Announcement icon I provide HIPAA-secure video sessions for clients, both in Covid-19 and non-pandemic times. Please contact me with any questions.
You may be reading this because you’ve experienced a very difficult loss in your life. Maybe you’ve lost a loved one or a pregnancy. Perhaps you are struggling as you or a relative begin hospice care or approach the end stage of a disease. You might be grieving a beloved pet. Loss, although universal, can feel isolating and unbearable to endure. I can help grieving people feel better - you don't need to go through this alone.
Through my work helping others navigate grief and death, I’ve been described as a “bright light in a time of darkness.” I’m a warm and welcoming therapist with a deep understanding and capability for helping people who are struggling. Therapy with me is informed by my five years spent as a hospice social worker and extensive grief and loss training.
I am licensed in both New Jersey and California, and I provide therapy through a secure and convenient telehealth platform (online video conferencing). I can help you learn how to use that technology to facilitate productive sessions together. I hope you’ll contact me for a free 15-minute consultation on how we may work together to support you.
