When we loose a loved one the world can be a dark place, and the outside world with good intentions tries to help us 'to let go' or 'to move on' much faster than we can and than we want to. I believe that grieving is not so much about letting go as it is about 'holding on'. Grieving is about having time to anchor that loved one in our hearts so deep until we can trust mto never loose that loving connection. The more we trust that connection to be there forever, the more we can indeed move on and allow ourselves to have a life again including joy and laughter without feeling like we leave somebody behind. Grief Therapy is about remembering, honoring, and telling stories of connection.

Grief and loss is unavoidable reality for most people at some point during their lives and by gaining a better understanding of the stages of grief and how to cope, true healing can begin. Grief and loss happen not only when a loved one dies but often take place during times of transition and change, ( like getting a divorce, moving to a new area or losing a job). Together we can find a way to make life have meaning and purpose again.

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.

There are many types of losses that can have a major impact on our functioning and lead to feelings of grief. Deaths, separation and divorce, loss of a job, health issues, a child moving away, are examples of normal life situations that can be very painful to deal with. In my work, I compassionately try to help you understand the meaning of the "loss", and support you in healing and moving forward.

Grief and loss are a natural - though painful - part of life. It's normal to be sad and to grieve. Unfortunately, our fast paced society often wants us to medicate and move on more quickly than might really be healthy or good for us. I encourage people to have patience with themselves and the process of grief, and to allow themselves to fully feel their feelings so that they can truly heal. Paradoxically, allowing full expression of the sadness, anger, and other emotions often does allow a person to move forward more quickly. I also always assess carefully to make sure that "normal" sadness has not spiraled into a true clinical depression, and I encourage prompt treatment if it does.

Experiencing a difficult loss is disorienting and can feel paralyzing. It can also bring up pain from the past that you thought was long gone, or cause you to question your view of the world. This is difficult but normal. It is important to talk about your grief with someone who really understands. I offer a safe place to work through your grief in your own way, without rushing, without having to put on a pretend smile or a brave face. I cannot undo your loss, but therapy can help you begin to find meaning in it, to make sense of the world again, and to find practical ways to cope.

Grief is our response to loss. Grief, fully experienced, allows us to go on with life. Each person's response is unique. You may be grieving the death of a loved one; you may be dealing with a serious illness; you may be mourning the loss of a relationship; you may be dealing with the loss of a job. Wherever you are in the grief process, I offer a safe, empathetic relationship to guide you through the stages of anger, sadness, justifying, letting go. We will work together to facilitate healing.

Grief is the normal reaction to loss, but our society often reacts to grief like it is an illness, and the griever does not get social acceptance and support, so that help and guidance in finding ones way through this difficult, sometimes lonely, passage way is helpful. Sometimes, however, grief is complicated and gets stuck and grief counselling or grief therapy is then especially needed allow you to mourn and restore yourself. I am a Fellow in Thanatology, the highest level certification for treating mourning and death. I am the author & editor of 4 books and many articles on grief & trauma. I have trained many other therapists. I can help you find your way through painful grief.

Whether you are grieving due to the death of a loved one, ending of a significant relationship or the loss of the life you expected, it is a process. We all grieve for different reasons & in different ways, but it is important to allow yourself to grieve so that you can move forward. I'll work with you to understand the grief process including the stages of grief. An important part of the process is helping you identify & express the variety of feelings & thoughts you are likely experiencing. Often, human instinct is to avoid or numb what is painful. Unfortunately, this can prevent healing, extend the pain & create other problems. Instead, I'd like to help you find your way through the pain.

When one person in a family experiences grief or loss, everyone is affected. Sometimes an entire family struggles to adjust to a death or a cross-country move or to a divorce. In any of these cases, a person's need for comfort can conflict with their emotions, causing confusion and conflict among people who are trying to support one another. In addition, children and teenagers can react to loss very differently than do adults, so the signs of pain or distress are not obvious. If there has been a loss for someone in your family or there is an impending loss (planned separation due to marital conflict, children leaving for college), I would welcome the opportunity to help.

Grief and loss are inevitable in life, and can be our times of greatest pain, and also sometimes, greatest growth. Most people think first about the death of a loved one when they think about grief, but it also be the loss of a home, a friend, a marriage, a job, and so on. These events can sometimes also lead to profound grief. Often friends don't understand or know what to say. Sometimes, they even seem to disappear, when you're needing them most. You're not alone if you've experienced some of these phenomena. I'd like to help you through this painful time.
