Loss is the inevitable that takes us by surprise. The surprise is that it actually happened and then the mysterious journey can be very confusing. Ranging from feeling like you are on a roller coaster to feeling mired in depths of sadness. This journey is made all the more complex if the relationship was unresolved or conflicted. Loss is inevitable and everyone faces it. There is no one path. Many people will believe their is one path and then expect you to be on it or over it. Your path is your path. It is unique and it might have unique stumbling blocks. Your not alone.

Losing a loved one, a person, a pet is like losing a part of ones self. Coping with loss is not a simple, cookbook process. No one can tell you how to manage and while some people talk about "stages of grief" it will never be that simple. Some people can find solace in their religious faith, their faith's scriptures, their faith's rituals, their faith communities. For others these resources sound and feel hollow. They need a person or people to walk with them and talk with them on the journey after death, separation or loss. I am willing to work with you throughout that process.
