Grief and Loss is profound and a natural part of the life cycle. Losses occur everyday from a simple disappointment ( lunch cancelled) which is easily recoverable to a more significant and impactful loss ( a job,relationship,health or finances). I believe clients benefit from having their grief and loss witnessed by another and by having a place to process the experience and it's meaning to them. The benefit of therapy is to allow the individual to unfold and assimilate the loss which may never be "gotten over".

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.

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.

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.

Grief and loss are very personal experiences. The way each individual experiences these events is unique. Sometimes the feelings become overwhelming and begin to affect other areas of life. It is important to have a safe supportive environment where you can tell your story without guilt and without the usual quaint sayings often offered by friends and family. It is equally important to allow for the feelings connected to your situation, but also to gain understanding and new ways of coping. Please feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

Are you struggling to come to terms with the loss of a close family member or friend? Loss brings up many emotions - anger, anxiety, sadness, guilt or at times even relief. Allowing yourself to feel and process the different emotions is a part of the grieving process, although there is no right way to grieve. I have worked extensively with adults of all ages through the grieving process, helping them cope and move beyond the loss. Loss changes one's life forever - but the depths of grief can also be transformed to hope, resilience and a stronger sense of self leading to a more enriched life. Being present and attuned to you and your struggles, I will help you work through your grief.

When we encounter real tragedy in our lives, few of us have readily available tools for the ongoing pain that accompanies mourning, grieving, and loss. Tapping into authentic moments of grief can help us move beyond the pain and expand our idea of who we are as we grieve, yet doing this alone can be overwhelming and even scary at times. Grief work is critical to healing, and having a compassionate and seasoned guide to support the journey can be the means to feel, grow, learn, and ultimately heal from the grief of loss. Please know that you do not have to suffer alone. Grief can open many old wounds and you so deserve not to have to do this alone. I'm here, I can help, and I care.
