About Me

I provide a safe and nurturing environment where we can explore feelings and the impact they have on our lives.  I have a warm, nonjudgmental, informal and interactive style. I honor your values and beliefs (including those within a spiritual framework) as we explore how they may pertain to behavior which is helpful or harmful. I often use humor as a means to maintain safety and balance in our work together.

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. I have a masters degree in marriage and family therapy, with an emphasis in gerontology.  I have extensive experience in working with all aspects of grief and loss, and I am certified through the Association for Death Education and Counseling and the American Academy of Bereavement.  I have worked throughout my career with older adults in individual and group settings as well as community workshops.

I also have extensive experience in trauma recovery with victims of domestic violence and other violent crimes, and with adult survivors of childhood trauma and abuse.  I have worked extensively with perpetrators of domestic violence and abuse, and I have worked with parents to heal the effects of trauma and abuse on their children.  I am certified through the International Association of Trauma Professionals, and a graduate of the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner training.

My previous career was in human resources, and I have a Master of Science degree in Business Administration.  I have worked with staff and senior executives in the corporate environment, the public sector, and nonprofit agencies.
