Dealing with the loss of a loved one is never easy but it doesn't have to devastate you either. My therapy approach is well suited to minimizing the negative effects of grief and loss while honoring the natural progression of emotions while adjusting to life without this person or this human function. I also provide a variety of resources for you so that you feel supported while you go through the process.

Does the moment of loss replay over and over in your mind, even months or years after the death? Do you find it hard to think about the good times without thinking about your loss? Do you feel like you are stuck and can’t move forward in your life? Are regret and guilt crippling your life? Healing grief and loss is about getting to a place of perfect peace where you can 1) think about your loved one's death without it being an open wound, 2) think about the good times you shared with them and truly enjoy each memory and 3) honor their life and the relationship you shared by developing a network of relationships that can continue to feed and nourish your soul as they once did.

No one likes to lose, especially when it means losing someone they care so much about. A person who comes for grief and loss counseling will begin to make sense out of loss and realize that they can continue on with the loving memory of their lost one. They will be assisted through the grief stages in order to bring acceptance and peace to themselves.

I remember many years ago learning in graduate school about a technique for rapidly helping people to deal with the pain of loss while retaining the memory of their loved one. To this day I remember the specifics of how to help people w/this therapeutic approach. I also utilize individual and family therapy models to help grieving people. Please do not hesitate to contact me for therapy or a referral.

As a psychologist, I can give people the tools to deal with grief and loss, as well as to discuss the topic in ways geared toward working through the loss. Grief and loss are both issues that present themselves during the time of loss, but sometimes unresolved grief leads to changes in a person's life years or even decades later. I especially encourage people dealing with the latter to call me. Working through a distant loss can be extremely powerful. And understanding how it still affects you can feel good, as well as to open doors that were previously closed in life.

I process with the client verbally the loss in regards to family of origin whether it be relatives, close friends, or work relationships. Over a period of sessions, the grief becomes less and less, and the client is able to concentrate on moving forward and letting go, and return to an active lifestyle both emotionally and physically. I provide for a safe environment that leads to healing, support, and empathy.

Have you recently lost a loved one? Whether expected or not, grief over your loss is a natural experience. Still, it can become more consuming than we like, more disruptive than our lives can reasonably tolerate. Perhaps you feel a great deal of guilt, as well as anguish. In the warmth and security of the therapeutic environment, I can help you experience your grief and loss in a healthy, respectful, yet enriching way. In doing so, you can honor the person you have lost, while also re-engaging in the other important aspects of your life. I look forward to being your partner through this challenging time.

In grief and loss feelings of isolation and aloneness along with shock and disbelief can cause us to shut down or deny the pain and emptiness inside. It is normal to have intense feelings or no feelings at all in the early stages of loss. When we cut off or deny our feelings we cut off the recovery process. As a therapist I provide a stable relationship that provides the opportunity to identify, feel, and express the variety of thoughts and feelings each client has. This allows the natural grieving process to progress and relieves the emotional pain caused by loss. Healing occurs when we feel connected to a stable accepting person who supports our unique way of coping with grief.
