Grief and loss come in so many forms from the more obvious losses loved ones, jobs, income and homes to loss of our security, value, dignity and self-esteem for a variety of reasons. A person needs to know they matter. Empathizing with and caring for the pain of losses is fundamental to being cared for as a person first. I want to help you to quickly appreciate that you matter, are not alone, don't need to be fixed, but rather just cared for.

Grief and loss can be a very complicated and scary circumstance for many people. Therefore, clients generally must feel very safe and cared for in a therapeutic environment. I will create a safe space to help clients identify their grief and sadness and process the feelings associated. Clients will therefore eventually begin to feel relief as they move through their grieving process.

A job loss, a close relative's or friend's move, a physical disability,a new stage in life are losses. Losses occur all through one's lifetime. Some losses can feel as if the ground upon which you stand is shaky and unreliable. Those losses bring about questions concerning identity and an unknown future. Meaningful losses involve close relationships. In counseling, you will find an opportunity to grieve that loss, an understanding of the symptoms of loss, and continue on the path of healing. Grieving is a roller coaster ride that some days will involve acceptance and other days involve anger, sadness, and aloneness.

Loss can elicit so many complex feelings and thoughts. I offer a safe, non-judgmental place for clients to say and feel whatever they need to express. Grief is often a scary and painful place to be, yet needs to be experienced and moved through rather than avoided--experiencing grief with the guidance of a caring professional can make this process less daunting.

It is impossible to avoid experiences of grief and loss in one's lifetime. Everyone experiences and processes these emotions and situations differently. I believe that by meeting clients where they are, in the grief experience, and helping them understand and know that hope exists is a critical component to helping them heal. I want my clients to know that they are not alone and that they have a safe place to share the darkness and desperation of their souls.

Grief and loss can result from the loss of a spouse or a loved one or it can even be due to a loss of physical or financial independence. Many times senior citizens aren't given the care and respect that they deserve so I like to do my part to help create a society that values and treats our seniors with respect.

Loss often leaves us drowning in an unknown ocean and can be stormy seas to navigate on your own. A new way of living is required in the absence of familiar surroundings and patterns. Whether losing a job or a spouse, either through death, divorce or some unexpected circumstance, missing what once was, even if it is by our choice, is a natural response. Yet, the process of letting go is hard. Life Practice offers calm harbor in transitional times of tempest. Help with changing to the new can be what keeps us afloat from the undertow of despair . We'd be honored to provide guidance, anchorage and safe haven as you find your sails for a new life.

The best way I can describe the grief experience is that everything feels surreal and our brain feels like it's under water. Sometimes we can't make a complete thought. Often we feel disconnected from others. Other times our pain is so intense we feel that if it doesn't ease up, we might die from it. Our "normal" is disrupted and between the time we pass from our old normal to a new normal we travel through intense emotions. We can experience grief because someone we loved died. But we also experience grief from other losses, such a divorce, lost jobs, news of sickness or chronic illness, friendships, moving to new cities. Simply put, change, even small ones can create a grief response.
