Grief can be all-consuming, a heavy gray cloud that envelops us and leaves us feeling disoriented and alone. We lose sight of the precious things around us, and instead find ourselves stung by grief's bitter winds and blinded by its dark fog. It is in those times that we need a helping hand to reach out to us through the gray, and walk alongside us when we don't know where our next step will land. Counseling is that walking alongside. Through therapy together, we learn how to be with both grief and life in tandem. We learn how to hold our sadness tenderly and with loving kindness, while also holding the joys and gifts of the present moment.

Working with a compassionate, kind and attuned therapist during times of grief and lost can make a significant difference. Focus can be on validating feelings, connecting with the happier memories (and reducing the traumatic memories) and acquiring coping skills. Overwhelming grief and loss is understandable and going through the grieving process with a professional who cares can be an important step.

Most clients have been hurt in past relationships. Sometimes that hurt is when someone dies or sometimes it is because the relationship ends, like divorce. My form of grief and loss counseling invites a close relationship. This closeness triggers feelings, anxiety, and defenses in the client. I will help the patient take a look at their loss as well as these defenses. I will help them face what they are avoiding.
