Grief is a natural response to any loss, whether is be the death of a loved one, a miscarriage, divorce, loss of a job, loss of a pet or any other loss. Therapy can help you understand the natural process of grief and that while there are patterns to the grief process, your progress through your own grief is unique. You can learn coping strategies to help you move through the emotional pain of loss. We all search to find meaning in painful and traumatic events. Therapy provides a safe place for you to honor your grief while you explore the emotional turmoil surrounding loss.

We grieve the loss of family and friends, pets, and parts of our lives that we believe were lost through trauma, divorce, job loss, and the like. I work with each client to identify what the loss means, how it fits it into their life narrative, and how to adapt coping behaviors that reestablish meaning and a sense of wholeness. There is a critical difference between missing what is lost, and becoming emotionally entwined in a negative way with the object of loss. My approach is to emphasize being able to integrate the loss into ongoing life, and not becoming entwined in it.
