Providing specialized counseling for families struggling with life threatening illness and/or grief.
- Soul to Soul - a unique support service for those living with serious illnesses such as cancer. In the same way a midwife journeys with the family as they anticipate an upcoming birth, I will accompany yours as you anticipate an upcoming or eventual death. Counseling services are provided in both my office and the comfort of your home.
Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak whispers the o'er-fraught heart and bids it break.
Providing specialized counseling for women.
Using narrative therapy techniques, I specialize in working with women who are ready to re-write their life story by healing past attachment experiences that are impacting their current relationships and roles.
Narrative therapy is interested in the stories we live by - those stories we carry with us about who we are and what is most important to us. Narrative therapy involves unearthing those stories, understanding them, and re-telling them.

What is Attachment Theory?
Attachment is an emotional bond to another person. Attachment theory is focused on the relationships and bonds between people, particularly long-term relationships including those between a parent and child and between romantic partners. Psychologist John Bowlby, the first attachment theorist, believed that the earliest bonds formed by children with their caregivers have a tremendous impact that continues throughout life.
