Have you experienced a significant loss and are having trouble adjusting to your new normal? Does it feel like it will never get better? I can work with you to realize that it’s possible to feel like yourself again, and that there is hope beyond your loss. Whether it is a bad breakup, infertility, the loss of independence after a serious diagnosis, the death of a loved friend, family member or pet, grief deserves to be discussed openly and processed appropriately. I will listen to you without judgment, provide meaningful feedback and am invested in your desire to bring hope and meaning back into your life.

With individuals, I utilize different theories based on the needs of each client, since everyone responds differently to each approach. With couples, I make sure each partner is heard and has the chance to express themselves in a safe space. When facilitating groups I make sure each member has time to share their story and that the time is constructive.

My combined experiences in medical social work and psychotherapy, as well as personal experience give me perspective when talking with my clients who juggle work, social life, health problems and family dynamics. I work closely with cancer patients and their caregivers, and understand how chronic illness and death affects the entire family system.
