25 years of experience

Hi I am a LCMHC I have a holistic approach to helping clients work thru their grief and loss . It can be a loss of a love one thru gun violence.or sudden death like a heart attack or some other health issue .Loss of a relationship ,a divorce or a devastating medical diagnosis or a change of health can and does bring a lot of grief . Even being on an eating plan that changes our weight and brings up many feeling and emotions as we struggle to be successful. I have worked with those going thru the aging process which often means they cannot complete tasks and do things that they used to do resulting in a sense of loss But I have seen in my practice clients find a sense of purpose emerge as they experience moment to moment the myriad of feelings , sensations that are often associated with grief . Going thru a loss can be a very difficult time in one’s life and we often have a need to see a professional to help us navigate the rough terrain of grief . I have also seen it be thru grief and loss one finds their purpose. There is hope . . .

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session I will begin to get to know you as well as you can get to know me . We do that by you giving me your information and me asking question about you . You can ask any question of me as well .

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Having work with a variety of people one thing that has been a consistent feedback is that they felt comfortable with me and found that they could freely share . They also felt heard and accepted .

My treatment methods

Mind-body approach

When we are in transition with loosing weight we need to learn to stay in touch with our bodies. I work with mind body techniques with my self as well As my clients . I find it extremely helpful and liberating when we can sit with and be with a sensation which as everything does it changes . When we are in transition whether it be with a weight loss program or loosing someone we love the mind body approach can be freeing but also healing.

Compassion Focused

I have been working with people for over 25 years . It is most important to start where the client is by accepting exactly where they are at the present moment . If you are grieving or if you are changing your life to be a Reflection of who you really are it is important to be compassionate to yourself as well as the counselor set up an environment where you feel a lot of compassion .

Acceptance and commitment (ACT)

No matter what client I am working with if I do not bring a level of acceptance and commitment to our session no healing will take place .
