Are you ready for something to shift in your life? I believe people come to therapy when the timing is right and my hope is to help facilitate the transformation clients are seeking. Folks ready for change typically fit well with my psychotherapy style, which focuses on problem-solving present challenges while addressing past events and trauma. I take a straightforward approach in addressing family and relationships challenges, self-esteem issues, trauma, depression and anxiety. I also work with clients seeking clarity, direction, and alternative ways of viewing their circumstances. I value a holistic approach that incorporates mind/body/spirit and my goal is to assist clients to become empowered individuals who can find joy and satisfaction in their lives. As a former medical and hospice social worker, I frequently counseled clients through grief, in its various forms. Loss may be due to divorce or ending of a relationship, loss of independence due to aging, illness or accident, or the death of a loved one. A unique subspecialty of my practice is geared toward offering grief counseling to those who've experienced the loss or death of a pet. This is my passion, as an animal lover who has experienced such a loss. I look forward to connecting with you, pet-owner or not!

More Info About My Practice

I currently accept HMSA, UHA, HMA and HMAA. I also provide therapy for Cigna clients as an out of network provider. I accept fee for service in the form of cash, credit and debit cards.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Grief counseling for all forms of loss, including accidents, suicide, prolonged illness, pet loss, among others. I also assist people who are expecting a loss, such as the possible approaching death of a loved one. Grief frequently shares many features with trauma, therefore I may choose to use techniques such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to facilitate progress, depending on the individual's needs.
