One of the biggest challenges people face is answering the overwhelming question: What comes next? Whether it’s trying to navigate a loss , career or life change, or the fear, anxiety and uncertainty of a changing and complex world, I feel called to walk along side people as they forge a path ahead. I love to collaborate with people and help them uncover their own inner wisdom. By helping individuals to learn new skills, they are better able to quiet the storm of emotions inside them and make better choices that bring them greater peace.

How are you dealing with the many losses in life? The loss of a loved person, your health, a companion animal, relationships, a job, sense of self. Most of us are taught to not pay attention to loss and feelings of sadness. Yet, ignoring or pushing away waves of loss can compound the difficult feelings, making them bigger. This often means that the losses begin to control us. My practice centers on how to work with your losses directly and indirectly and find in them a source of richness and direction. I also offer practical strategies for navigating periods of loss .

Healing happens by moving through things, not by trying to go around them. My focus in the counseling work I do has long been in the fields of grief and substance use, especially in terms of where grief / loss has fed addictive behavior. It makes sense. Big feelings are uncomfortable, especially the ones we consider negative. It is understandable that we try to avoid those feelings but the reality is it doesn’t work. In my work with people I support them in gently and compassionately facing the things they don’t want to face, whether grief , addiction, anxiety, trauma or a more general sense of not being the person you want to be.

CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS ... Life can feel so upside down right now. Perhaps you are experiencing loss , a struggle, dealing with grief , setbacks in life, feelings of sadness or despair, anxious or just unsure of how to cope during these unknown times. While such feelings are difficult and real, pain and growth in life can coexist. What is most important is, today you have taken a positive first step seeking support. You have made a choice to do something different with your life. Our mind, which means our thinking, our brain and our body serve as indicators of what's working or not.

One of the greatest joys of being a psychologist is seeing and helping individuals and couples create a better life for themselves. Some people I have seen have overcome or at least reduced their level of fear and anxiety. Some, who had severe depression to the point of experiencing suicidal ideations and wanting to isolate themselves from others, were able to overcome their depression and to live more productive lives. Some couples, who were on the brink of separation and divorce, were able to resolve their differences and recommit themselves to a better life together. People who had lost loved ones were able to work through their grief and to realize that their loved ones will never be forgotten and will forever remain in their hearts. These are just a few examples of how people whom I have seen have been able to transform their lives through counseling. During our session I make every effort to provide a safe, nurturing and empathic environment to make it easier for individuals and couples to share their concerns. I use cognitive behavioral therapy, hypnosis and other methods as necessary to help the person/couples achieve their goals for feeling better about themselves

I AM NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. People's reasons for seeking therapy are as varied as the individuals themselves. For some, therapy is part of a broader approach to life in which insight and inner work are seen as core elements to living well and expansively. For others, the step to seek therapy is taken out of pain and suffering and after much deliberation. At times our internal experiences are so painful, they prevent us from fully engaging in our lives and relationships. Therapy can help you learn to hold with care and confidence all your thoughts, feelings and memories while moving through life in a meaningful way.

Grief Therapists
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 Durham grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Durham.
