About Me

Have you lost a significant person or pet in your life due to death? Do you struggle with continued sadness that keeps you from moving forward in life? If you struggle with modest, residual grief or more traumatic and complicated grief, grief resolution can bring your emotions back into balance so that you can feel a sense of peace and positive emotion when you think about your missing loved one. In addition, I have extensive experience in assisting clients to improve stress and burnout or coping with chronic health issues. I can help you get back to living again. Many of my clients have reported they can breathe again, feel a burden lifted, or feel like themselves after just a few sessions with me. I work to improve the place you are stuck, your emotional regulation, mis-beliefs that hold you back, and relationship patterns. You feel better and get tools for continued healing. Call or text to schedule a no-cost initial consultation to see if you can benefit from rapid grief resolution or stress/burnout improvement.
