BRING ME YOUR BROKEN HEART. Suddenly alone, feel you're sinking? Hopes and dreams washed away? Afraid you'll never feel safe again? Have you lost not only a life partner, but also a piece of yourself? I'll help you heal your broken heart and find your beat. MEND A RUPTURED RELATIONSHIP while honoring yourself and nurturing what you value. CREATE BALANCE in a time of stress. COPE with the challenges of triggered by the pandemic. FEEL RELEIF from gnawing anxiety or draining depression. KNOW that you are not alone, for you can GROW, BETTER, WITH SUPPORT.
I help you use the emotional jolt of a broken relationship or a challenging life situation to uncover powerful truths about yourself, find your sense of self, emerge stronger and wiser. I draw on Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems Theory and Attachment Theory to design therapy uniquely right for you.
Experiencing the joys, heartaches and challenges of marriage, children, eldercare, deaths, empty nest, retirement, divorce, career change, remarriage, blended family --all has prepared me for what I am truly meant to be doing now. I bring humility, devotion and inspiration to the journey I take with each of my clients.
