About My Clients

Do you sometimes feel like an imposter in a life that no longer seems to belong to you or feel that your life is upside down and you have no idea what to do to get right side up again? The disorientation, confusion, depression and anxiety that can come with big life transitions can feel lonely and overwhelming. I can help. Having a compassionate, experienced guide on your journey can help ground you while you build a bridge between what has been and what will be. ​

My Background and Approach

I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years of experience working in a variety of settings with people in transitions who feel lost and overwhelmed. My style is warm and accepting, but practical and solution-focused, using humor, creativity and gentle confrontation. Together we can help you find some immediate relief, but we can also explore the ways your soul may be trying to speak to you with guided imagining, journaling, dream work and other, creative or nature-based practices. Mindfulness and honoring your personal resources/strengths, as well as your individual spirituality, are at the core of many of my interventions including approaches from various modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Transpersonal Therapy, and Motivational interviewing. You'll find grounding, new tools, be reminded of some of your internal strengths, & have support & guidance while forging a new path in your life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe we all strive towards self actualization & yearn to become the most authentic versions of ourselves. Various life transitions such as existential crisis and spiritual awakening, which may arise during divorce, new parenthood, job loss/change, grief/loss, sexual orientation or identity confusion, or other phase of life struggles often force us to evolve, ready or not. Having been through many of these transitions, I’m aware of how these experiences will break you, but also how they can be used as a catalyst for the spiritual alchemy of creating something beautiful and whole from the broken, wounded pieces. Without the struggle and suffering we often could not gain the hard-won wisdom needed to grow ourselves. It is our choice whether we harvest the gold that comes from this transformational time, or simply give up and become hardened by it, focusing more on our wounds than the gifts that may have come with them. I'd be honored to help support you on your journey.
