Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness
– Desmond Tutu
This is an area I’m extremely passionate about. I worked as the Clinical Supervisor of a children’s mobile crisis team that operated 24/7 for almost 5 years. During this time I saw so many young people, and their parents, suffer from suicidal thoughts or having made suicide attempts. On the other end, I have also worked with people who are grieving the loss of a loved one who died from suicide.
Unfortunately, there are not enough people who do specialize in this area. This is where I can help you. Not only have I worked extensively with clients like you, I am on the board of the American Association of Suicidology as the Chair of the Youth Suicide Prevention Committee. I’m also very involved in the Communications committee and work with the media in learning how to publish this kind of news in a sensitive and appropriate way.
Getting started and making that first call is the hardest. I always take things at the speed that you are ready to go at. Being a compassionate, calm, and empathic therapist, I really try to go into the trenches with you and your pain. We will do this together.
