Grief and loss are an inevitable part of the human experience. Shock, anger, guilt and sadness are emotions that typically accompany loss events. These and other feelings are normal responses, but what happens when your grief response begins to impair your ability to function? Insomnia, anxiety, preoccupation with the loss event, thoughts of dying and/or loss of meaning can sometimes diminish your ability to cope, and you need help. I’m here to tell you that it is okay to get help.  

Additionally, grief and loss aren’t only reserved for death and dying. Any loss can be grieved.

Chronic illness. A loved one’s addiction. Break-up/divorce. Retirement, job loss. Infertility. Absent, unavailable parents. All of these experiences can take something from us. Confronting loss is hard and can shake even the strongest person to the core – threatening your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being. If you can relate, I invite you to explore therapy. 

I want to help individuals and families experience healthy grief. I will meet you where you are and provide a judgment-free place where you can explore and process the fullness of what your loss means for you. I can help you understand the role that psychosocial development and environment play in your experience.  We will work together to identify coping skills that are as unique as you are. I will support you as you navigate this transition, learn how to find meaning and live fully in spite of your loss. 

About Me

My loss experiences are what led me to pursue a Masters in Social Work from The University of Georgia. There I focused on the role that faith plays in domestic violence interventions and grief and loss. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker I have experience working with grieving children, domestic violence survivors and accountability courts. For the past 6 years I have worked in the medical field helping individuals and families navigate the impact of chronic illness on themselves as well as the family system. This work has allowed me to help people work through depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, burnout and crisis. I also have an interest in working with children affected by domestic violence homicides and their new families. To this end I am committed to ongoing education, training and certification in the areas of trauma, grief, domestic violence and attachment. I am also able to incorporate faith into the therapeutic process if requested.
