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.

Loss and grief has an impact in our lives of which we often do not understand, but it is a common thread that links all of us together. Unfortunately our culture is one in which it doesn't like to acknowledge or talk about it and often denies it's effect. My goal would be to help you understand your journey, acknowledge its emotions, help you embrace it and pass through this difficult period in your life. Please remember grief and loss is NOT a thing to be fixed in you, it is a process we often need more understanding about in accepting and dealing with it today and in our future.

Grief and loss in a part of life. The pain associated with grief can rob you of hope and the ability to move forward in your life. I believe that it is important to allow the natural grieving process to take it's course; however, it is also important to find hope and meaning for your life through this process of loss. Narrative therapy allows you to discover your own unique path of healing.

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.

Grief is a natural and normal response to life's losses. It is important to understand however, that grief is not a sign of weakness, nor lack of faith. Living through grief is never easy, and there is no specific time for the grief process. However, when carried grief overcomes your daily activities, or moves you into being absent from daily living, distorted thinking, or becomes chronic, my wise empathetic grief counsel can help. Symptoms of carried grief include but are not limited to having trust and intimacy issues, anxiety and panic attacks, fear of betrayal and change, irritability and agitation chronic fatigue and physical problems.

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!
