Losing a loved one can be very difficult and feel isolating. I am certified in Walking The Mourner’s Path and can implement my training with you. We can walk through how to honor the loss in your life and also caring for yourself. I create a safe place to express what you’re going through and help to find purpose and hope after a loss. Walking the Mourner’s Path is grounded in scripture and your walk with God in the process.

We all share the universal human experience of loss and grief, and we respond to these significant life events in uniquely different ways. What those events are depends on how we define loss. For most of us, the death of a loved one comes immediately to mind, and brings with it a unique set of experiences. Separation from a partner, estrangement from family and even physical or emotional distance between two people indicate losses in our support system. I will guide you through the process of understanding what your loss means to you and how to make sense of loss. Together we will identify and normalize your emotions and thoughts and mindfully develop productive and healing grief responses.

When we experience a significant loss our worlds are turned upside down. We suddenly enter a disorienting and overwhelming season of life. The therapists at Agape Counseling will support you in your healing journey, providing a safe and caring environment where you can enter into the grieving process. Our individualized approach recognizes that there is no standard time-table for grief and that, in addition to the loss of a loved one, there are other losses, life changes, or difficult experiences that can also plunge a person into a time of grief. We offer grief & loss therapy for individuals (ages 9 & up), couples, and families. Contact our office to learn more.

Loss is painful whether it involves a person, pet, or even a part of ourselves such as health or a career. As human beings we are designed to attach strongly to the people we love. When attachment bonds are threatened we feel extremely strong emotions. Fortunately we are resilient beings and most often the thing that helps us most is having a safe and secure place to explore emotions and make sense of the loss. As we explore your grief we will work at your pace. Should the need arise we will explore any issues that might be complicate or interfere with the grieving process such as unfinished business or unresolved trauma.

Grief and loss are milestones that everyone will face at some point in their life. It is something that is unavoidable as we attach to others throughout life. I work closely with clients who are experiencing pain and difficulty in their lives due to a separation or loss of someone close to them. Together, we can work through these feelings and discover new ways of coping through these difficult times.

My goal is to assist my clients with giving themselves "permission" to grieve. I often find that people struggle with this emotion, particularly when they are grieving the loss of a relationship, and not a death. While I caution clients that grieving doesn't have an expiration date, we can get "stuck" in the past and not know how to move past the pain of yesterday. I aim to teach clients healthy and productive ways to express and process their emotions, such as anger, sadness and fear, and find effective ways to help them let go so they can begin to create a new life on their terms.

For four years, I volunteered at a local grief center for children. During this time, I was able to help several families going through the difficulty of losing a loved one. It was one of the many reasons I became a counselor. In therapy, I use expressive techniques to assists clients. Expressive techniques have been shown to improve mood, behavior and cognition.
