Bio

Our lives are forever changed when someone we love dies. We are the bereaved, the mourning, the vulnerable. We are hit by waves of painful emotions-grief, anger, depression, guilt, fear, anxiety and a longing for our loved ones. Sometimes, we are simply numb, unable to move, act, or think. Perhaps, we have asked ourselves, “am I losing my mind?” It is during these troubled, conflicting, painful and often confusing times that we could consider engaging in grief work to express, to retell, to cherish our loved ones with hopes that one day we can feel alive again.

While there is no cure from grief, there is healing. An empathic support on the journey into the darkness and unfamiliarity of grief is essential. My space is one where grief does not have an expiration date and where there are as many ways to grieve as there are grievers.

My clinical work includes psychoeducation, inspirational materials laced with warmth, practicality, and an understanding of human nature and conditions. I have worked extensively with adults/families experiencing losses under a wide variety of circumstances, ranging from long-term illnesses, sudden deaths, and suicides. I would love to be your companion on this journey.
