While grieving is a healthy and normal life experience, it can also be hard, lonely, and confusing. Loved ones don't always know how best to support us. The unpredictable nature, intensity, and sheer variety of emotions we experience may make us feel like strangers to ourselves. In my work, I help clients to cope with the impact grief has on their moods, behaviors, thoughts, beliefs, physical well-being, relationships, work, and sense of self. I act as a compassionate guide, teacher, and deep listener as clients find their way through the pain of loss to a sense of healing. We may use written exercises, creative arts, or create rituals, according to a client's needs and wishes.

Losing someone you have loved is very painful. Many difficult emotions may arise such as fear, anger, shock, uncertainty about your own mortality, guilt, etc. It is normal and natural to go through a period of time where you feel the loss at a very deep level. It is important to let yourself feel the loss instead of avoiding or coping with it in unhealthy ways. It is also important to know that these feelings will lessen, and you may find that your loss may turn into an opportunity for deep discovery. Everyone is different; therefore, everyone’s length of time and style of grieving is different. But, there is no shame in asking for support if you feel your grief is causing a significant chan

I approach grief and loss with empathic cognitive behavioral techniques. Research studies have found that Cognitive Therapy is just as effective as medications. Some studies suggest that clients who receive CT or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) do not tend to have as much relapse after therapy is concluded. This outcome may be because clients learn coping skills that can be used in the future. CT may help you become more emotionally healthy, more resistant to life stressors and less prone to anxiety, depression, or other problem areas in the future.
