Are you coping with the death or loss of a loved one that has changed your life forever? Have family losses and changes left you feeling hopeless and distant from your spouse or your children? Maybe you are experiencing other life challenges like increased job stress, adjusting to a new family or coping with the aftermath of divorce. Or perhaps you are seeking a skilled counselor to really listen to your heart and honor your own wisdom in finding the path that is right for you at this important time in your life.
If you are facing losses and changes in your life that just seem overwhelming, please know that you do not have to face these challenges alone! As a therapist who specializes in helping people cope with the experiences of grief, loss and life transitions, I will walk side by side with you and help you find your way during your unique grief journey where sometimes just getting through the day is a great achievement!
I know how tough the dark days of grief can be and how difficult it can be to cope with the pressure to go on with life "as normal" when all services have concluded and friends and family have returned home to resume their lives. In today's fast past society where the message is frequently "grief must be brief", it truly does take courage to grieve!
It is my passion to strive to help empower you to build on your strengths, search for new possibilities, and come to feel more hopeful about your future! As a thoughtful and compassionate therapist, I believe that each individual, couple and family have within them wisdom they can trust, inner strengths they can call upon, and a belief in themselves they can summon to get them through tough times!
Over the years I have learned to never lose faith in the the ability of individuals, couples and families to cope with life's disappointments and believe in the power of families to work through problems, find hope, and grow closer to each other than they may have thought was possible! Your courage to seek assistance is not a sign of weakness but really a sign of strength to build your best life!
My counseling approach is to work together as a skilled and supportive team member with each individual, couple, and family. The idea and value that "we are all in this together" is adopted to highlight the commitment to work through challenges in a thoughtful, hopeful, and determined manner. I utilize my combined skills and knowledge in my best attempt to provide the most effective therapeutic intervention in any given moment. My goal is to help each individual, couple, and family find the hope, meaning, and healing they are searching for. After all, there is so much to be hopeful about!
No matter how dark the worst days of grief and bereavement may be, no matter how difficult it may be for your friends and family to really understand what your going through, I truly believe in the possibility that in time-over time, the dawn of a new day can slowly emerge out of the pain of loss and bring hope, healing, a clearer understanding of what was lost, and a new appreciation for life!

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
If you are ambivalent or unsure about seeking counseling-I can empathize with that concern. After all, even in the best of situations, it can be scary and unnerving to summon the courage to confide in a stranger. In my opinion, it is a true moment of courage to reach out for assistance-even if it does not work out the way one may have wanted-because doing something new, something different to increase the positive options in one's life is a self-affirming act of bravery. So, if you choose to reach out for assistance-remember that, in the end-you are the expert on your own life and on what you are going through. No one can live your life for you or make decisions for your life that only you can make. I can help you build on your strengths, validate your efforts to get to this unique point in your life, help you see things that are hard to see, and assist in increasing your life options so that you can build your best life-and thrive!
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
I believe that the therapeutic relationship-the connection between a client and a therapist is the most important factor for a positive outcome-and studies suggest that this is true. An individual, couple or family must have the assurance that their particular therapist "gets it", that they understand their point of view and can empathize with their unique pain. In the end, a therapists' education, training, experience, theoretical orientation, number of degrees/certifications, etc. does not really matter unless the client in front of them feels genuine trust and care in the context of a safe therapeutic relationship-a feeling that their counselor really can understand their pain and how they may feel. Each therapist has treatment strengths/weaknesses and cannot possibly be a good fit for every client, so it is not necessarily easy to find a good match-but nothing is better than a finding a good client/therapist fit-because it is a beautiful thing to be a part of, and lives can be changed for the better-which is the most beautiful thing of all!
