Welcome! I am passionate about providing a safe space to process grief and loss, including traumatic, stigmatized and ambiguous loss.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in ,
Caring for a loved one with a medical and or mental health diagnosis can be challenging at times. Sometimes folks put their own needs and health on the back burner when they're trying to navigate their loved ones needs. I enjoy helping to support people and find practical self-care strategies so that they are able to manage caregiver stress while supporting their loved one.
I am a member of the Association of Oncology Social Workers and have experience working in an out-patient oncology setting to support patients and their families as they face this life altering diagnosis. I've been able to assist people with the practical and logistical concerns that arise to help reduce barriers to care as well as support people from a psycho-social perspective due to the many emotions and feelings that come up upon diagnosis.
I work with people experiencing grief and loss from a companioning perspective to help decrease stigma and often times pathologized responses to those experiencing grief and loss. I have experience working with all types grief and loss, including abstract/secondary losses, pet loss, abortion, miscarriage, stigmatized loss and more. I have advanced training in the treatment of complicated grief from Columbia University.
