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 is a normal process, one we all must go through to move through our sorrow and heal. But it is a also a process in which we can become stuck in ways that cause us to remain stuck in our pain, limiting our ability to move forward in our lives. You might be avoiding or resisting the sadness of your loss, experiencing extreme guilt or depression, or feeling immobilized by your grief. As you work through your grief, you will begin to feel more connected to the world and, although you will never forget your loss, you will work through your grief in a way that allows you to feel whole again and to move through the world in healthier ways.

Grief and loss are part of life; yet, people who are experiencing loss and grief can be misunderstood by those around them. At times, those who grieve can feel isolated from others. Sometimes people around them don't understand what they are going through and ask questions like. "Why can't you get on with life?" "Why can't you get over it?" I create a safe environment for clients to process their grief over their losses, whether it be a death of a loved one, the loss of a relationship, the loss of health or the loss of hopes and dreams for the future. We work together to find ways to cope with the pain and find joy in life once again.

Grieving has several different stages and my approach is to help clients process and normalize the range of emotions they may experience with loss. I also normalize the fact that people grieve in different ways and in their own time frame. Loss can take many forms: loss of relationship, job, illness/injury, pets; it isn't limited to the physical death of a loved one. I've found that doing some sort of physical representation of what was lost can be very healing, for example a collage, drawing, or scrap book.

Each loss is unique and so is the treatment. You may need a witness to tell your story in a safe, respectful place or find strategies to deal with unresolved issues with an important person you lost or a job. I can help you through this by using different strategies, such as, writing unsent letters to the person you lost, visualizing ways of moving on while establishing rituals to maintain good memories, connecting with support groups as needed,etc.

I have guided many people going through the loss of a family member or friend. I am currently working with a client who lost his mother. He has begun to feel better and remember his mother in ways that are deeply meaningful to him. I have also experienced losses which gives me a greater understanding of what you may need to express your feelings and continue to live a full life.

Grief and loss are a natural and unavoidable part of life, whether it is a sudden loss, like the loss of a loved one to death, or a more gradual loss, like the loss of physical vitality with illness or aging. When a very large loss overwhelms us and makes life seem painful and perhaps meaningless, it is time to get help to put that loss in perspective. I help people to work their way through loss and find ways to make it part of the larger mosaic of their life, helping them reduce the overwhelming pain and helping them find hope and meaning again.

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.

Most people who come to therapy are suffering from some loss, whether from a death of a loved one or the loss of a job or of a relationship. There is also the loss of dreams. Together, we work to find out what the losses have been and to "work through" them. This is hard work, but on the "other side" of this work, once it has been done, is the energy and vitality and the peace of mind that has been missing. I usually use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) for this work, as there is so much research to support it, and it works quickly compared to most therapeutic approaches.

Individual sessions are focused on helping you not just cope but recover from loss, using The Grief Recovery Method One-on-One Program. This is a 7 week program in which we will meet once a week. Recovery from loss is achieved by a series of small and correct choices made by the griever. It is my job, along with The Grief Recovery Handbook, to explain those action choices to you, and guide you in taking them. Grief Support Groups provide a safe environment for you to look at your old beliefs about dealing with loss, which losses have affected your life, and take actions that will lead you to complete unresolved emotions that may still be causing you pain. It’s an action-based group that involves reading and writing assignments outlined in The Grief...(view profile to read more)
