Announcement icon Currently accepting new clients. I am providing support by phone and video sessions over this time of uncertainty. We are in this together.
Are you bothered by your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors? Is it hard to make it through a day? Do you feel that you are falling apart? Experiencing grief, loss, death of a pet, depression, anxiety, stress? I have great compassion for all of the above. Life can be tough and uncertain. Let us work together toward better days. I will help guide you through your struggles, assist you with lessening your symptoms, and managing your stressors. You can learn how to break unhelpful patterns, soften destructive thoughts, and become "unstuck", all in a non-judgmental, warm, safe, supportive environment.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over 10 years of experience between NYC and now, Buffalo. I specialize in grief and loss, adjusting to life changes, depression, and anxiety. In addition, I provide pet bereavement services for those devastated by the loss of a beloved pet companion. There is not nearly enough support for mourning our pet family.
Developing a sense of trust, safety, and connection with you are my core therapeutic values. Your counseling will be matched to you, individually. Collaboratively, we will find your strengths and empowerment, as well as practices, techniques, and skills in hope of increasing contentment, peace, and your quality of life. It is all about you.
