A little more about who I love to work with:
I work with individual clients, families, couples, and provide relationship therapy.
My “big three” therapeutic focus areas include:
- Grief and loss: Losing a loved one is never easy. At times we experience a broad array of emotion ranging from sadness, to anger, and even sometimes relief. Death is universal, though we certainly all cope with grief and loss differently. A lot of people report being inundated and overwhelmed with texts, calls, visits and casseroles in the few months following a death. But what happens when those calls, texts, and visits dwindle? Together we will work to accept and process the reality of the loss, adjust to a “new normal” and establish an enduring connection while healing.
- Life Transitions: Perhaps you are going through a break up? Setting boundaries with toxic family members? Becoming a new parent or caring for an aging loved one? Maybe you are starting a new job, decided to change majors, or starting a new semester? Experiencing a recent move or empty nest syndrome? In our sessions you will receive support and gain skills to navigate this new terrain.
- Chronic health issues: Increased fatigue, isolation, a never ending list of doctors appointments, disease progression and financial strain are just a few of the potential stressors in navigating chronic health issues. In our sessions I will hold space for you to talk about the tough stuff. For a lot of people this tough stuff includes their changing bodies, increased dependence for care needs, sadness, and anger. Throughout our sessions you have dedicated time to process these thoughts, feelings, emotions as well as the chance to add coping skills & mindfulness techniques to your toolbox.
