About My Clients

I am particularly interested in helping those who are bereaved through loss of loved ones including beloved pets, those facing terminal illness, those involved in caregiving of family members, and those coping with chronic pain in their own lives, especially fibromyalgia. I also have a special place in my heart for those going through life transitions such as becoming an adult, marriage, divorce, growing a family, and entering retirement.

My Background and Approach

My own life experience provides me with a rich source of empathy, understanding, and practical skills to draw upon as I work With my clients. I have been married for over 25 years and am Mom to our teenage developmentally delayed daughter. When I am working with families and couples I use a systemic approach. When I am working with individuals I rely on a humanistic/Rogerian approach. When children are my clients I use art, play, and sand tray therapies. I want my clients to gain resilience and a sense of meaning in their day-to-day lives by understanding how they arrived where they are in life and how they can make choices to create the future they desire.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe every person has innate value and purpose in this life and has an inborn desire to become their best self. Unconditional and nonjudgmental acceptance paired with the belief that everyone can change if they truly desire to and work to achieve that change form the foundation of my practice. Honesty with my clients and their honesty with me creates the positive environment for change to occur. Being asked to accompany my clients on their life journey and quest for creating their best self is my joy and my privilege.

  • Agnosticism
