Social Worker, Licensed Clinical (LCSW)

Prior to starting my solo practice I worked for 16 years in hospice care throughout the Bay Area.� I bring to my work a deep caring for those in grief and those facing serious illness and well as the loved ones providing care.� If you are an adult child caring for elder parents or you are a parent of a child with a difficult illness, you are facing unique challenges in caring for others while attemting to maintain some equillibrium for yourself.� Facing serious illness, pain and the "unknown" challenges us to the core.��Dealing with illness and loss means "calling in the troops" of support.� I draw from traditional "talk" therapy, expressive arts, mindfulness and resilience practices, social/community supports among other "tools".� Together, we�find a way through that�is personal,�transformative and safe.�
