Filled with powerful, authentic poems expressing loss, Our Last Walk, helps the grieving person find words for their loss while sharing in the experience of others who have traversed that same painful journey. More than a book of tears, Our Last Walk, also helps people to remember their beloved pet, preserving the love and memories of relationship. Through this book, many will find encouragement, healing, and hope.

My philosophy is simple; your goal is my goal. I work from a relational perspective that is similar to a trusted friend; we will laugh together, cry with each other, and maybe even be angry with each other. It is my belief that the interaction in the room will mirror how you address your relationships outside of therapy. Therefore, it is vital to engage in an authentic manner and not one that reflects a power differential. I have a passion for working with end-of-life issues, grief and bereavement (loss comes in many forms beyond death), and for those that are trying to create a new sense of self. My experiences vary across many areas: working with hospice patients and their families, individuals with Parkinson's Disease and their families, court-mandated families, individuals with traumatic brain injuries, incarcerated individuals, couples, and many people that have just had enough of feeling inadequate and want more from their lives.
