I approach individuals coping with grief and loss with patience, compassion and expertise. Grief and loss can be felt when someone important dies, a pet dies, a marriage or relationship ends, a job ends or even when there is a significant life transition. Everyone grieves in their own time and I will support and guide your process. You will find that your sad feelings will lift and you will feel lighter and more at peace after our healing work process takes place together.

Grief and loss can be about death of a loved one. Grieving offers us a challenge and an opportunity. It is a process of letting go of who and what was lost as we integrate that person and our memories into our present lives. Grief can also be about letting go and changing patterns that no longer serve us. Therapy offers a place to learn new and more healthy strategies to care for ourselves and engage in relationships.

I have worked for over 25 years with clients who are trying to cope with such issues as chronic illness, loss and bereavement of loved ones, aging and geriatric issues, and even losing a pet. There truly are more effective ways to manage the enormous range of feelings that arise in response to these painful events and I work very hard to help my clients master and endure during such challenges.

A loss is guaranteed in each person's life, hence, every individual will succumb to grief at some point of their life. Each individual grieve in their own way. Based on my clinical and personal experience, the depth of the grieving often center around the emotional attachment to the item or individual lost. Grief should not be timed, however, each year the pain of the loss lessons but never completely dissipate. At Victoria Counseling, you will receive grief therapy that is individualized to you taking into account your values and belief system.

The overwhelming sadness of loss comes in all shapes and sizes, whether you've ended a job or a relationship, left your childhood home or graduated college, experienced the death of family members or a yearned for opportunity. My treatment approach to grief helps clients process the shock, come to terms with the pain, work through residual anger or anxiety, accept the new reality and adjust to a new status, and transform loneliness or regret. If you have experienced an unanticipated traumatic loss of a loved one, and it's bringing up emotions and memories that are difficult to be with, I can provide the therapeutic process that can help you find the peace you seek inside yourself.
