"Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity." -Pema Chodron. From this place of compassion, I embrace a collaborative approach in therapy to help you address current life challenges, explore lifelong patterns, and/or develop areas for personal growth. I see adolescents and adults.
Grief and loss is my speciality. You may have experienced the death of a loved one or suffered a loss related to a significant life event. Therapy can help you make meaning of the loss and process who you are now and how you can move forward in your life.
I am not on any insurance panels, but you may be able to get reimbursed for me as an out-of-network provider. Keep in mind that insurance companies require a mental health diagnosis for coverage. We can discuss the pros and cons of this.
