Most of us have experienced grief or loss at some point in our lives. Grief and loss are not just about losing a loved one or a family member. Those feelings can accompany a job loss or a change in circumstances, the ending of a relationship or a divorce, experiencing an illness or an accident, and a whole lot more. Whatever the event, it can be devastating. There is hope. I provide a comforting place to talk about your feelings and memories, and I will be a solid support for you through this difficult time. When you are ready, I help you move forward and redefine your life in a way that makes sense for you.

Grief is often misunderstood. Most people associate it with death. But grief is also associated with any loss, such as divorce, a break-up, children going off to college, having to move, retiring. I see people suffering for years over a loss that they didn't believe was big enough to mention or allow themselves to be saddened by... let alone the ones that are. I work with the whole person in their world. I travel the loss with them and see through their eyes. Transitions can be very difficult and you never need to go through it alone.

When a person loses a loved one, whether it be a close family member, a pet or a friend, the feelings that are associated with the loss can be crippling. Just completing every day tasks can feel like a mountain that is impossible to climb. With guidance and support, it is possible to move forward in a healthy manner and gain the pleasure back into your life.

The stages of grief and loss individuals spend different lengths of time to express and achieve hope and acceptance. In nurturing counseling sessions I assist clients in understanding the stages of grief and in adopting healthy ways of expressing their anger and pain. When clients are depressed and in mourning it is so necessary for them to have some one to share their feelings with and learn healthy tools for an opportunity to achieve peace.
