Grief and loss are some of the most difficult issues we can encounter. The feelings can be very intense and feel as though they will never end. All feelings have a beginning, a middle, and an end. As we move through the stages of grief, we can feel confused about what is normal and what is to be expected. Seeking help will allow you to move through your issues more quickly and effectively. I will assist you in moving through the grief process towards healing and expanded growth.

Although the emotions that follow such a loss can seem unbearable, grief is actually a healing process. Together, I wish to accompany you on your journey towards healing.

The grieving person is given a small opportunity to outwardly "grieve" in our culture. Compounded with the fact that it is sometimes easier "to keep busy" than to go through the pain. Counseling provides a designated time for one to allow themselves to feel whatever they may be with a supportive witness. The heart in grief is one that needs to be expressed as one moves toward healing.

The painful truth is that loss is a part of life. At times it can be overwhelming and cause one to remain stuck in the painful grief. I have worked with people for over 30 years helping them find a way back from the pain to living life again. It is never easy but I feel that working together with a therapist when you feel hopeless is essential to help one remain connected to life.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

Loss is inevitable. It is the flip side of love and the greatest pain we know. Hearts can break and hearts can heal. We must first accept ALL feelings. We can cultivate gratitude for the gifts our loved one gave us. Sometimes it is also important to acknowledge and learn from the mistakes of the one we have lost., the ways they may have caused pain to themselves and others. If the person has been a large part of our daily living, it is as if we need to recreate our lives bringing new resources into the emptiness. The waves of extreme pain become less frequent with time. The person's memory remains with us, and their gifts to us can inspire those very strengths in ourselves.
