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.

Grief is emotionally, intellectually, and physically painful. Unfortunately, to move beyond grief, you have to allow yourself to experience every aspect of it. I will walk with you. Whether you have lost a loved one, a relationship, or a dream, I will help guide you through the stages of grief and make sense of your jumbled thoughts and emotions. I am especially drawn toward helping parents grieve infertility, pregnancy loss, perinatal loss, infant loss, and adoption loss.

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!

Loss and suffering in life seem almost unavoidable. Whether it's the death of a loved one, a lost or unhealthy relationship, or the feeling of hopelessness that can come from a loss of vision or identity. Grief and loss is a vital place of the human experience that I am confident can be comforted and redeemed in the context of a relationship with God and others. It is core to understanding the value and impact of your life and I would love to help and encourage you in this place of feeling despair and hopelessness.

Have you been experiencing grief in ways that hinder the joy and satisfaction you would like to have with your present life? Grieving is normal: the death of a loved one or close friend; the loss of a highly valued pet; the unexpected loss of a job or social position; or the loss a person can experience from unfulfilled expectations with life in general. Losses in life will seldom, if ever, be forgotten; but their power to immobilize one's forward path in life can be reduced or deleted through appropriate counseling and therapy.

Your loved one will always be a part of you. The process of acceptance, and integration of their memory and the emotions around this, is a journey. Don't let anyone tell you that you should be over your loss in a set amount of time. We are all do grief differently. Our current culture is often not helpful with this process. Sometimes those closest to us are not helpful either. I have lost both parents, and 25 years ago suffered the loss of my brother. My family had no experience with healthy processing of grief. My experience informs my training and passion for wanting to be a place of compassion and empathy for you and your loved ones. Help is available now
