Profile
“Grief has introduced me to a unique perspective in which to connect client functioning within diagnoses and introduce grace and compassion into the therapeutic dynamic.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My therapeutic path began as a response to my own history of loss. Creating space for grief and loss within my own life led to my studies and professional development as a grief support practitioner. Grief has introduced me to a unique perspective in which to connect client functioning within diagnoses and introduce grace and compassion into the therapeutic dynamic. Grief and loss have created multiple avenues for connecting with clients and communities inclusively. I have led workshops and consultations nationally and internationally on bereavement, I hold a certification in art and community practice, and I am certified in thanatology (the study of death, dying, and bereavement).
What should someone know about working with you?
I consider myself a motivator and partner in the therapeutic relationship. I use creativity and contextually-based, grief-informed approaches to clarify narrative building and treatment-planning while facilitating self-reflective space within our session and in between sessions. I find that I am most effective with clients who are motivated, open, and seeking transparency around their relational life path barriers. Sessions offer facilitated exploration, the naming of patterns as a tool for identifying gaps in skills, and empowerment around goals and functioning within relationships, life, and change.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
My core values shape every part of my therapeutic leanings. I believe in intentional, inclusive, and resonant connections, the beauty and healing in stories, and an awareness that function exists even when we cannot see it clearly. The path to this clarity is the unique journey that we are all on. Loss is a big part of the story and a path to ourselves. I like the idea of each of us walking each other home.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
Teletherapy and telehealth rejuvenated my personal and professional practice. I am invigorated thinking about the ways that connection can be authentic and resonant in this medium. I have worked hard to create digital awareness, creatively form bonds, and sustain therapeutic alliances across the divide.
