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.
