Have you endured a painful or sudden loss? Are you experiencing tremendous difficulty adjusting to death, illness, or other significant life transition? Do you feel scared- or even convinced- that things will never improve? Have loved ones tried to reach out, but you don't feel like they understand your situation? There's a good chance that you are tired of "being strong" or tired of feeling alone. Likewise, there's a good chance that you need some emotional support during this trying time.

I specialize in grief and loss, chronic pain, depression and anxiety, aging, end-of-life, caregiving issues and trauma. I understand the multifaceted stressors associated with such transitions. In my practice, I provide both emotional support and practical coping skills to help you harness your ability to heal.

All transitions can be stressful. I emphasize providing warmth, compassion, and unconditional positive regard during our journey together. You don't need to live in the darkness any longer. Together, we can find you a pathway towards hope, joy, and peace. Together, we can cultivate both strength and meaning from your experience.
