I have experience and skill working with complex trauma, grief and loss , and LGBTQ-identified clients.
People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons, yet a common thread unites this motivation: the desire to understand one's inner experience in an authentic way. Therapy presents an opportunity to be curious, to foster new depths of understanding, and to develop a greater sense of meaning in your life. The therapeutic relationship provides a space to explore an intuitive understanding of yourself. The core of my therapeutic work is to help people articulate deeply held longings, and to decide if and how to manifest them in the world.

I've worked across the spectrum from curative to life-limiting disease, from diagnosis to bereavement .
***I do not currently have availability in my practice*** If you or someone you love is dealing with a life-changing issue impacting your family, work/education, or physical/emotional health or if you are simply looking for personal growth, my practice might be a good fit for you. Whether you are in the "Sandwich Generation" having to support those older and younger than you, you are in a relationship that is struggling with communication, intimacy issues or finances, or you are questioning your chosen career, I can offer a space to process the emotions and build tools together for addressing the issue.

I have extensive experience working in the area of loss and bereavement .
Therapy begins where you are. People seek therapy for many different reasons. Whether you are dealing with a particular crisis or simply want to know more about yourself, therapy can lead to a better understanding of who we are and what has shaped us. Through these discoveries, therapy can allow you to identify old patterns that have been standing in your way of living the life you want.

I also have worked extensively with loss and grief issues.
Using the therapeutic process I can offer many things to people: empathy and a sounding board, other ways of looking at issues, and ideas about how to solve problems. In addition, I can help you feel more alive to your experience as paying attention to your inner voice can increase your capacity to feel and be present. I have been a therapist for over twenty years. I also have taught clinical practice for ten years to students earning their masters degrees in counseling and I provide ongoing clinical supervision for people who work in various settings.

I have over 17 years of experience working with older adults and their caregivers in a variety of settings (inpatient psychiatric care, hospice, palliative care, and bereavement ).
If you are caring for an older adult with whom you have a relationship, you may find that it can be quite complicated, regardless of how good the quality of the relationship is or has been. The emotional and physical demands of caring for older adults are often overlooked and underestimated and I am here to help support you during the ups and downs of this journey. By providing therapy for caregivers who are working through the complexity of their caregiving role, I can help them maintain their sense of self-worth, integrity, and identity.

as well as the treatment of substance abuse issues, emotional regulation, stress management, complex trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, interpersonal issues, grief and bereavement .
I believe that the therapeutic relationship should be a place of authenticity and acceptance, and my goal as a therapist is to provide a safe space that nurtures personal growth and healing. Having lived and worked in Asia for more than a decade, I offer a culturally sensitive environment that honors the wisdom and experience of each individual. As a somatic-based psychotherapist, I focus on the development of self-awareness and self-knowledge of both mind and body. I use traditional talk-therapy, but I also incorporate the tools of yoga therapy, dance/movement therapy and the Eastern concept of mindfulness.

I address matters such as marriage and relationships, depression, anxiety, trauma, sexual abuse, grief , as well as spirituality and co-dependency.
William Arthur Ward once said, "We can choose to throw stones, to stumble on them, to climb over them, or to build with them." The passion I carry for the therapeutic process is not only founded on my training and education but also my personal experience. I have faith in one's capacity for growth that comes from the willingness to be honest and courage to face difficult issues. In this life we will encounter many stones in our path. It is up to each individual to choose what they will do with them.

I understand the importance of developing resilience-to-change in order to effectively cope with major life transitions (marriage, birth of a child, loss of a loved one, divorce, retirement, new job). Without such resilience, life can feel overwhelming, self esteem becomes precarious, and mood can dip dramatically. Through my warm, direct, highly international approach, I collaborate with my clients to address the behaviors that continue to cause pain. My books, teaching and supervision have provided training for 100s of other clinicians to help their clients to feel more empowered in relationship and to fulfill their potential

Grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

If you're looking for a Watertown grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Watertown.
