When we suffer a loss we grieve, but often we are given bad advice on how to grieve - "You've grieved long enough, just move on" or "You shouldn't feel the way you feel." People may feel uncomfortable with the length or intensity of our expressions of grief and we may feel guilty about expressing grief. But feeling sad, overwhelmed and confused is a natural part of grieving. You must go through the process at your own pace. I will help you express and process your grief in a safe, supportive environment, so that you can begin to live again, not forgetting, but honoring your memories without being overwhelmed.

Loss is part of life. Most understand grief as a natural consequence of losing a loved one, but we often lose possessions, relationships, jobs, and dreams, and do not give these losses the attention they require. Grieving is the "antidote" to loss as long as the grieving process is effective. I would consider it an honor to be with you as you honor your losses through grieving. We will work together to help you discover a new context for your life in the light of what you have lost.

Ministry to those who are grieving ANY KIND OF LOSS -- a death, divorce, separation, loss of a job, loss of a career, children graduating and moving off to college, leaving singlehood behind to get married, letting go of your dreams, leaving couplehood behind when the first baby comes, the loss of ANY relationship, health losses and changes . . .it is all loss and grief. Healing takes time, and my approach with my clients is to provide a safe environment in which to grieve, providing strong support, constant compassion, mercy, and the strength to challenge and nudge when it's time to GET UP and grieve on your feet, fully standing, tall and strong. I have suffered, overcome, & can identify.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

No one can live and not experience the pain of loss. Our culture typically views a loss as something to be replaced. Rushing to replace a loss without embracing the many emotions that come along with it will compound the pain and hinder our ability to move forward. There is simply no getting "past" the loss of a job or one's health. Losses must be commemorated with expressions of mourning and grief. Losing a pet, a friend or a cherished dream is a painful experience for even the strongest among us. Ask for help and be patient with yourself.

The process of bereavement is ongoing with ups and downs. I address bereavement in a non-pathological manner through sharing the reality of death, sharing the grieving experience, defining, restructuring and constructing meaning; and moving toward closure. I use writing as therapy, bibliotherapy, and the co-constructing of rituals. My goal is to help clients connect their past to their present; find meaning in their loss and move toward a new future.

Grief and loss can be experienced as a result of death, divorce, a change in your work or living situation, or anything that causes a significant change in your life. The feelings that arise can be very mixed. Sometimes sadness is mixed with relief, the relief mixed with guilt, and just when you feel you’ve got your feet on the ground, the ground seems to drop out from under them. The process of healing from loss is complex. Often hurts that were buried for years arise with the onset of the loss. My goal is to support my clients through this painful time, and to help you develop new strengths and wisdom so that as you heal, you will find yourself stronger and wiser than ever before.

I help men who are dealing with grief and loss, either of a loved one or the loss of a marriage or a relationship. A lot of times it's really difficult for men to get in touch with their emotions, and in grief, it's often not an exception. Men have a hard time with grief, just like women, and have a hard time experiencing loss. For guys, loss is not something that were used to, because we're often so acclimated to winning. to be a man is to win in our society, but life often has other plans. I help men struggle through the difficult experiences of grief and loss, and come out the other side.

When a loved one passes, the sense of loss is real and deeply felt. You may be missing your best friend, family member, parent, spouse, or child. The loss can leave you challenged to find new ways to live with the emptiness, but you don't need to face this transition alone. Talking about your grief and loss with a therapist can help you to feel safe in expressing your feelings of grief, begin to talk about the loss in ways that honor your relationship with your loved one, and find peace in a way that is right for you. You have lost a member of your family, speak to a family therapist.
