My Approach to Helping

Is your life on a path you did not expect, and you're struggling to cope? Are you trying to be strong on the outside, but inside you feel like you are falling apart?

Life changes can become challenges... life crisis that leave you feeling depressed, anxious, angry, confused, and unlike yourself. You don't have to face this alone! I am here to support you on your journey so you can feel hopeful and strong again. I help you manage and understand your emotions, communicate more effectively, and regain control over your life.

Therapy with me offers you carrying, compassionate and professional support. The mind-body-spirit approach helps you discover new and compassionate language towards yourself, gain clarity and perspective, understand and connect with your thoughts, emotions and body. I work with you to build upon your strengths, address the challenges you face, and help you reach your goals. I am honored to walk with you on your journey toward a hopeful, fulfilling future.

My Therapy Focus

I offer counseling to adults who seek personal growth, struggle with loss and grief, and who need assistance managing life's transitions. I am particularly interested in and experienced with helping men and women navigate fertility issues, pregnancy loss, life without a child, and more.

My Guiding Ethical Principles

I'm a spiritual person and am both curious and respectful about learning what role (if any) spirituality plays in your life. If wished, I am open to incorporating one's faith and/or spirituality into our work in therapy.
