About My Clients

Whether recent circumstances are challenging, or aspects of the past need to be reconciled and faced, my clients are wanting to process and cope and move toward holistic healing. They want to own their lives and feel better. They want clarity, meaning, understanding, collaboration, and support reaching that place through their challenges, anxieties, or grief. Their capacity for resilience and vulnerability and insight humbles me daily, and I meet them where they are with respect and empathy.

My Background and Approach

These beautiful, unpredictable, messy moments of life shape us, and I've learned that defining who we are through these moments helps us build the life we want. It's hard work. I help people navigate and sift through it all, and I believe in a collaborative approach. I hold a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and am certified in Trauma Response Services. I am trained in grief and loss counseling, and have worked in community mental health, and led processing groups and classes internationally, and with a variety of nonprofits, working in the grief and trauma realms for 20 years. I'm an adult grief group facilitator with the Dougy Center. I am an advocate for equality and social justice, and an ally for marginalized groups.I utilize an integrated theoretical approach based in person-centered, strengths-based, EFT, and CBT. I work with a wide range of individuals and diagnoses including anxiety, and I specialize in grief and loss, chronic illness, and compassion fatigue.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe we all hold the capacity to grow and move toward a life of health and happiness. Social, cultural, and family systems influence our perspective. Sometimes our bodies betray us. Sometimes we need to heal from-or at least learn to carry-past traumas or losses. In other words, context matters. The mind, heart, and body are all interconnected, and tools like breathwork and mindfulness can help improve our quality of life. Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked for years with marginalized and trauma-affected individuals using tools like art and writing and group work to process trauma. That work, combined with chronic illness issues with my child and myself, and a sudden death in our immediate family all combined to lead me to do this work. There are tools for coping, and insight to be gleaned from what we've been through. There are connections to be made within ourselves, our community, and even our DNA through things like epigenetics. I help my clients see their light.
