If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

I would love for potential clients to know that they have choice in their therapy, that they are the driver. As your therapist, I will never tell you what to do but we will come up with some possible options and you will choose which one is right for you.

In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

Once you meet me you will realize I am a very laid-back and relaxed type of therapist. My main goal in the first couple of sessions is to get to know you and what your goals are for your therapy. I have a very conversational type that puts people at ease.

What are some the unique issues faced by clients in your particular field of specialization, in terms of mental health education, care, and/or treatment?

In my field of grief, many people need to be able to talk about their loved ones who have died and sometimes it’s in the form of stories with laughter, sometimes stories with tears. Many people don’t realize that grieving can be recounting cherished memories of loved ones and that it may not involve tears.

Work History

My work experience consists of working with Hospice patients, their bereaved families, veterans and college students on an individual basis. My main passion is grief work as well as working with individuals trying to find their own journey in life. My practice is built on a foundation of client centered, strength based principles and I work in a holistic manner. I am a 25 year survivor of breast cancer and have some knowledge of what it’s like to experience illness and fear. To use that as a springboard for helping someone else in that situation is one of my strengths as a therapist.
