Additional training in psychotherapy at
Postgraduate Center for Mental Health
Specialist in grief, loss, and life transitions
More than 30 years in clinical practice
From an early age, I developed an interest in listening to people and hearing their stories. I followed up this interest by pursuing an undergraduate degree in psychology, and a master’s degree in social work.
For many years, I worked in mental health agencies where I provided counseling to children and families. In recent years, my practice has focused more on adults.
Having encountered many clients who suffered painful losses, experienced profound grief, and confronted various crises in their lives, I decided to focus on these issues of grief, loss, and life transitions.
One such life transition is job related relocation. I had the opportunity to live and work abroad for several years. In addition to learning about different cultures, I was able to gain a perspective on the impact of a relocation on all family members. At times, I have found it can be particularly stressful for spouses and children.
As a skilled, experienced therapist, I can help you understand yourself in ways your friends cannot, however well motivated they may be.
My style is warm, compassionate, and interactive. My approach is client-centered, helping clients discover their strengths while working towards reaching their goals.
Clients come to me for help in developing coping skills and new ways of looking at problems. I use an eclectic approach, tailored to the needs of the individual, couple, or family. Together, we develop strategies and implement an action plan.
