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.

Love comes with a terrible cost. When our loved ones pass, we are left with the void in our hearts and souls where our loved one occupied. We are the same, but life will never be the same. When the funeral is over, and the well-wishers are gone, we are left with the familiar place without the ones that should be with us. At Grace Wellness Center we help you navigate the grieving process and find healing both emotionally and spiritually. We help you examine the questions that seem to have no answers and deal with the feelings that seem to have no end. Let us help you find healing and peace.

No matter how much you may want to, you cannot return to your "pre-loss" state--the person you were before the loss. My work with you will center on helping you to adapt to life after the loss. It is important for you to realize that everyone grieves differently, so don't you compare your grief journey to someone else's, and don't let others do it to you. Come in and let's have a talk and we'll see what we can do to make life better for you, and we will laugh while we do it!

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.

Loss occurs in everyone, sometimes it is expected, sometimes not. It can be helpful to have someone to help put things in perspective and to find a "New" normal functioning. Grief and Cognitive -Behavioral therapies, with the guidance of a therapist, can help individuals make adjustments in living and thinking about the loss, and move on with life using healthy coping skills.
