When grief and loss occur unexpectedly, or even after an illness, it can have a profound, even shattering impact on daily life. And, although grief is not an illness, getting through the process of grief may require support. Sharing the story of loss can reduce symptoms of grief such as avoiding feelings of guilt, emptiness, sadness, depression and even the unspoken emotions of tearfulness. Each story of loss is unique and requires different approaches to get you back to life and happiness. Healing takes courage, I am here to help you find a new story of life, love and self. Loss can seem senseless, and with time, it can be channeled into new meanings and purpose.

Grief and Loss are an inevitable part of adult life, and it is not unusual for people to have experienced significant losses in childhood, as well. These are profound life experiences, which can leave people stuck in a prolonged state of depression, anxiety, trauma, melancholy...or any combination, or all of these. Also, any new losses can be charged with unresolved issues from previous losses. Therefore, as painful as it is, when you are going through your time of grief and loss, I hope you will let me guide you through the process of working through, learning how to cope with these kinds of experiences & mine wisdom from your suffering, but also to complete the grieving of old losses.

We experience loss around many different events in our life. Loss of a loved one, a job, our hopes and expectations, and financial security are some life changing circumstances that bring about grief and loss. I help to create a space where it feels safe to talk about the many different feelings, thoughts, and behaviors that can arise. You don’t have to go through this alone. Finding the right counselor can help bring you some relief to a difficult time.

Grief encompasses a broad range of feelings and behaviors that are common after a loss. Sadness is the most common feeling . It is common and expected to experience sadness if you have lost someone you love. One of the most important factors in healing is having support. Even if you are not normally comfortable talking about your feelings under normal circumstance, it is important to have some place where you can express them when your grieving. We can help you gain an understanding of your feelings and provide you coping strategies for dealing with the loss.
