Grief is a natural reaction to a loss, whether that loss is through death, divorce, separation, loss of a job or some sort of trauma. Each person deals with loss in their own individual way based on their history and how they've dealt with loss in the past. Counseling is an important step toward healing the pain and processing the thoughts and feelings associated with the loss.

We have all experienced loss at some point in our lives. Grief becomes very tricky when we start feeling stuck and can't seem to, or don't want to, move on. Complicated grief means you still feel as sad, angry and upset about the loss as you did in the days immediately following. Sometimes this is even years later. I help people process their loss through a trauma-focused lens. This means, I help people learn relaxation skills to help manage the strong feelings they have, gain insight into their current coping patterns and relationships, and detail what happened during the loss to obtain a different way of thinking about it.
