Special affinity for clients…

Favorite Therapy Moment

Life after loss can feel confusing, without direction, hopeless, full of regret or in some cases filled with relief. I believe that listening to you and receiving your story with compassion, will offer healing, hope, and an opportunity for positive change. In my work with individuals who have suffered loss, I endeavor to receive and hold their pain, sadness, anger, or other feelings and emotions with grace, while supporting them as they move toward positive change and renewed well-being.

My clinical expertise is in partnering with individuals who are experiencing grief following a sudden (unanticipated) or traumatic loss or for those who are in the active dying process or have a loved one who is dying. My hope is to support individuals in realizing a full life, however they define that, using a lens of post traumatic growth when appropriate. In addition to grief and loss, I work with individuals and couples aged 18 and older on adjusting to life transitions, stress, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and parenting skills.
