Loss due to a death can be overwhelming as strong emotions fill you and the daily tasks of life seem to be too much. Grief can be confusing and many are surprised by the waves of emotions that hit at unexpected times.Loss due to divorce can cause similar feelings as you struggle to make sense of your new life. Each creates a "new normal" and the passing of an old life. Getting support during this time can help you with this transition. My personal experience with grief and loss as well as my work as a trained grief counselor helps me to be supportive and caring. You are not alone, I am here to walk with you on this journey. Please call for support and understanding.

Grief will wait for you. While helping people cope with grief and loss, I cannot offer answers to the question "why"? But I can journey this path with you, providing support and a place to feel whatever it is you feel - for however long you need to feel it. You will likely be coping with many issues - insensitive friends, anniversaries of special times, and your own feelings. I can provide a safe place to process this emotion.

Relationship grief and loss can feel much the same as the grief and loss we experience through the death of a loved one. We progress through the same stages; denial, anger, bargaining, depression and finally, acceptance. Cognitive-behavioral therapy can help you as you work through these stages and develop a greater understanding of your self and your relationship to others. Whether you are mourning the loss of a loved one, or the loss of a relationship, therapy can provide a compassionate and supportive place for you to heal from the pain and learn to grow and be happy again.

When a person looses a loved one, life can become very, very dark. I understand, and I can help. Sometimes it is not a death. Sometimes it is the loss of a relationship, an estranged relationship, a divorce. Sometimes it is the loss of health or a career. But it is always something that is very dear to the person, and losing that something causes the person's world to fall apart. I know what it is like and I can help them navigate through the darkness, and help them find a new way of life.

Whether it is the loss of a friend or family member or the ending of a marriage or relationship, the pain of loss is a powerful time to grieve and to reflect about the meaning of your own life. Therapy for grief and loss can offer the opportunity to change and grow in profound and deep ways due to the vulnerability of emotions that may normally be unfelt or unexpressed. It is an opportune time to get support and to share your internal world with another.

I have taught and practiced grief counseling for over 24 years. One thing I observed early on is that people who share their grief with others progress through the stages of grief and get much relief, while those who try to grieve on their own seem to just stay locked into the early stages of suffering for many years. I offer compassionate and loving support through the process. Loving, gentle support can make all the difference.

Grief and loss is often complicated by a painful, irrational belief that you could have done something different to prevent it. Using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), clients can experience relief from the tremendous burden they carry of what they should have/could have/ought to have done differently. Through the processing of thoughts, feelings, sensations, and memories, clients feel a greater sense of relief and acceptance.
