"Grief comes out of nowhere and slams you - hard. Whether you've recently lost a family member, career, your health, or someone or something else that you hold dear, the loss can knock you off-center. You used to manage your life pretty well, but now you can barely keep things together. You're distracted and irritable. You want to get back to normal, but you don't know how to get through the intense feelings that threaten to overwhelm you. And if your child or teen has also been affected by this loss, it's even more difficult to envision what "normal" might look like for your family, or how to get there."

"I provide a safe, comfortable, and healing space in which to explore feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. I help individuals (adults and adolescents), couples, and families explore challenges, patterns, preferences, successes, and strengths. I strongly believe that greater awareness is the key to a personal growth. Increased awareness leads to acceptance (self and otherwise) and actions more reflective of one's values and desires."

"It can be all too easy to get stuck in self defeating patterns that leave you frustrated and alone, without clear answers available. Initiating a collaborative process with a dedicated therapist can help you uncover hidden conflicts and motivations, as well as your deepest hopes and capabilities to create the life you desire. As the process of therapy unfolds you may find yourself thinking of past problems in new ways, challenging old beliefs, and feeling invigorated by the momentum of unlocking your truest self. "

"In my 27 years of experience, much of it devoted to working with the transgender community, I have come to believe healing takes place when a strong therapeutic alliance has been established. Therapy is about understanding and effecting the way you feel about yourself while learning how your behavior effects relationships with others. Being able to be vulnerable and feel safe with a therapist goes a long way. Change can - and does - take place. Be open minded and prepared to laugh, cry and everything in between."

One reason this is so common is that many popular approaches to therapy fail to address you as a whole person.
