Grief and loss. I support individuals and families in releasing their emotions and encourage them to identify and share the strengths of their lost loved one. This helps to create a special way to honor and remember their loved one, so that the spirit of the loved one can carry on in their lives, even though the person is no longer physically present. If an individual has difficult memories that emerged in their relationship with a loved one, I encourage them to release that pattern within themselves and replace it with positive growth. In this way, the person can be honored and the impact of the loss is greatly reduced.

I believe grief is something many of us experience but not something we must endure forever or even for long periods of time. During sessions for grief I help my client understand loss from a different perspective, move forward in their life and reconnect to the positive times they had with their loved ones. And for some they may even find a connection with that person in the here and now.

There are times in everyone's life when we go through the loss of someone or something that we love. While the grieving process is common to all of us it is also very personal. Each person reacts to grief in their own unique way based on the nature of the relationship, the specific circumstances, and our own personality. I will help you through this process in a way that brings dignity and respect to that relationship. A path of meaning and healing is possible and you do not have to walk that path alone.

Recovery from loss of a loved one - human or animal - can be a very up and down road. Sadness can linger and even turn into depression. If you are struggling to make sense of a loss or to regain your equilibrium and life, talking to a therapist can be of great benefit. Whether your loss was recent or years ago, you can achieve a sense of closure and peace.

Experiencing grief and loss is a universal experience. The process of grief can feel overwhelming and isolating for many. While no two people go through grief the same way, understanding what you are feeling and educating yourself about the grief process is benefical. Through education, you can move through your individual grief process and restore a balanced life again.

Everyone experiences grief or loss sometime during their lives. Whether you lose someone close to you or you lose a job, no one escapes the painful, sad feelings these events can bring. My therapy techniques help clients understand that grieving is a necessary process in order to come to terms with their conflicting states of mind. Because grief can have many stages, my goal is to support clients in their efforts to unravel the confusion they feel as a result of the anteceding event and find a way to accept the circumstances they have been given to live with.
