Grief needs time, and our society often does not allow us that time. Grief and loss therapy allows you the space and time to really understand what it is that you have been through and how you have been affected by it. Once this is done, (it takes time) it is possible to reclaim greater amounts of freedom that our grief had stolen from us. Don't let anyone tell you that you need to stop thinking about what happened and move on. It is only through thinking about what happened in a constructive way that we can actually have the power to move on.

Our grief is as individual as our lives. I use the 5 stages of grief identified by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. These stages have evolved since their introduction. They are responses to loss that many people experience, but honestly, there is no "cookie-cutter" response to loss, as there is no typical loss and everyone handles loss differently. I provide a safe and confidential environment to allow you the opportunity to explore your feeling of loss and grief, and help you release them.

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.

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.

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.
