She utilizes an eclectic approach with emphasis on the whole person.  Since everyone’s grief journey is unique, focus is turned to the individual needs of each client or family.  Common themes addressed during sessions include emotional or cognitive based processing, grieving styles, sharing the narrative, relaxation or stress management, meaning making and continuing bonds. For younger clients, the use of play, art and movement is utilized in sessions.
