Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
The journey of grief and loss is hard. Traveling it alone is harder. I will walk with you on your path providing supportive, compassionate therapy until you’re on your feet again. Whether you’ve lost a spouse or family member, a pet, your house, your job, or are in the process of losing someone or something, I can help you make it through this confusing and difficult time in your life. Feeling depressed? Anxious? Exhausted? Stressed? All are typical responses to grief and loss, but the good news is that they are all very treatable as well.<p>Even if you are not in the process of grief, I can help you with these challenges as well:<br> • Depression<br> • Anxiety<br> • Trauma<br> • Stress<br> • Compassion Fatigue<br> • Issues Related to Caregiving<br> • Gay and Lesbian Issues<br><p> Through gentle, minfulness-based therapy, stress reduction practices, and heart-centered listening, you will start to feel better and more able to cope with the changes in your life. I know it may seem hopeless now, but with someone walking with you, there really is a light at the end of the tunnel.
