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.

Grief and loss are part of Life, as we all know. Whether loss from a traumatic event, of a significant other or family member, or from childhood losses of vital care-taking and attachment, how we integrate loss into our everyday reality and sense of self, can be life-changing. The supports needed, the healing process, and the particular meaning and direction chosen to shape our lives - these are all topics for therapy after loss. significant loss

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.

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.
