Grief is a reaction to loss- whether that be from the death of a loved one or the loss of a relationship or lifestyle.

The process of recovering from loss can bring up a wide range of feelings from sadness, depression, anger, guilt, or regret.

There is no one way to grieve.  Some people are able to recover from grief fairly easily and others can become stuck or fall into a depression.  Grief therapy is a way to address your grief and to learn to adjust to new changes in your life or identity in a safe, compassionate way.

“With time, commitment, and a skilled counselor to help, people have the inherent capacity to change their lives.”



How do you feel about who you are?  Healthy self-esteem is not something that happens overnight. It is something that is earned through honest self-reflection,  an understanding of why we do what we do, and self-care. Many of our beliefs about ourselves are learned in childhood and working with a skilled therapist can help to undercover ways of thinking that hinder you.  In therapy, we work together to understand your negative and positive beliefs and develop skills to raise your self-esteem.


Alcohol, Food & Drugs

Whether you are plagued by food or body image, finding yourself questioning your use of alcohol, or struggling with drugs, therapy can help address where you are stuck.  Self destructive behavior is a symptom of a much larger problem. We would work together to help you understand why you do what you do.  At the same time, we would develop strategies to help you find peace.



Are you lonely?  Loneliness can cause painful, even harmful reactions in both our mental and physical health.  In therapy, I would work with you in a safe and compassionate way to help you identify reasons why you may feel lonely and help uncover ways you can change your circumstances.  Through understanding yourself better, you are able to make different choices in your life and change your patterns.


Age Transitions

Whether you are turning 30 or 50, it can be painful to accept life transitions. In therapy, we would work together to better understand how you feel about yourself and where you are in your life so that you are better equipped to face life transitions and make positive choices.
