I have been working with people faced with significant loss for the past twenty years. People often ask me if this work is depressing - I always say that the stories I hear are not only stories of loss - they are love stories. We grieve becaue we love. Sometimes that love is complicated, and so the grief is complicated. Sometimes the loss changes us in ways that we feel are unbearable and unsustainable. My work is about helping you move from a state of deep pain and preoccupation with loss to a place where you can reengage with life.

My practice is gentle and focused on supporting you in helping yourself. I offer supportive counseling and empowerment by promoting self-help and self-compassion. I do not diagnose or label unless it is useful in an educational way . Instead, I am more concerned with what is happening in the here-and-now, what happened before, and in helping you figure out "what now?". Maybe you feel stuck and unsure how to navigate a life transition or adjustment. I work with individuals and families on healing the ripple effects of trauma, addiction, codependency, and grief .

Choosing the right therapist can make all the difference. You may be someone who understands that a behavioral issue is getting in the way of successful relationships at work or at home, but can't figure out how to change it. You may be someone who is going through a life transition such as the birth of a new baby, career change, retirement, or loss of a partner. You may feel anxious, down, or have a general inability to feel happy. Together we can enhance your appreciation of yourself and those around you.

I am equipped to treat individuals facing major life transitions, working through relationship difficulties, coping with grief and loss , and living with chronic health conditions.
While many of us face similar life challenges, the ways in which these experiences impact us varies greatly. I strive to tailor my therapeutic approach to the needs of each unique individual, couple, and family. I utilize the process of mutual exploration of issues that stem from the past while staying rooted in the present issues that prompted the decision to seek out help. In times of crisis, I shift into a more active role and focus on skills coaching and managing stress. I provide individual therapy to adolescents, adults, and older adults and have experience treating families and couples.

My therapeutic approach includes creating an environment where one can feel safe to freely express needs and desires without fear, shame or guilt. Often, a byproduct of this process is to become more comfortable and accepting of yourself. Clarity and confidence are newly discovered benefits of the therapy experience. My 25 years of experience provides me with the professional skills to assess and diagnose an individual. I set reachable goals and identify under-lying psychological barriers that can interfere with reaching your potential. My experience enables me to examine the complexities of unconscious habits.

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.
