Announcement icon Currently, I provide phone, skype, facetime, and zoom sessions.
I specialize in psychotherapy to treat grief and loss, issues surrounding terminal or chronic medical issues, trauma, and depression. Life comes with loss and change: the death of a loved one, the loss of health - such as being diagnosed with a life altering condition - or a breakup, to name a few. Dealing with any loss and adjusting to major change often negatively affects us, and our emotional well-being and coping habits are sometimes compromised as a result. It is easy to fall into depression or develop anxiety if our coping is not managed and nurtured appropriately. Clinical supervision services also provided to ASWs reg.w/BBS
I am an empathetic and sensitive therapist who has worked in hospice care for two years providing end of life therapy and grief&bereavement counseling. I worked as a medicine hospital social worker for four years providing therapy to those diagnosed with cancer and veterans with a history of addiction in recovery. I provide custom mindfulness recordings.
My extensive work in hospice, oncology social work, and bereavement has given me the opportunity to learn from these resilient populations. I continue to carry this passion in my practice today in assisting those experiencing loss and chronic/terminal medical issues. I approach therapy with a deep sense of compassion and empathy. www.talkitouttherapy.com
