My practice is focused on helping individuals and families recover from loss , whether you are grieving a recent loss or processing grief from years ago. I believe that grief is a deeply human response to loss that can be perfectly normal and feel awful at the same time. I offer authentic, open-hearted presence and compassionate witness to whatever emotions arise in grief , and believe that truly being seen in our grief is an initial step in healing. Rather than "moving on" I believe we learn to carry and integrate loss into our life story.

Grief is as much a part of the human experience as love or breath. Much of the time, grief quietly weaves in and out of our lives without much notice, but shapes who we are, nonetheless. However, there are times when grief hits more like a tidal wave, so significant it shatters all that is familiar and known to us. Naturally, the intensity of this kind of grief can leave one feeling overwhelmed, lost and alone. In these moments, creating community, meaningful connections, and providing a safe place to express grief are important steps in healing.

Through a meaning-focused process, I help clients find their own space to mourn, to celebrate the small victories, and to realize the way forward because they have found stability in their now.

My own life experience has led me to a special interest in the areas of grief and loss , relationship issues, trauma and PTSD, substance abuse, and anxiety and depression.
Many of us have found ourselves overwhelmed by the expectations put on us by others and ourselves. Past traumas may have us repeating patterns and cycles in our relationships that don’t serve us. We may put aside our problems or stuff our feelings about our losses, putting them on the back burner to deal with later, only to realize they have started to boil over. In an effort to cope, we may engage in behaviors that prevent us from being the best version of ourselves. Often these difficult life transitions put us in a state of upheaval, leaving us feeling hopeless, anxious or depressed. Seeking therapy is a big step and a brave one.

I tailor my work to best meet the needs of those who are struggling with a variety of issues including but not limited to grief and loss , trauma, depression & anxiety, and major life transitions.
I know all too well that life can be trying. Sometimes we find ourselves lost, scared, stuck, sad, angry and/or confused. Maybe you have recently experienced a significant life event that has led to these feelings, or maybe you’ve found yourself here without being able to point to a specific cause. In either case, I will provide you with a safe and judgement-free space to discuss and explore whatever it is you’re going through, with the goal of increasing insight and mitigating emotional pain.

Losing a loved one can be the most difficult time in your life. Emotions are often surprising in their strength or mildness. Grief often breaks a person completely from the inside out. Grieving is hard work, you can get worn out, and feel battered. It can take a lot longer to work through grief than most people realize. People around you may think it’s helpful for you to not talk or cry or focus on your loss but actually, this is just what people need to do. The goal is to not stay stuck, to move through it—and this is part of the process. Grief doesn’t get better by ignoring it and trying to ‘get over it.’

I am very interested in working with individuals and concerns surrounding addiction, grief , and difficult life transitions.
You deserve to live a life in which you feel heard, seen and understood without fear of judgment. With the fast-paced and uncertain world that we live in today, people can often find it hard to express themselves or feel validated in their experiences. We often think that we don't have the time to spend on ourselves, feel incapable of change, or are simply unsure of where to begin. I am here to assure you that you are not alone in any of these concerns and to make a promise to do my best to guide you towards your ideal lifestyle.

My clinical work has focused on supporting and guiding children/adolescents and their families through struggles with divorce, grief , physical health issues, ADHD, depression, and anxiety.
After a decade away, I’m thrilled to be back practicing therapy in Northern Virginia! I received my MS from Virginia Tech’s MFT program, and worked in Fairfax county in various agency positions for several years, and eventually in private practice. My husband and I moved away (to several different states) before finding our way back to the mid-atlantic region. We have three children and receive daily lessons from them about love, play, forgiveness, trust, and more!

Grief Therapists
Grief 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.

If you're looking for a Falls Church grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Falls Church.
