I specialize in working with grief .
My passion is helping people heal and grow through difficult experiences, such as loss , trauma and life stressors. Through over 20 years of working with grief and trauma, I have come to believe in the healing power of sharing our stories. In addition, I believe good counseling helps us move us out of "stuck" patterns of unhelpful coping and into a state of thriving in our relationships, work and life pursuits. I specialize in treating grief and life transitions, but also work extensively with relationship challenges, illness, depression, anxiety, stress and issues related to wellness.

Some of my specialties include adults recovering from childhood abuse/neglect, understanding and resolving loss and grief , strengthening couples and marriage preparation, and child-centered play therapy.
Most folks can handle the ups and downs of life unless their closest relationships are in trouble. That's what brings people to me. With over two decades as facilitator of personal and relational growth in individuals, couples and families, I am psycho-dynamic (seek to 'peel back the layers') with individuals, helping them to become free from the emotional baggage of childhood. I offer a systems-oriention with couples and families along with some Gottman tools and Prepare and Enrich. I developed a therapeutic program for a children's home in CA and served as their therapist and staff trainer for 5 years.

I enjoy working with college students and adults in transition, whether in the midst of changes around relationship, life stage, grief and loss , spiritual concerns, or work/education. I especially enjoy working with those seeking therapy for the first time. So often we humans try to avoid our pain or we get stuck in it. It is important to effective therapy to bring your engagement in seeking change, your honesty, and your openness to feedback. Please note that I am currently open on Mondays only.

My orientation to counseling, psychotherapy and hypnotherapy is essentially a strengths perspective with a solution focus. The strengths perspective acknowledges all the strengths, resources and instinctual imperatives within an individual that have helped the individual get to the present moment.The strengths perspective helps me scan for the resources needed to resolve or modfy the treatment concern.

I am skilled in listening not just to the spoken word, but also to the body and non verbal expressions. An essential component of my approach is to demonstrate and work with my clients on developing acceptance and compassion to themselves and others. Everyone who seeks therapy for medical, personal and interpersonal reasons is welcome to my clinic. I work with individuals, couples, families and groups.

Are you living life on autopilot too much of the time?

Are you feeling like maybe the trauma is winning at the game of hide and seek that you’ve been playing? I specialize in helping women shift away from the distressing hold of trauma, childhood wounds or anxiety, into a joyful and fulfilling life.

Sometimes we don't even consider asking for help when we're feeling stuck, so I'm glad you've begun that process. I have experience helping people through relationship struggles, mood instability, substance abuse, patterns of procrastination and compulsive behaviors - essentially the things we do to manage this sometimes painful human existence. I believe that our pain often originates from our relationships, and so relationships become an important part of change. I like to be curious, to teach you to be curious, to learn how the past impacts the present, and to once again introduce choice rather than our default behaviors.

If you or your teenager are struggling with the impacts of trauma, abuse, or loss (no matter how far in the past), there is hope. Using a trauma-informed, client-centered, and strengths-based approach to counseling, we will create a safe space for collaborative work and healing. We can also use mindfulness, somatic, and creative therapies if you feel drawn to that kind of work. I have particular experience working with people who have been impacted by sexual trauma; PTSD that feels out of control; family/relationship issues; attachment wounding; and significant loss .

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.
