Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be thereā€”to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

As much as any of us might wish grief and loss weren't a part of life, if we can integrate them into who you become, we really do grow to a better version of ourselves. The pain of grief isn't something to "get over," and the messages we sometimes get from others to do it can lead to withdrawal, more pain, and more feelings of loss. Working through your grief isn't about "closure" -- trying to close the door on your sadness and loss doesn't serve you. But with support, you can find your way forward to growth, joy, and a fuller life.

Throughout the course of our lifetime, we will lose someone or something important to us (i.e. a loved one, pet, job/career, home, self-confidence). The feelings of grief are similar to symptoms of anxiety and/or depression. What you are experiencing is normal and everyone has their own way of grieving. However, staying in the process to long can lead to clinical depression. Our therapists are trained to help you understand the stages of grief and will provide you with the skills to move through the process. Give us a call today to learn more about how we can help you with grief & loss.

Life can present you with difficult situations which are hard to process and move past. These challenges are not on your timeline and affect everything. Having worked in many healthcare settings, I am familiar navigating life-changing events and grief. I understand the territory of encountering loss, coping with trauma, the complexity of the medical system and living with illness. These issues can have ripple effects on your relationships, sense of self and perceptions of the world. I know how complex things can get, and I will support you during this process.

Loss occurs in many aspects of our lives. The grief that comes with loss has a trajectory that must be honored, but that is not often known and therefore becomes "derailed." The opportunity to explore one's grief and express all aspects of it safely allows us to get "back on track" and move through the process appropriately to the point of beginning to recover and move on without leaving behind those things of value.

Everyone reacts to death differently. Some become numb and will eventually disconnect from friends. Despair sets in as the reality of the loss settles. The grieving process can be long and isolating. My objective is to counsel the soul with methods generated by the Spirit of God. So that the process is in reliance to Him. Receiving reassurance and feeling understood is also part of the counseling process and will make the recovery process more complete during one of life's most challenging times. Even Jesus wept. It is okay to do so. It is both natural and biblical to grieve. It is part of the healing process that I look forward to helping you through. You are not alone.

Aging, physical changes, limitations and challenges, terminal illness, loss and grief often require the help of a trained professional in order to feel whole and complete during this stage of life. The transpersonal perspective includes exploration of spirituality and is known to be one of the best for helping clients deal with change and loss in life. My own mindful awareness meditation practice and study in this area allow me to work well with clients in all stages of the grief process.

Grief and Loss is not just about the death of someone we love. It can be triggered by the loss of a pet or a friend, by a move to a new home, or even by a job promotion. Each time our "normal" changes, we experience some form of grief or loss. When I meet someone who is experiencing grief or loss, I know that their journey is going to be unique and the process will include stories from the past, reflection on dreams that are lost, and exploration of new possibilities for the future. Grief and Loss can be a lonely phase, but meeting with a counselor can help ease some of that burden even if there is no specific goal except to talk about what is on your mind this week.

Grief and loss are some of the most difficult issues we can encounter. The feelings can be very intense and feel as though they will never end. All feelings have a beginning, a middle, and an end. As we move through the stages of grief, we can feel confused about what is normal and what is to be expected. Seeking help will allow you to move through your issues more quickly and effectively. I will assist you in moving through the grief process towards healing and expanded growth.
