As a family therapist, I believe that healthy families are at the core of our society. I also understand that healthy families look different from family to family and that sometimes, transitions can unbalance the family system. Transitions can come from all sorts of events such as a new baby, divorce, moving to another town, blending two families, changes in family structure due to death or other loss, financial changes, remarriage, multi-generational living and becoming an empty nester.
Whatever the transition your family is experiencing, we will work together, with your family, to bring the language of your family and strengths forward as you navigate the transition to find your way back to a sense of family balance.
I look forward to helping you navigate the challenges and rediscover the gifts you cherish in your family.
Be a woman in our every evolving society can sometimes leave us feeling exhausted, misunderstood, frightened and tentative of the changes that are ahead in our developmental life span.
In a comfortable, trusting and genuine space, we will work together to identify those tricky feelings that often go unnoticed as we give so much of ourselves to other people.
I look forward to helping you understand and navigate the challenges that are unique to women everywhere.
Pregnancy loss is one area of loss that few people talk about in our complex society, but an area that I find to carry so much pain for many women and men. Have you lost a child to miscarriage and find that people want to minimize your loss through well intended but insensitive attempts to console you? Did you make the choice recently, or even decades ago, to have an abortion and find that you are sitting with silent grief because you feel you made the decision so you must live with it alone and suffer in silence? Possibly you gave a baby up for adoption and still can’t find your way out of the wilderness of grief.
It doesn’t matter if the loss was recent or decades ago, if the loss is causing you distress, it demands your attention. In a supportive and caring atmosphere, we will work together to navigate the grief or other myriad of feelings that you may be experiencing.
You do not have to minimize a pregnancy loss or be silent any longer.
