Focus as a Therapist
My clients are individuals, groups, and families; adolescent to older adult. My expertise is in life transitions, grief and loss. Transition touches all of our lives and it can feel as though the ground we stand on is shaking. This can be true during normal developmental changes as well as traumatic events, health issues, relationship changes, and end of life.
What You Can Expect
My approach to therapy is based on a relationship of trust in which we can explore together how to navigate the confusing and sometimes uncharted territory that life brings. My hope is to be a compassionate presence who can teach, guide, reflect and learn alongside of you.
It is important to me that you feel comfortable bringing who you are physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually into therapy. My life and work are greatly influenced by the values of the social work profession: service, social justice, dignity and worth of the individual, importance and centrality of human relationships, integrity, and competence.
Individuals and families which included homeless and runaway youth, youth in foster care/adoption, first generation immigrant families, families struggling with violence, and women in prison. In the past seven years, through my position at Northfield Hospice, my life was deeply affected by witnessing and listening to the grieving process of individuals and families at the end of life.
I moved to Northfield in 2007 and have kept busy growing my passion for the great outdoors, asking hard questions about the purpose of life, and saying yes to spontaneous adventures with my young family of four.
