My approach to grief and loss is not based on any typical models of stages of grief but on each client's unique experience of these issues. I'll support you as you work through the various thoughts, feelings, and moods you continue to encounter related to your loss. No loss or life change is considered either too inconsequential or too major to address in the therapy setting.

All individuals, if they live enough years, experience the death of a significant other. However, not all bereavement occurs due to a loss from death, yet the emotional pain can be as severe if not worse. Separation, divorce, ambiguous loss, chronic or terminal illness, or loss of status (e.g., financial or social) also involve a grieving process for individuals, couples or families. Many times, the repercussions of a loss are manifested in other presenting problems, such as school or behavioral problems in children and relational discord in couples. Working this through in a safe therapeutic environment will help you develop a new identity, and reestablish balance in you relationships.
