Grief & Loss

I respect the work of Alan Wohlfelt, who speaks of "companioning" the bereaved. That means I walk with my clients through their grief more as a sojourner and less as an expert or "professional". My primary goal is to hear, understand, validate, and normalize the process of grief and meet my clients wherever they are at in the process. I invite my clients to experience their grief and name it rather than run from it. It's only by going through it that one can get to the other side.
