I specialize in grief and loss, chronic illness , end of life, personal development and life transitions.
Life is full of gains and losses. While our gains make us feel good, our losses help us grow. I believe that in understanding how to accept and heal our losses we can transform our lives most challenging events into acts of personal growth, self-empowerment and change. This change gives us the tools to cope with life, ourselves and others in a more gratifying way.

I am honored to work with people facing challenges in chronic illness (ALS, early on-set Dementias, MS, Parkinson's, TBI, Stroke, Cancer), end of life, caregiver burnout, finding meaning, depression/anxiety, non-dominant gender, romantic orientations, trauma, toxic masculinity and Sex-Positivity.
Afternoon availability, I practice from mindfulness, compassion focused and positive psychology approaches. We resist to the very normal experience of suffering, as if something has gone terribly wrong. In this awareness we acknowledge that we are disconnected from the fullness of our experience and ourselves; the mind, body and our relationships. We can incline toward your experience and yourself in these areas with curiosity, cultivating tenderness, interconnectedness, and wise attention. Within all of us these precious core values have a capacity to hold space and a sense of wholeness that runs deeper than our problems.

I help individuals, couples, and families navigate complex relational issues involving trauma, depression, anxiety, acculturation, chronic illness , and life transitions.
I believe that healing occurs when people are given the space to explore their unique personal experience to better understand how it colors their worldview, sense of self, and relationships with others. Within a safe therapeutic relationship, I work with my clients to make meaning out of both mundane and extraordinary moments, unlocking their ability to live a more fully present, authentic life.

My background has been varied but where I really feel I can make the most impact is with clients that are struggling with life transitions, chronic illness , grief, loss and end of life care.
Needing help with a particular issue or concern is not a sign of weakness. In fact, I believe that reaching out for help is actually a sign of strength! As a Clinical Social Worker for more than 30 years, I would be honored to help you move through whatever it is that is holding you back from learning who your “best self” really is.

I offer a welcoming space to explore how disorienting transitions, loss, intense challenges and illnesses can hold within them the possibility for profound personal transformation, renewed vitality, and deeper connections. It was my own journey with chronic illness that began in my twenties that evolved into a calling to support others in their healing. Since 2008, I have worked as a licensed naturopathic physician, health coach, author, educator, and now mental health counselor. My personal and professional experiences have engendered an embodied compassion and humility for the ways in which life can bring us to our knees.

I have a background of over 10 years of experience in medical social work and in Palliative Medicine and have provided counseling to those with serious and chronic illness , those at the end of life, those who are caring for a loved one, ambiguous grief, and coping with stress, anxiety, and depression.
Are you experiencing heightened anxiety or sadness due to personal loss, a major life transition, disruption in a relationship, health concerns, or the compounded stress and grief of living during the pandemic? Any kind of change or loss, even if a positive one, can unmoor us from our identity, leaving us confused, anxious, and uncertain of ourselves. Connecting with our values, what brings us meaning, and attending to our grief can allow for more ease and joy.

I enjoy working collaboratively with my clients, helping each to develop the specific and unique tools necessary to cultivate a more satisfying and fulfilling life. My approach is to first actively listen, gaining a thorough understanding of the history of the situation and symptoms, the presenting challenges, and any other influences such as family history, cultural or racial factors, chronic illness , and economic stressors. We will then work together to identify treatment goals and ways to reach them. I work with a broad spectrum of clients ranging in age from 16 and above, offering individual, couples, and family therapy.

My areas of focus include anxiety, depression, relationship issues, women’s issues, trauma, existential questions, shame, learning difficulties, chronic illness , systemic issues, and aging.
I believe that within each of us there lies uncharted terrain, eagerly waiting to be explored. Therapy can be a great tool to explore those domains. My primary therapeutic approach is Relational Psychodynamic Psychotherapy which means building an authentic therapeutic bond, exploring relational themes from childhood, and dynamics in the present moment are key components to my therapeutic work. Within this modality I integrate experiential components such as visualizations, mindfulness/meditation, movement, energy awareness, and more. I believe that approaching therapy in these ways can offer a more embodied, formative experience.

You are on the verge of taking a brave step. Perhaps you have encountered a new challenge, or have realized you need a new way of coping with an old problem. Often this is a moment of crisis, and at the same time, an opportunity to learn and to grow. I am passionate about working with clients who are coping with major life changes. If a medical condition (e.g. brain injury, post-concussion syndrome, stroke, spinal injury, chronic dizziness/pain, chronic illness or critical illness/COVID) has affected you or your loved one, or if your quality of life is impacted by treatable conditions such as PTSD or anxiety, we may be a good fit.
