All of us have experienced loss--whether it's the death of someone we love, a relationship that fails,never having had the necessary attachment to our parents as young children that build the foundation of security and self-esteem, or (usually) a combination of them. I view loss as consisting of both acute events and longstanding unresolved feelings that have never been fully grieved. I view my responsibility to you to help identify both the present and longstanding feelings of grief and guide you safely through this often painful process. As we work through this, you will find that what has felt like will affect you deeply forever is not true, and can become open to a richer life.

Grief counseling and grief therapy are totally different. Grief counseling is assisting the individual through a normal grief process of mourning. Grief therapy is for complicated grief were the individual has conflicts related to separation such as excessive grieving or mourning, the absence of grief, or the the process of grief that is delayed or prolonged. Clients will benefit from working with me because they will know I possess the knowledge and clinical skills to help them in their time of need and beyond.

You may experience grief from any significant loss including loss of a person, divorce, job loss, loss of health, loss of a friend who has moved, or loss of the familiar when you move. Each kind of loss affects each person in a different way. Common feelings include numbness, not feeling yourself, anger, depression and anxiety. Our focus is on helping you recover from the loss and move through the grief process without getting stuck. Everyone grieves in their own way. Our approach is as a supportive guide, helping you make the transition by understanding and coping with your feelings and reactions, developing self-care, support, and compassion and helping you reach a stage of acceptance.

While there can be common traits we share when we experience grief, we each experience loss in a personal way. Some people become overwhelmed by tears and sadness. Some may feel disconnected. We can experience grief with the death of a loved one, in the process of divorce; or even in relation to a significant change in our life. Many people have experienced loss in these difficult economic times, forced to change careers that once sustained them and their families. Many people must work past a time when their parents may have been able to retire and live a life of leisure. The strongest thing someone can do is to reach out for help if they are stuck in a cycle of grief and despair.

Grief and loss can be a normal part of our lives; however, sometimes our pain lasts longer than we expected or is more intense than we anticipated. Sometimes you just need a little help in your path. I work with clients who are dealing with various types of grief--death of a loved one, loss of a relationship, or even the loss of how you see yourself. Sometimes, our friends and family don't know what to say or are afraid to ask after we have experienced a loss. I help clients recover by providing an empathetic ear and providing a caring place to tell your story. Further, I help clients to rediscover who they are following the loss, while redefining themselves and finding joy again.

To experience loss is to be human. There is no way around it. In our lives, all of us will lose loved ones. Some of us will lose marriages, careers, dreams that we care about deeply. Grief comes to all of us, but we each go through it in our own ways. It helps to talk with friends and family and to participate in support groups. A good therapist can offer even more for someone who is grieving. You can tell a therapist many things that you might not tell a friend and be listened to without judgment. In counseling, you can also find ways to move through grief without getting stuck. It is possible to find your way back to hope and life again.

Grief and loss occurs in many forms. It may not be due to the actual death of a person, but the loss or end of a special relationship. Exploring the many facets of this relationship and the ways in which this person added meaning to your life can be beneficial in moving forward with your life. My hope is that I can help you through this process and help decrease the turmoil you may be experiencing.

People are built to be able to deal with a certain amount of grief and loss. It is usually difficult, but there is a time of adjustment and we begin to move on. Sometimes, however, we are unable to move on and we get "stuck" in our grief. It doesn't matter what we have lost, whether it is a loved one, a marriage, a beloved pet, or a job, sometimes we need help moving past the grief we experience. If it has been more than a few months and you are not getting better, reach out and get help. Call today.
