Dealing with the loss of a loved one is never easy but it doesn't have to devastate you either. My therapy approach is well suited to minimizing the negative effects of grief and loss while honoring the natural progression of emotions while adjusting to life without this person or this human function. I also provide a variety of resources for you so that you feel supported while you go through the process.

Grief can be overpowering in its intensity. It can tap into previous times of loss and grief as well. My approach is to help individuals build their capacity for feeling this intense emotion. It is one that none of us can escape. It is inevitable in numerous ways whether through the loss of a significant other, a beloved pet, a dream for one's future, a job or a home, or one's health. Developing a secure sense of one's ability to experience the pain and intensity helps us know that we will survive the losses that do come.

I process with the client verbally the loss in regards to family of origin whether it be relatives, close friends, or work relationships. Over a period of sessions, the grief becomes less and less, and the client is able to concentrate on moving forward and letting go, and return to an active lifestyle both emotionally and physically. I provide for a safe environment that leads to healing, support, and empathy.

In grief and loss feelings of isolation and aloneness along with shock and disbelief can cause us to shut down or deny the pain and emptiness inside. It is normal to have intense feelings or no feelings at all in the early stages of loss. When we cut off or deny our feelings we cut off the recovery process. As a therapist I provide a stable relationship that provides the opportunity to identify, feel, and express the variety of thoughts and feelings each client has. This allows the natural grieving process to progress and relieves the emotional pain caused by loss. Healing occurs when we feel connected to a stable accepting person who supports our unique way of coping with grief.

'Only time heals all wounds' is an appropriate saying. The pain of a loss can be unbearable and, at times, overwhelming. Loss is not dealt with in our culture. Why should you "just get over it"? I focus sessions on is helping you to learn to tolerate the pain and to the manage the intense sadness, anger, and grief you may be experiencing. I bear witness to your pain and help you, with time, to come through the experience.
