This can lead to anxiety, depression, anger, grief , relational issues, and confusion of what to do next.
Sometimes life can feel like you're trying to run underwater while it seems like everyone else is running on a track. We can feel hopeless, stuck, and unsure of where to turn. I hope to provide a place that feels like a safe landing pad amongst the chaos. Together, I hope we can explore your pain, joy, fears, and hopes so that you are able to move towards living whole-heartedly. I am passionate about working with individuals from college-aged and older to work together in identifying root themes and growing your coping skills.

As a clinical social worker, I have 15 years of experience in grief , loss and bereavement , as well as in chronic and terminal illness.
In these uncertain times, many find themselves struggling to cope with increased isolation, grief , trauma, and/or uncertainty about the future. This past year was full of unexpected loss and rapid transition resulting in a collective traumatic experience. You are not alone in feeling new or worsening sadness and/or worry or questioning what comes next. Whether you are exploring changes in your personal life, coping with a new or worsening health condition, processing the trauma of being an 'essential' worker or grieving the death of someone you love, you deserve to feel heard, understood, and to receive support and validation.

We all have an ideal self we wish to bring into reality - such a pursuit constitutes the project of living. At times, though, negative emotions prevent us from reaching our full potentials, and searching for our true selves becomes muddied by our orientation towards others. Ethical dilemmas can arrest us in a state of anxiety. The quest for meaning and happiness may be hampered by the sudden loss of a loved one or an overload of work-related stress. Philosophy can help you understand and overcome the issues holding you back in life and can liberate you from your negative emotions and faulty emotional reasoning.

I believe counseling is most powerful when it sensitizes you to what’s happening in your mind, heart, and body and helps you meet whatever you find with compassion. Feeling your feels (literally) is the first step to making sense of them. Within that confusion is the possibility of deeper self-knowledge and freedom. I find it helpful to use yoga and mindfulness practices to keep you grounded as you explore big emotions, and I enjoy working with people who want to bring the wisdom of the body into their therapeutic work—whether that’s processing loss , trauma, change, overwhelm, spiritual concerns, or feeling stuck and disconnected.

Do you live in a world of sadness that feels like it will swallow up everything else in your life? Perhaps you are grieving the loss of a loved one, a situation, or how you thought life would be. Or maybe you feel a push-pull between punishing yourself out of guilt, and letting yourself heal so you can move forward. Many of my clients begin therapy feeling trapped in the past, whether that involves a childhood trauma or a decision they regret. I can help you understand what you’ve been through and how it’s impacted you. By embracing your story, the good and the bad, you can feel a sense of peace you may not be able to imagine.

I also assist women, pre and post-partum, in their journeys regarding IVF, infertility, and grief .
Many people are hesitant to try therapy due to negative experiences in the past. For some, this will be their first attempt. The style of therapy I focus on is emotional support and listening. I really enjoy being able to walk next to clients when they are making difficult decisions in life or dealing with general stress and anxiety. Being able to assist a person in making their own choices, coming from a place of compassion, non-judgment, and understanding context is a crucial part of my approach. Listening, encouragement, and providing a safe space for a person to express themselves is what I strive for in a session.

I believe that grief is one of the most universal experiences that ties us together as humans, and working with grieving clients is the most important work I can do as a therapist.
Life can be hard. Whether it’s dealing with unresolved trauma, changes in family dynamics or simply the stress of everyday events. Navigating these challenges can be overwhelming, especially when you try to do it on your own. That’s where I come in. I have over ten years working with clients of all ages on everything from self-esteem to grief . I am passionate about working with individuals that have a variety of needs, but am especially experienced with working with clients who have experienced the loss of a loved one.

While I work with a range of presenting concerns, some areas of particular interest/experience include depression, anxiety, grief , stress and anger management, challenging life transitions, identity issues (including LGBTQ+ concerns), and the impact of past or recent trauma.
Seeking help isn't easy, and it takes a certain amount of courage. Just like being human. One of the things I've learned in 20+ years as a practicing psychologist is that we all have reserves of courage within us-even when we're feeling our worst. Having a compassionate and accepting person to talk to can help us find that courage and acceptance within ourselves. If you've been feeling overwhelmed, upset, or confused, or just think you might benefit from touching base with someone supportive and understanding, I would be happy to meet with you.

I have worked with individuals and families dealing with many kinds of loss and have helped them through the grieving process and find healing in the telling of “their story,” It is a special support that develops only by working with a counselor who knows grief and spends the time needed to help to develop a unique recovery plan for each person.
I know it is tough if not impossible to deal alone with many of the significant challenges we face such as addictions. In beginning a support system through counseling you are not alone but working as a team where we will utilize my education and professional experiences along with your invaluable input on your experiences and efforts in recovery. I have been a counselor in various settings including a drug treatment program as a family therapist and a senior counselor. It is vital to have a detailed plan for recovery from addiction. After primary treatment and twelve-step groups, aftercare is where I would be a part of the team.

Everyone thinks you're doing so well, but you know the truth. You're struggling under the weight of grief , change, and stress; and your life just doesn't look or feel like how you thought it would. You're feeling lost, confused, and stuck. All the hard feelings just keep coming at you, and your best efforts to deal with them aren't helping nearly enough. Meanwhile, you try to give everyone else the benefit of the doubt that they're doing their best to support you, but – let’s face it – their best kinda sucks, so you're left feeling isolated and alone. You want so much more for yourself, but have no idea how to get there.

*currently accepting new clients* Following a loss or life transition, it's common to feel disconnected, disillusioned, lacking confidence and motivation. If you've recently experienced a serious health diagnosis, divorce, estrangement, empty nest, or death . You may not be sure how to move forward into an uncharted landscape. You may question your beliefs, values, relationships, and priorities. You may miss your “old life” your “old self”. This is grief . Transformation. Transition. Right now, even the smallest effort can feel overwhelming, and I’m glad you’ve taken the step of coming here to see if therapy is for you.

My experience Grief , Loss , trauma, Panic Attacks, Phobia, Sexual Issues, Relationship Problems, Medical/Health concerns, Depression, Anxiety, Work & Career issues, Stress Management, and Addiction Recovery, Parenting, Family Issues and Conflict Resolution.
Is Therapy for you? Life is an incredible journey but is not without its challenges. While some of those experiences are beyond our control, many are the outcome of our choices. We can find ourselves in unfulfilling relationships, challenging times or lack luster careers. Our thoughts can take us to negative places where depression, anxiety and feelings of being overwhelmed may take control. Usually people seek out therapy when they are having a hard time managing it alone. It's one of those things that we resist, convinced that we can work it out ourselves. Most of the times we do yet when we feel unhappy, therapy can help.
