I am currently working with chronically ill, geriatric, rehab and long-term residents of Skilled Nursing Centers. In this capacity I travel to various facilities where I conduct individual weekly therapy; video sessions are also available when required. I see adults with various chronic and acute medical issues and also specialize in grief, loss, PTSD, trauma; and life transitions. I enjoy tapping in to the individuals spiritual practices and belief to enhance their growth, insight and forward movement in therapy. I also work with folks dealing with relationship issues, work and care stress, mood disorders, learning differences and recovery.
In every session I strive to create a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere where compassion, empathy and acceptance allow clients to discuss feelings, memories, thoughts and ideas working toward their treatment goals at a pace designed for their individual needs. I encourage humor, art therapy, "homework assignments" and journaling when appropriate and efficacious.
My areas of interest and specialty include relationship challenges; life and career transitions; Post Traumatic Stress and mood disorders; grief and bereavement; spiritual wholeness; recovery from sex trafficking, sexual abuse and domestic violence; Learning Differences and ADHD coaching. I also have many years professional experience and knowledge of medical conditions, and welcome clients dealing with chronic pain and medical issues, new diagnoses, and acute or longstanding physical injuries or challenges.
