About My Clients

My clients are individuals who may also be patients, survivors, caregivers, family members, adult children, and other relations of an individual living with illness or pain. I also work with adults experiencing grief/loss, professional burnout, life transitions, pandemic fatigue and Covid-19 related concerns. I work with young adult and adult individuals. My practice is inclusive of all individuals and values diversity, equity & inclusion.

My Background and Approach

As a clinical social worker with a board-certification in palliative & hospice care and clinical experience in a cancer center, acute care hospital and home hospice, I am in a uniquely qualified to provide therapy in the context of illness, survivorship, loss, medical decision making and navigating the health care system. As a clinician in a hospital setting prior to and during Covid-19, I have first hand experience of the trauma, moral distress and burnout risk brought on by the pandemic. My approach to therapy is based on mutual trust & respect. I provide a safe space for you to be valued, seen & heard. I meet you where you are & do not judge you. Together we clarify and prioritize goals for therapy and develop a plan for moving forward that will work for you. If you are in crisis, the immediate work is on crisis resolution and restoring functioning. We will clarify your values and identify resources and tools to guide you now and to take with you for support along the journey.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I firmly believe we are all unique individuals, with our own histories, experiences, and backgrounds that shape us into who we are today. There are no universal right and wrong feelings or experiences; rather feelings & experiences are as individual as we each are. You are the expert of you. I am the expert in the therapeutic process. We come together as equals to discover what works best for you and move forward for sustainable change. Simply put, I provide a safe space for you to be valued, seen and heard. Together we strategize a personalized plan to prioritize and address your concerns, integrating difficult circumstances into your life in a way is manageable and comfortable in order to regain a sense of control, balance and clarity.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
