About

I provide a safe and compassionate environment to support you in your life journey and its many challenges. Through our work together you will develop a deeper understanding of yourself, which will allow you to navigate the murky waters of life, manage transitions, and live a life filled with meaning. Together we will explore your true nature and I will support you to find more comfort in your life by teaching you tools to overcome obstacles to your emotional well-being. Our collaboration will allow you to move through the more challenging times in your life with a greater sense of ease. I work with adults, teens, and adolescents.
As a trained grief specialist, I specialize in grief and loss work with adults, teens and adolescents. I believe the relationship between a client and therapist is essential in creating personal healing. I nurture a trusting relationship where you feel safe to explore your thoughts and feelings with the reassurance that there is no one right way to grieve.
My approach is humanistic while drawing on other theories such as Jungian and Gestalt. Additionally, I am trained in TRM and SE Somatic Experiencing models. I am currently accepting new clients for Telehealth/Online Therapy.
