Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Grieving after a significant loss is HARD WORK! We grieve not only the deaths of those we love, (including pets,) but losses of significant relationships, jobs, or any sense of "normalcy".
Chronic & Terminal Illness
Facing mortality is confronting and often overwhelming. Yet it is possible to live well and find a sense of peace in this life.
Caring for someone else can feel exhausting. Having the opportunity to share your fears and worries, as well as your joys can be rejuvenating so you can continue in this role.
Change is never easy! Sometimes we all need a little extra support.
I have witnessed countless times over the years that we, as human beings, have everything we need already inside of us. Sometimes it just gets buried under all of the expectations put onto us by ourselves and others. My role is essentially to hold up the mirror and facilitate the process of discovery. I utilize tools from many different counseling modalities to find what resonates with YOU.
Available in-person or via Zoom.
Fee for a 60-minute visit $125.
I am unable to bill insurance at this time but happy to provide a billing statement if you want to file for reimbursement. I am also contracted with Open Path Collective to provide services at a significantly reduced rate for those who meet guidelines. https://openpathcollective.org/
I received my Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Washington in 2002 and have been working primarily in the fields of geriatrics and hospice care since then. I have been traveling to Rwanda since 2014 and lived there between 2018-2020 doing grief and trauma work with genocide survivors.
