My specialty is working with those who grieve a loved one or loss due to circumstances including but not limited to infertility, miscarriage, financial loss, illness, or relationship status.
Hello and welcome to my page! As one who has experienced multiple losses, I understand the process we all go through as we maneuver through the various challenges that life brings. Whether big or small, anticipated or not, a measure of stress accompanies change and it can be helpful to have someone who “gets it” join you and hold hope for you when you do not have the capacity to hold it for yourself.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for an Old Lyme relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Old Lyme.
