So much of grief recovery entails facing and ultimately accepting the pain of loss. If have suffered a loss, I will work alongside you to help you engage your pain, walk through it, and ultimately walk out of it into hope. The aim is not to stay entrenched in your loss or try to forget it. What matters is that you allow yourself to experience the loss, learn how it has affected you, and incorporate it into the story of your life. Loss does not need to have power over you; if you grieve in your own unique way, you will find its grip lessened and the freedom to live on the other side of it.

I respect those individuals and families who are willing to share their emotional suffering of grief, loss and trauma with me. Grief is a natural reaction to loss no matter how great or small. Sometimes grief can be severe and debilitating. My role as a counselor is to permit the opportunity to be taught about your experience of grief. I utilize the companion model of grief which is to assume the role as a companion to the grieving individual. I would offer the survivor a venue to honor the spirit of the loss. To talk about details surrounding the loss. I would be attentive and supportive in listening to explore the impact of the loss. "When we break-down we break-open to new possibilities."

Grief is a natural response to loss. It is the emotional response we feel when someone or something is no longer there. Grief can set in after the death of a loved one, divorce, lost relationship, employment, quitting an addiction, empty nest syndrome, death of an animal, etc… Therapy will provide education on the grieving process, teach healthy coping skills, and help you move forward while celebrating the positives.

Cognitive behavioral therapy can help you accept your loss and cope in the short-term, as well as prepare you for future grief and loss in the future. No one can tell you what it's going to feel like or how long it is going to last, but therapy can give you the tools to manage during this difficult time. This style of therapy is relatively brief, which often comes as a comfort to people who confuse grief and loss with feeling "depressed" - they're actually not the same things! Therapy can be helpful for either, and doesn't have to last for years on end!

I will listen to you and validate your feelings and experiences. I will encourage you to mourn your loss and experience your grief. Regardless of the extent of your pain, you will benefit physically and mentally from walking this journey of grief. You must do it yourself, but I can support and aide you on this path. You will learn that the depth of your grief is a measure of your loss and that in time, your pain will subside. You will learn the stages of grief. You will learn to express your needs and desires to others. Together we will find means for you to process your loss, such as journaling and bibliotherapy, sharing your grief with others, and reaching out for support.

Sometimes it is hard to see the good in life or find motivation to "move on," when you have lost someone that was very close to you. This causes us to question our purpose in life. Oftentimes it leads us to question God or what goodness there is in the world. Grief counseling can help you explore these difficult life questions and help you reach a state of closure.

Losing someone you love can be devastating.

When you need support to work through this gut wrenching transition, I'm here to help you through the grieving process.

One of the lessons that I have been taught that hit me the hardest was the importance of allowing clients to feel their pain and to walk with them through it. I’ve learned that, all too often, the people around a grieving or struggling person will do whatever they can to make that person “feel better” or they tell them to “cheer up” because “it’s okay”. Sometimes, we just need someone in our lives who can tell us, "It's NOT okay, but we are going to walk through this together." I can help you name your loss and help you map your way forward in a world that, ofr you, may have changed forever.

Surviving loss, grief, and trauma is a painful process that leaves one forever changed. Grief is a normal, and very personal process, in response to loss. As part of the human condition, grief is usually most effectively processed in the company of caring people, family or friends. For those whose grief seems overwhelming, too much to bear, or burdensome to others, seeking the assistance of a qualified, caring therapist is helpful. Mostly as a therapist, I'm with you to assist in processing your loss, coming to acceptance and resolution, re-embracing "what is", and re-entering the world, usually transformed somehow. Often grief is a healthy sign that we have loved well.
