My Approach to Helping

Life changes - often evoked by some kind of loss - can be rich opportunities for personal healing and growth. Together in therapy, we co-create a relationship of safety and trust in order to turn towards the grief brought about by loss, distress, confusion, and suffering with compassionate curiosity to discover what in you and your life wants to be healed, resolved, strengthened, or transformed. Throughout our work, I accompany you through the process of finding your own best answers as we strengthen your "muscle" of knowing.

More Info About My Practice

I welcome the opportunity to discuss your needs and concerns and invite you to call to schedule a free 15 minute meeting by phone or in person to see if we'd be a good fit.

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

Perhaps one reason why many of my clients express gratitude for feeling deeply seen and understood in our work together is that I bring years of experience and wisdom gained from living a variety of life chapters, both domestically and internationally. Some of these issues include: loss, grief, mid-life re-visioning, relationship renewal and discovering healthy ways to thrive through transitions.
