"It is my goal to create a “safe place” for people to embrace their feelings of profound loss. It is my privilege to listen to children, teens, adults and families as they teach me the impact loss has had on their lives.
To provide myself with work/life balance I enjoy time outdoors, family, and going for long walks with my dog."
