I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor (LPC-S) who is committed to helping children, adolescents and adults to grow through their trauma, navigate their grief/loss and learn to manage the challenges of anxiety and depression.

Welcome! This is The Legacy for Children & Families, LLC & we are glad that you have stopped by on today. With over 20 years in the mental health field, fifteen spent as a therapist, I am dedicated to helping persons who have experienced the trauma of losing someone that they loved, are finding it difficult to manage normal functionings [bathing, eating, sleeping, etc.], interactions and/or symptoms [depression, anxiety, confusion, guilt and so forth] associated with it and/or actively seeking strategies for navigating the changes that follow grief. Grief is a natural, emotional response to any loss. When we talk about grief in terms of the loss of a loved one, it is known as bereavement. Bereavement can present in a plethora of emotional responses such as sadness, guilt, anxiety, depression and a number of powerful feelings. The physical toll can be equally frustrating, demonstrated as fatigue, insomnia, forgetfulness and lack of focus/concentration [to name a few].

The thought of never seeing them or hearing their voice/laugh again, I know, is difficult to wrap your mind around. You may also feel hurt, sad and disappointed by their passing. You are not alone. It’s important to note that grieving is a unique experience to each person, with some people coping by talking openly and honestly about the life of the person they lost. Others may cope by engaging themselves in behaviors and activities to distract away from their loss. Either way, the most essential question is, “Is it [what you are doing] working?” If what you are doing has not been effective, this may be an indication that it’s time to choose more specialized help with a professional counselor.

By choosing to work with a trained counselor, you may learn that dealing with the trauma of your loss may be preventing you from starting the grieving process or moving through it. It can also help you to cope with feelings of guilt that you may hold about your loved one who has died. While in treatment, you will be provided the space and necessary conditions (stillness, grace, etc.) to help you feel safe in exploring your experience. These conditions will serve in establishing the trust [confidentiality] and foundation you will utilize to learn strategies for letting go of guilt or shame & helping you to see how you are continuously connected [emotionally] to your loved one [along with other outcomes]. Consequently, coming to therapy is a proven intervention where improved emotional and behavioral management have been shown. If you believe that it is time to seek professional involvement for your grief, then reach out to us…You don’t have to do it alone…
