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 know personally how devastating grief is. When we lose someone or a relationship we love, it feels as if we will not be able to ever recover. Sometimes we get stuck. With a directed grief approach, you can learn how to manage your loss and move through the process. By discussing your feelings and understanding about grief, we will release the pain more quickly and retain what was beautiful, helping you move towards acceptance.

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.
