I know the decision to enter therapy is not always easy. Therapy is not easy. But therapy heals. When you seek therapy you put forth a willingness to acknowledge painful emotions and circumstances and a readiness to explore life events that are often scary, inevitably uncomfortable, sometimes even paralyzing. But the insight and meaning you will gain from therapy can lead to transformation, acceptance, comfort, and growth.
As a therapist I work with children, adolescents, teens and adults coping with everyday life experiences including depression and sadness, anxiety and panic, eating disorders, and addictions and traumas. My specialty and expertise is in working with people who are living with a serious illness or living with grief and loss, especially traumatic grief. In many circumstances my clients are able to grow and experience greater meaning in their lives, also known as post traumatic growth, after our work together.
I have the skills and experience to provide a compassionate environment for personal growth and healing. I possess the clinical knowledge and empathy needed to guide this process. And I believe there is beauty to be discovered through our challenges and traumas so we can live big and feel more alive. My work with clients and their families has taught me compassion, connection and courage. I know, through first hand experience, that therapy heals.
