Loss...it is a pervasive human experience. We will all lose something/someone special to us at one time or another. It is our tendency to want to rush through this time. However, ignoring the pain, avoiding the emptiness will not resolve it. Together, one step at a time we can, through practical means cross this dark and difficult valley, find hope and restoration of joy once again.

Grief can be a crippling emotion. Normal grief reactions can show a wide range if behaviors from inconsolable crying to laughter to a nearly complete repression of all emotion. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, It is a unique experience for every person even if he/she has had multiple losses in their life. My goal is to help grieving individuals find their way through this difficult and emotionally draining experience to acceptance and integration of this phase of one's life story.

Everyone experiences grief and loss. It is the normal reaction to losing something that we care about and cannot replace. Grief is the process of wading through the questions that have no easy answers and learning to live without the thing that made life safe and calm. You cannot just "move on" or "get over it" and the road towards regaining your joy can be full of ups and downs. What you can do is talk to a friend who will listen without judgment and who will patiently struggle with you until you find your joy again.

Ideally, many people can process Grief or Loss without much professional assistance, if they have an adequate support system in their lives. Often, however, they encounter other challenges in their lives that complicate or delay this normal process, such as Substance Abuse, Guilt or Shame, Anxiety, or Anger Issues. Often client's may think things like: "I should have been a better ____" or "I can't survive without him/her" or "I can't forgive him/her for treating me that way." I generally enable client's to naturally process Grief or Loss by helping them to remove these frequent barriers to healing.
