I work with a wide variety of issues, from separation, divorce, grief , ptsd, aging parents, and other life issues.
My style is highly interactive, focused on communication, and achieving client goals. It is important to me that my clients are comfortable with me and know that I am available to them. Making life changes is not always easy, but I believe in human resiliency and strength. As an example of this philosophy, I have changed my name back to my maiden name. My mother passed away from Alzheimer's disease, and for this reason, to honor her, I wanted to take my name back... human resiliency!!!

Have you experienced the loss of a person, a pregnancy, a relationship or dream? Grief effects the mind, the body and the spirit. It can feel overwhelming and without end. Family and friends mean well but often want you to "move on". Sometimes it is easier to just be quiet but it can be a lonely, anxious place to be.

My experience and skills include treating anxiety, depression, grief , aftereffects of trauma, and relationship issues.
My practice name is Wintertree Psychotherapy taken from an inspiring book titled, The Tree That Survived The Winter by Mary Fahy. The book is an adult fable for all who have faced dark, cold and lonely times and come out on the other side. When in crisis we seek safe, mindful problem-solving, and often discover an opportunity for personal growth. I provide a calm and supportive setting to reduce anxiety and stress, increase a sense of confidence and competence, and promote the creation of more satisfying connections to self and others. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families.

My approach to clinical practice is to create a warm, compassionate place where you can be heard, and heal. The process unfolds at your pace by using a variety of treatment modalities that best fit your specific goals and problem solving strengths. Human beings come from all walks of life, and share all manner of painful human experiences. Psychodynamic therapy can help address anxiety, depression, anger, caregiver stress, sexual identity, and painful loss from divorce, death , separation through foster care and adoption. From employment crisis to mid-life crisis, let me help you restore the peace of mind you deserve.

I provide a supportive empathic environment where clients feel safe to explore the complicated emotions that accompany losses whether through death , divorce, job loss , pet loss or chronic illness. Life losses can be overwhelming and at times result in depression and anxiety however with supportive therapy this grief can be overcome. I work closely with loved ones and caregivers in cases of acute and chronic illness; who may be faced with conflicting emotions and complex decision making.

As a certified advanced grief counselor, I’ve worked with individuals struggling with bereavement , end-of-life concerns.
Each person, with their life circumstances, is completely unique. I believe that change happens in an atmosphere of acceptance, compassion and care, and that hinges on the relationship between therapist and client. My own inner work impacts my life and the lives of my clients. I bring a sense of humility and perceptiveness to this relationship. When working with clients who are overwhelmed with fear and anxiety, I strive to draw my clients out through building a vessel which can contain the intensity of their emotions. Then they can hold their feelings, rather than drowning in them.

For more than 25 years I've helped clients deal with the stress that change often brings. The catalyst can come in many forms - the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, the diagnosis of illness, divorce, living with a chronic illness or, simply because you are at a point in life when you want to explore and direct your needs. I support the effort to improve your well-being, whether the need is short term or ongoing.

In addition to being certified in EMDR and Internal Family Systems Therapy, I am a trained facilitator for the Mindfulness Based-Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT), an evidence-based treatment program for sustainable weight loss without dieting.
Whether you’re struggling with stress, anxiety, or depression, psychotherapy can help you discover new perspectives and approaches for problems that are keeping you stuck. Exploring emotions and beliefs underlying self-defeating patterns of behavior creates opportunities for positive change and growth. Over 20 years of clinical experience combined with extensive training in specialized treatments for healing trauma and attachment wounds enables me to provide a customized approach to meet client’s goals.

Grief Therapists
Grief and Bereavement 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.
