Most individuals experience loss and grief at some point in their life. Losses that often lead to grief include loss of a loved one, job, divorce, retirement or loss of a beloved pet. I’ve completed Loss and Grief Training and can offer extra insight and compassion to those struggling to cope with loss or grief. I can assist individuals and families in gaining a better understanding of grief and will help them to learn and identify the stages of grief and to fully express feelings and emotions. Individuals will be aware of healthy coping strategies and those that delay the grieving process. Individuals will learn that dealing with sorrow takes time, but with time and perseverance, they can properly morn their loss and heal.

Grief & Loss are a part of life. No one escapes them, yet our experiences with grief and loss are each unique and painful. As a therapist I first encourage suffering clients to be patient with themselves and provide them with skills to work with well-meaning--but not always helpful--family and friends. There is no one right method of grieving. I work with each client to help them identify what their needs are: perhaps it is someone to listen to them share memories of the person who is gone, or it may be just being there as they mourn silently. What is important is that you accept your feelings nonjudgmentally.
