Loss and grief are painful, difficult, yet normal experiences we all go through as human beings, whether they be the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship or the loss of a dream. Sometimes loss can bring up unresolved concerns from our past, which complicates matters. If you want an experienced person to listen, feel stuck in the grieving process or worry that you have become a burden to friends and family, I can accompany you and help you move through the grieving process. By appreciating and mourning what you have lost, you become more free to move on with your life, and can emerge more wise and more open to joy.

Grief cracks you wide open. It seems the pain will ever end. Life continues and everything is going faster than you are. Maybe people are saying platitudes – to help you feel better. But it doesn’t help. Maybe no one wants to talk about your loved one, and that is actually worse. You don’t want him or her to be erased. Just getting through the day takes all the energy you have. You see your loved walking, but it's not him. You smell her scent, but it's not her. At the same time, you’re supposed to be making financial and practical decisions, and likely still trying to work. It can feel crushing or numb. You don’t have to go through this alone. I can help. I’ve been through it myself.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In coping and adjusting to an environment, where the person is no longer around or has deceased, it is a necessary step towards acceptance. I work with the bereaved to start the acceptance, the healing, preserving the memories and begin rebuilding a new environment with hope for the future. You will get assisted in a nurturing way to help you find the strength to establish new routines or adapt previous ones, that worked well. You will slowly work on the acceptance that even though the physical presence of the departed may be missing, you can continue to relate to them through rituals, feelings and memories. You will also work on the reason why this person choose to come into your life.

With respect to grief and loss, I generally only work with people who have experienced a traumatic loss and then are unable to move past it, even after a lengthy amount of time. The grief process is unique to each individual, and depending on your relationship with the person who has passed, it can take a long time to heal. However, if it appears that there is no progress being made in the healing process and the loss was traumatic, I can help with resolving the trauma to allow the healing process to continue.

Grief and loss are often mismanaged by therapists who do not understand the difference depression and grief. If you are dealing with a loss that doesn't seem to be diminishing, or is interfering with your functioning for a period of time that does not seem reasonable to you, now may be the time to seek a consultation. The pain of the loss does not have to last forever.
