Grief is the emotional response to loss. The loss can be a spouse, family member, or close friend, or it can be a lost job or a missed opportunity. Grief is a natural emotional response that has various predictable stages. While it is painful and upsetting it is the psyche’s way of moving through it and can result in personal growth and even transformation. My approach is to work with you in a confidential setting by talking about it and exploring together the meaning of the grief reaction and the various specific facets of your loss. I will help you get in touch with your own God given inner resources to cope with the loss and to move forward, and to adjust and adapt.

Life invariably involves grief and loss. Over the years I've met some wonderful elderly folks who in their marriages were so close and shared so much. Some were the folks who "did everything together" for decades. Now one of them dies and the surviving spouse simply cannot imagine going on without the other. Should we have advised them years ago, "Don't be close; it'll just hurt more later." Of course not! But love and loss are inextricably bound. It is a special privilege, as a psychologist and counselor, to be able to join with clients at these hardest times in their lives ... Times when we are most hurt and vulnerable, but most human, most genuine, and facing what really matters ..

Grief & loss are experienced across a wide continuum. Some amount of loss happens each day--lost opportunities at work or to connect with family or friends for example. A few losses cause years of struggle--infertility, divorce, & illness might fall here. Other losses are rare yet so profound we are forever changed by the experience--the death of a child or unexpected loss of a beloved spouse are extraordinarily difficult. Letting my clients know they are not alone is critical. There are no expectations to feel a certain way, behave a certain way, or progress through any specific phases of grief. In this super fast paced world, I encourage my clients to slow down & trust their process.
