Grief is an emotional reaction to loss. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief will be. While many people associate grief with death, grief can come from divorce or the end of a relationship, loss of good health, loss of a job, miscarriage, loss of financial stability, loss of a pet, loss of a dream, loss of family home, and so many more reasons. After a loss it is important to let our feelings out, if we bury them, they later may come out as continual depression and sadness. It is important to honestly recognize the grief or sadness and work through it.

Loss of a loved one is devastating. Loss can also apply to other situations. Changes in location or employment, reduction in status or abilities, life transitions, unfulfilled dreams, personal violation, all can be significant losses which deserve to be grieved. I can help you to understand your loss in all of its implications, grieve thoroughly and appropriately, and take from your loss a treasure into a more meaningful future.

Grief is a process that does not exist within conventional timelines. Therefore, my role in therapy is to support clients wherever they are in their journey. While grief is traditionally defined as the emotions tied to the death of a loved one, loss is felt in terms of personal identity, change in family structure, possibly through divorce, or dreams that never came true. Our goal in therapy is to work towards forgiveness, acceptance, and establishing a new normal.

Everyone faces grief and loss, whether it’s over a romantic relationship or a job ending, a physical health problem, or the death of a loved one. We offer support to face grief, understand it, follow the innate mourning process, and integrate the change into life and your sense of self. We offer a safe place to explore the range of emotions which accompany loss, which really matters when friends and family don’t know how to stay with and witness the pain and sorrow. Grieving has its own demands and pace, and we will stay with you through it.

Losing someone we love is painful. Loss that is left unprocessed, beneath the radar of our hearts, however, can seriously impact our personal lives and key relationships. Grief that is felt and expressed, on the other hand, can strengthen and enrich life. While there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there are essential ways to make grieving a meaningful experience.
