Are you dealing with grief from the loss of a loved one, a relationship, or a job? Are you and your partner facing difficulties? Are you trying to understand the story of your life? Or maybe you are a new counselor seeking affordable supervision?

If so, I invite you to call or e-mail me to see if we could work together. I am an existentially-oriented counselor/psychotherapist who can help you explore issues of grief and loss and meaning in your life. When working with couples in crisis, in addition to trying to improve communication, I promote change by helping them focus on the emotional aspects of their relationships. 

My own life has made me realize the importance of learning about and working with the losses in our lives. This often means the loss of a loved one, but can include other sources of grief such as the loss of a relationship, a job, or one’s health.

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in Maryland, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the District of Columbia, and a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in New Mexico. I received my Masters of Art in Counseling and my Ph.D. in Counselor Education from the University of New Mexico. For more about me, see the About Me page.
