People who come to see me frequently say they feel overwhelmed, “stuck”, or unhappy. They may have just lost someone important to them or be going through a stressful situation or challenging transition. Sometimes, they are struggling to cope with anxiety, depression, or it may be that life doesn’t feel quite right and they’re not sure why.

I am a counselor specializing in complicated grief and traumatic bereavement. I believe positive change is possible at all ages but that sometimes we may need assistance with making this change happen. My goal is to provide a safe and supportive place that encourages self-exploration, allows you to rediscover your personal strengths, and helps you move toward healing, growth and a joyful life.



We all have a unique set of strengths and inner resources that help us through tough times. But, sometimes, daily stresses, life events, depression or anxiety can overwhelm our resources.


Change, loss and trauma are natural occurrences in life. Grief is our natural response to loss and change. If you are struggling with loss from a death or illness, I offer a safe and caring environment where feelings and thoughts can be expressed and hope can be renewed.


Loss comes in many forms. It is always difficult to lose someone important to us, but a sudden and unexpected death can give rise to special difficulties and make grief more complicated.


We all experience grief from loss at some time in our lives and each of us will experience it in our own unique way. There is no right or wrong way to grieve and no formula for healing, but it is helpful to understand the grief process and to learn healthy ways to cope.
