What's in a chair?
You have hopes, dreams, plans and
expectations. Sometimes life has
a way of sidetracking those plans.
Disappointment along with other
thoughts, feelings and behaviors can
create roadblocks on your path.
We all have experienced some kind of
loss in our lives; some losses can be
devastating and stop us in our tracks.
Emotional and psychological pain
can be immobilizing, generating fear,
stress, anxiety and other impediments
to healthy living. Daily functioning
can feel like mere survival. How we
deal with our losses is individual and
very personal.
These are times that need not be
faced alone.
Don‘t be afraid to
ask for help.
That’s when it’s important to reach
out to someone who can help,
someone who can understand and
empathize with what you are going
through and who can listen without
judgment or bias.
It can be very beneficial to have
collaborative conversations with
someone who is knowledgeable and
experienced in facilitating resolution
to your specific issues.

Rising above life’s
violations
I provide a comforting environment
where together we can explore the
many paths of your journey. You will
have a safe place to bring your pain,
your secrets, your thoughts and
feelings; where I can draw from my
experiences with others who have
gone through turmoil and help you
as I have helped them.
With my training in psychology
and many years of experience as a
licensed mental health practitioner
— specializing in grief and loss — I
can help you reclaim your authentic
self. Together we can find a path that
leads to relief, to hope and to possibility.
You can reduce the stress in your life,
resolve difficult issues, and heal.

judgment of myself.”

where I am going. She keeps me on
the path.”

secrets, and never felt judged.”
