Areas of Expertise

TRAUMA, Grief, & Bereavement

Traumatic stress, grief, and attachment injuries are stored in the body and can affect a person long after an event has occurred. Let's regain a sense of self as we explore the impact traumatic stress, grief, and loss have on your present moment.


*Specialized experience in working with COVID-19 

Front-line Healthcare Providers and survivors, in addition to individuals and families struggling with COVID-19 adjustment and recovery.


Emotions can feel overwhelming at times. Let's gain the necessary tools to help you welcome difficult emotions as you learn to observe feelings in a healthy way.


Let's process an initial diagnosis, obtain  knowledge, gain coping skills, establish goals of care, and initiate end of life discussions together. 

Allow me to help guide you and your family through this journey.


*Specialized knowledge in neurodegenerative disease, available treatments, latest research, adjustment to illness, caregiver grief, and end of life planning.

Cancer Specialist

Receiving a cancer diagnosis can trigger a deluge of varying emotions laced in loss and anticipatory anxiety. Let's anchor in the present moment to help us cope with the uncertainty of the future.



*Specialized knowledge in a variety of cancers, chemotherapy,

radiation, immunotherapy,

stem cell transplantation, and Car-T Cell therapy.


Speed bumps we encounter can sometimes exhaust us to the point of analysis paralysis or emotional upheaval. Let's find solutions while addressing our needs and acknowledging the needs of others.
