life rarely allows any of us a free pass; births and deaths, personal crises, relationship troubles, childhood trauma, etc. may meet any one of us head-on at sometime during our lives. Seeking help from psychotherapy is a worthwhile path to take when ways of coping no longer seem effective. I nurture the possibility of deeper understanding and self-knowledge by creatively engaging the whole person.

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.

I do not subscribe to one particular modality but rather tailor my approach to each client's needs. I believe working in the here and now are great ways to address current stressors, and I'm always happy to work with clients to address deeper issues as appropriate.

Grief Support Group for Loss of a Parent — I am facilitating an online support group for adults who are grieving the death of a parent, starting June 15, 2020.
If you’re in a season of emotional pain or confusion, I’m glad you’re taking the first step to reach out for help. Maybe you’ve been trudging through a challenging situation and feeling like you’re making little progress. Maybe you’ve lost a loved one or have experienced an upheaval in your life that has shaken your foundations. Whatever it is, we can walk together through your unique journey. I often help clients navigate through issues like grief and loss including life transitions, cultural issues, and the impact of trauma, as well as working with depression, anxiety, and relational stressors.

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.

Even if you have friends and family members to talk to, healing from trauma and loss is difficult.
Sometimes a single life event can derail us, throwing us off track both personally and professionally. Whether from a traumatic event or a significant loss , the memories triggered during everyday life can interfere with our thoughts and feelings, and influence how we act. The loss of control over our emotions can leave us feeling both anxious and depressed.

My clients have a range of things on their minds, including loss , depression, marital or parenting problems, people in their lives who are difficult to deal with, career challenges, or difficulty finding life satisfaction.
Choosing to talk to a professional is a big decision. You may have been thinking about it for months or even years. Let me put your mind at ease about what you'll find if you choose to contact me and come for a session. You'll find someone warm and welcoming who will sit down and have a conversation with you. I will ask about what's been going on and you can tell me what's been troubling you. I will help you to think about possible explanations and solutions in a way you probably haven't thought of before.

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.
