Everyone experiences grief differently. And everyone expresses grief differently. My first priority is to understand the very personal meaning of each loss that is shared with me. I strive to provide an environment that feels safe for sharing the feelings of a deep personal loss. Affirming the validity of someone's emotional pain can lead to profound healing.

We all experience loss in our lives and grieve those losses in various ways. From lost jobs or relationships to the overwhelming emptiness at the death of a child or other beloved family member. It can be tough. There is no time limit to grief. Give yourself permission to grieve fully and allow those feelings the time and compassion they deserve. However, if depression deepens and your grief becomes so debilitating that it keeps you from being with those you love or prevents you doing what you love, talk to someone who will help you get back on your feet. Find some peace of mind while still keeping alive those precious memories you wish to keep. You are not alone. Call for help.

I utilize IPT techniques to help client's express and validate their reactions to loss (whether it be the loss of a loved one or pet, or the loss of a job or relationship). My goal is to help clients grieve in a way that is healthy for them and to focus on their future and the benefits of their new roles. This technique is beneficial for anyone in transition or struggling with loss or change.

Losing a loved one can be detrimental and life altering and there is no designated time by which you should be "over it". Learning to live with your grief can take time and my role in this journey of yours would be to "walk" with you as you walk into a new reality for you. Grief can be hard to recognize and acknowledge. Losing a job, a promotion, a pet, a relationship or a dream might leave you feeling angry, sad and hopeless. I am here to offer a safe place to discuss all these feeling and help you make peace and create a new dream.

I have worked with grief and loss in both individual and group settings. Each person's grieving is completely unique, and each loss we experience will be felt differently even between our own experiences. Whether you need to focus on telling the story of your loss, want to be able to learn new skills and self care, or are interested in working on your next steps forward, we can explore and process your loss and your own needs.

Experiencing grief and loss is difficult and often heartbreaking. We can experience grief when we lose a loved one, pet, or significant other. We can even experience grief and loss when we lose a job or hobby that we love. Without support, grief and loss can leave you feeling hopeless. We are often pressured to "hurry up and get over it" in our busy society, and I am here to tell you that the grieving process has no time line and is individual to each person and loss. Allow me to help you through this hard time with empathy and experience.

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.

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.

I am committed to helping you fully express yourself and to helping you find your way out of grief. I tend to be more interactive than many counselors and strive to be clear and direct, down-to-earth and practical. I use a number of techniques, selecting from each as it seems appropriate. However, I have found that techniques are not as important as the working alliance that the counselor and the client build together. I strive to create a private, non-judgmental environment that feels like a natural, normal conversation, but turns out to be like no other conversation you've ever had.

There are at least 40 different kinds of loss that people can experience during their lives; the grief reaction to loss is normal and natural. Often, the loss people experience is isolated and intellectualized. But people do not have broken heads, they have broken hearts. I am a certified grief recovery specialist through the internationally established Grief Recovery Institute. In addressing loss issues, I offer emotional safety and validation as well as providing a structured process for healing. No one "gets over" an emotional loss. Instead, through the grief recovery process, one can learn how to survive a loss and potentially thrive.
