Grief and Loss
Sometimes we find ourselves feeling stuck in unhelpful patterns in our mind, body, behavior or relationships. Other times we experience significant loss or an unexpected change in life. We can start to feel distant from ourselves, values and passions that get lost along the way. This can leave us feeling anxious, uninspired, disconnected, depressed or stuck. If you made the decision to reach out, you may have tried to make changes or cope on your own, but are struggling to achieve the peace or growth you seek. Therapy offers the comfort of navigating these challenges within the context of a safe and trusting relationship.
Underneath it all, we are balanced, loving, connected and healthy individuals with an inner knowing and power to heal. My passion is to help you reconnect with your wholeness and reach your goals in this process. As the stuck points become clear to you, we work towards releasing what does not serve you or processing what needs to be given attention and time, so you can be more present to yourself, your values and your relationships.
My style has been described as a balance of empathic, straight forward and present. I bring a trauma informed approach with curiosity, space and evidenced based practices including psychoeducation, Acceptance and Commitment therapy, EMDR, Internal Family Systems therapy, parts work and skills building using mindfulness and imagery work. I seek a balance between time to release and process and gently challenging you to consider new perspectives or practices in service of your therapy goals.
If you are interested in individual therapy, please send a message below to arrange a time to talk. I provide a free 20 minute consultation to talk about your needs and give you a chance to ask questions you may have. It is important that you feel heard and understood for therapy to be helpful. From there we can schedule an Initial Assessment. If I am not the right person for you, I am happy to provide information to support your search for the best fit.
Initial Assessment: $170
50 minute sessions: $150
