About

When life is touched by illness, loss, caregiving or burnout, therapy can be a compass to help you navigate through the storms to calmer waters. My clients are young adults, middle aged adults and older adults who may also identify patients, survivors, caregivers, family members, healthcare workers or first responders. Clients come to me for help with the emotional and practical concerns that arise with complicated medical diagnoses & chronic illnesses, caregiving, grief/loss, professional burnout or trauma, and life transitions. My practice is inclusive of all individuals and values diversity, equity & inclusion.
Therapy is focused on helping you process, adjust, cope, move forward & improve your quality of life, in a way that is comfortable for you. We work together to address concerns such as uncertainty, adjusting to new realities, grieving losses, depression, anxiety, self-identity, changing roles, intimacy, communication, complex family dynamics & more.
I provide a safe space for you to be valued, seen and heard. With dedication, compassion, and collaboration, I will help you cope and regain a sense of control. Together we will identify your values, inner strengths and resources to improve daily functioning and to guide you on the road ahead. Reach out today for a free consultation.
