Adrian S. Turner, M.A., LMFT
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Adrian is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with extensive training in grief and trauma.  As a family clinician, she has a deep understanding of the need for the family to come together and express/experience the loss as a unit.  When it is not possible for cohesion in the time of bereavement, Adrian works with families to help them heal on their own terms and with an understanding that no one walks alone in the process of loss.  She provides exercises to help connect those left behind give themselves permission to face the sadness, anger and emptiness that can be a result of losing someone you love.
