About

Helen Keller wrote, "Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it." For those in emotional pain, life can be a dark and lonely place. When we suffer, we lose touch with our core of strength and well-being. But the resilience of the human heart offers hope for healing. I will provide reassurance through a strong bond of trust and non-judgmental acceptance. In a compassionate and supportive atmosphere, I will help you find your way back to peace and well-being.
Trained in trauma and grief counseling, I help clients with PTSD, trauma, and grief from death, divorce, suicide, sex abuse, disability, crime, pet loss, and job loss; self-esteem, family/relationship issues, co-dependence, infidelity, and addiction recovery. Learn skills such as positive psychology, self-compassion, mindfulness, acceptance, and self-talk.
Empathy and compassion help me quickly establish trust and rapport with my clients. I work well with individuals from all backgrounds, ranging in age from high school graduates to the elderly, both heterosexual and LGBTQ, and those from diverse cultural/religious/spiritual backgrounds, including Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, atheist, and agnostic.
