I help individuals develop coping skills to manage life’s many challenges (stress, depression, grief, trauma, domestic violence, relationships, infertility, pregnancy and infant loss).
In life’s journey we experience different challenges which may impact our mental health well-being. Counseling may provide the support and guidance to cope and overcome these challenges. It takes courage to take the first steps towards change and seeking out a more fulfilling and happier life. I believe that you are the expert of your own story and building on one’s strengths, motivation, and self-esteem is an essential part to making positive growth and change. I am here to support and empower you in your journey.

"Some prisons don't require bars to keep people locked inside. All it takes is their perception that they belong there. A soul who believes that he/she can't leave, doesn't."

Congratulations! If you are reading this, you have found the courage to take an important step towards taking care of yourself. Perhaps counseling is something you have been putting off for a long time believing that others would judge you as weak, or that other needs in your life were more important. We have all experienced various degrees of trauma in our lives. Sometimes we find it difficult to move forward because of overwhelming emotions and self-limiting beliefs. Obtaining counseling is in fact a strong and wise decision. I would consider it a privilege to join you on your journey of discovery and healing.

Be proud of yourself. If you have found my profile, you have already taken the first step toward helping yourself, this may be the most difficult of them. For the second step, if you're looking for support toward healing past traumas or navigating any symptoms you may not even understand, such as anxiety or depression. If you're tired of "being over dramatic", having nightmares, panic attacks or even, struggling to get out of bed, take that second step. Therapy can be scary, but so can the thought of being stuck in the cycle your body and mind are finding you in now.

Grief Therapists

How long does therapy take for grief?

There is no exact timeline for grief counseling. Some people may start to feel better after just a few sessions, while others may take months or longer to feel relief. Some specific approaches, including some types of CBT, may involve a set number of sessions, or therapy may be open-ended until the patient determines they are ready to wrap up. Just as there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there is no right or wrong way to seek therapy for grief.

When should you seek therapy for grief?

Many people mistakenly believe that their grief needs to be debilitating or all-encompassing to warrant therapy. This is not the case. While people who experience severe, prolonged grief—particularly those who are considering self-harm or engaging in unhealthy substance use—are especially likely to benefit from therapy, so too are people whose grief is less intense but still interfering with well-being or daily functioning. In practice, almost anyone struggling to process a loss could benefit from grief counseling.

Can grief be managed without therapy?

Oftentimes, yes. Grief is a near-universal part of being human, and many find that their grief, while profound, does not stop them from participating in day-to-day life and steadily eases over time without outside help. For others, however, the harsh pain of early grief persists for months or years or leaves them unable to function. This group is especially likely to benefit from seeing a therapist, who can guide them through their grief and help them reconnect with the world.

What happens if grief is left untreated?

Because grief does not in itself necessitate therapy, untreated grief will often resolve on its own. However, for some people—particularly those who would qualify for a diagnosis of prolonged grief disorder—untreated grief can be a source of seemingly endless pain or lead them to withdraw from the world. In such cases, treatment can be indispensable, as it can help an individual adapt to the loss and start living again.
