Like many of you, I have experienced times when navigating life’s losses and life transitions have necessitated a period of reflection, reevaluation, and reinvention. Changing careers, being diagnosed with cancer, going through divorce, caring for a loved one who is dying, as well as the many losses and changes associated with midlife and becoming an empty nester. Experiencing these things sparked a curiosity and desire to learn more about what people need in transitional times, and how best to support those needs.
My personal journey has been down a path of exploration in which I have done a deep dive into learning everything I could about loss, change, grief, resilience, and rediscovery. I began working with hospice patients and their families and was inspired to return to school and earn a bachelor’s degree in applied psychology and then a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling so that I could help others navigate all of life’s transitional times utilizing the benefit of what I have learned.
I individualize counselling based on your unique needs by pulling from a robust toolbox of effective evidence-based interventions such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Distress Tolerance and Resilience Training. It is your path to chart, I will be your experienced traveling companion, helping you navigate your way into discovering what comes next.
