You don't have to do it all alone.
You may be curious about what makes me uniquely qualified to help you during a time of loss, grief, and transformation. I know grief and loss because I have walked the path myself. I have lost loved ones who can never be replaced. I have been at the very bottom of despair, and managed to steer myself onto the path of healing that was right for me.
I live with my losses everyday. They informs my understanding of love, of connection, and of life itself. As a therapist, it makes me passionate to continue broadening my understanding of how grief, loss, and life transitions impact us all; and the complexities around how to find the strength to carry on with our lives when they have been forever changed.
