Experiencing the loss of a loved one is a traumatic event in one's life. The hardest day is often the day after the memorial service or funeral. Grief is a natural reaction to loss that for some is a long journey towards healing. It can be lonely and overwhelming. With patience, understanding, and support, I will accompany you on that journey. As one who was widowed at an early age and experienced significant loss in my own life, I understand and can empathize with your experience and can provide the professional guidance and reassurance you may need to heal.

Grief and loss are events that we all encounter. Handling traumatic loss and grief with dignity is a right available to all who seek answers to life's most challenging times. The goal of closure is frustratingly illusive when dealing with traumatic loss and does not honor the realities of significant loss in life. When a person inevitably can not put 'closure' on significant loss they usually internalize a sense of failure around who they have become. Seeking how to blend loss into one's life as a part of our spiritual development allows a person to fully grow from the inevitable experience of loss while learning how to live a fuller life in their altered world.

Relationship endings are a guaranteed part of life that everyone experiences. When a relationship concludes – whether through death, divorce or some other reason – it is common to review it, examine it and even wish that something about it was different. Perhaps we regret something we said or longed to hear something from the other person. Endings are accompanied by conclusions to our hopes and dreams for the future. My approach to working with grieving clients is to permit them fully feel their loss and to process their grief in their own way and at their own pace. When it comes to grieving clients I will join with them in their loss and will encouraging them to feel all the feelings that surface about the person and the relationship they shared.
