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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
