My goal is to provide a safe, supportive, confidential and non-judgmental environment- to serve you with presence and respect. While my work is predominantly humanistic and client-centered, I also draw from and rely on aspects of CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Gestalt and Narrative Counseling techniques. My belief is that each individual has the ability to find his/her answers - my role is to help facilitate the process.

I have an MBA in Marketing and an MS in General Counseling. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), NBCC Certified. Currently in Private Practice, I have worked in Hospice and an Outpatient Cancer Center. I have facilitated Support Groups (Grief, loss, chronic illness), provided peer supervision, educational workshops and ceremonies of remembrance.

Techniques I Use


  • Humanistic  External link

    The focus of my training is General Counseling with expertise in grief and loss; this work involves humanistic counseling theory - supportive, person-centered and non-judgmental. My role is to companion the bereaved, which involves a holistic and genuine presence. While other theories come into play during sessions (narrative, experiential,family systems, CBT,) my strongest focus is Humanistic.

Issues I Treat


  • Family Conflict External link

    Each family member may be unique, but is also part of a family 'system'. A life change or transition may interrupt the family system; the therapeutic environment can help to identify the common goal and provide the setting for enhanced communication and collaboration.

  • Chronic Pain or Illness External link

    Working with clients dealing with chronic pain and illness is part of my experience in the area of grief and loss. Living with pain/illness is a loss of life as they knew it before - the process gives clients an opportunity to identify/discuss issues associated with their condition- to feel validated and supported; and to learn coping techniques.

  • Self-Esteem External link

    Self esteem (or lack of) is inherent in so many of our lives. My role is to help people identify the fears, beliefs (negative thoughts) that effect one's sense of self; and to help challenge the negative thoughts/beliefs with more accurate 'stories'/ interpretations. The goal is to identify one's negative thoughts of self, and provide skills for the client reconstruct with healthier realities.

  • Loss or Grief External link

    My area of expertise is in grief and loss -having worked in Hospice and an Outpatient Cancer Center. Grief and loss encompasses life transitions, divorce, job loss, chronic illness and, of course, death. Grief is a natural, normal process and my role is to offer support, validate (normalize) and companion people through this process.

  • Anxiety External link

    Having worked extensively in the area of grief and loss, anxiety is often a presenting symptom; working with clients to identify source of anxiety and either illuminate skills they have or help them find identify/learn skills to regulate the anxiety is part of the therapy process.
