My Approach to Helping

"Grief is in two parts. The first is loss. The second is the remaking of life."- Anne Roiphe.

Whether it's the death of a loved one, a questioning of identity, a loss of job, relationship or home, family trauma or the natural transitions that come with the aging process; Grief can feel like being lost in a dark forest with no map. Who am I now? Where do I go from here? These questions can bring feelings of overwhelm, anxiety and hopelessness.

But like the butterfly cocoon, grief is part of the natural cycle of life that offers opportunity for growth, hope and profound transformation in the face of the complex mysteries of life.

So how does one cope with loss?

Everyone's path is unique and I am here to walk beside you on this journey of self discovery. Because reaching out takes courage, I provide a safe and caring space for clients to explore and express complicated emotions in a nonjudgmental way. Our time together will also include tools such as psychoeducation about the grieving process, anxiety/sleep management, coping skills and self-care practices during these life changing transitions.

More Info About My Practice

If you're thinking about therapy, you may have a lot of questions. I offer a free 15 minute consultation so we can see if we are a good fit.

If you are in need of a reduced fee, please inquire. Though I do not take insurance, I can provide a superbill for "out of network" insurances. I am currently accepting CalVCP clients.

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

Loss can be especially challenging when it is not acknowledge by society. This is called "disenfranchised grief" and it may include suicide, abortion, stillborn & miscarriages, loss of a pet or friend, family trauma & generational wounding, loss of relationships, home displacement and loss of identity.

These losses often lead to depression, anxiety and isolation.

I hold a safe space and offer tools for clients who feel that their grief is either not recognized or "too taboo" to speak about with others; That their grief is valid and needs tending to with mindfulness and compassion.

My Therapy Focus

My passion is working with dreams as they give us the map of where we were, where we are now and how to proceed. My clients have made fascinating discoveries through exploring how their dreams not only reflect their own story of loss but offer guidance, wisdom and hope. Because dreams can go to the core of issues, I use a gentle approach and encourage clients to explore at their own pace.

I also use holistic, mindful and transpersonal practices that includes working with ancestral wounding, archetypal & depth work and expressive arts, tools that empower clients to be the hero of their own story. By making more mindful changes and tapping into personal wisdom and strengths, I have witnessed powerful and sustainable transformations.
