Losing someone you have loved is very painful. Many difficult emotions may arise such as fear, anger, shock, uncertainty about your own mortality, guilt, etc. It is normal and natural to go through a period of time where you feel the loss at a very deep level. It is important to let yourself feel the loss instead of avoiding or coping with it in unhealthy ways. It is also important to know that these feelings will lessen, and you may find that your loss may turn into an opportunity for deep discovery. Everyone is different; therefore, everyone’s length of time and style of grieving is different. But, there is no shame in asking for support if you feel your grief is causing a significant chan

Much of life is about dealing with loss. We learn a great deal about ourselves by how we respond to these losses. Often, we do not allow ourselves the time to grieve. Due to this, we often find ourselves overwhelmed with emotions at a single loss, because it triggers years of accumulated losses. I work with clients to help them find closure and a way to move forward into their life.

While grieving is a healthy and normal life experience, it can also be hard, lonely, and confusing. Loved ones don't always know how best to support us. The unpredictable nature, intensity, and sheer variety of emotions we experience may make us feel like strangers to ourselves. In my work, I help clients to cope with the impact grief has on their moods, behaviors, thoughts, beliefs, physical well-being, relationships, work, and sense of self. I act as a compassionate guide, teacher, and deep listener as clients find their way through the pain of loss to a sense of healing. We may use written exercises, creative arts, or create rituals, according to a client's needs and wishes.

When you experience loss, it is normal to feel clumsy, confused, and overwhelmed or numb at times. Many people feel hopeless and worthless, and sometimes guilty and "left behind". My practice is focused on couples, and we often face our losses together as a couple. Counseling can help you learn how to be there for each other during your grieving. Counseling can help you if you desire to: Get the support you need to recover from loss. Identify the stages of grief and your progress through them. Find out what to expect, so you can stop wondering if your grief is "normal". Let go of painful guilt and shame about your losses, while building hope and renewed interest in your future.
