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.

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.

Grief is the most complex series of emotions humans are capable of, and it invades our lives at the most inconvenient times. Our first reaction is to bury these feelings and push them below the surface so we can carry on with our day-to-day lives. We opt for appearing like we have it all together while trying to numb the pain through various activities—resorting to anywhere from workaholism to alcoholism. But the feelings will return, and if deeply suppressed, may return with a vengeance years later. Unresolved grief can lead to depression, anger issues and a host of other problems. You can heal through this experience and I'm willing to walk with you on the journey.

Loss is part of life. Grief is the process of adjusting to loss and it can be extremely painful in the best of times. When there are complicating factors the grieving process can become unbearable or blocked. Most losses can be grieved with only the support of friends and loved ones. When this is not enough, professional counseling can help unblock the process. I work with people on a personal level to find the causes of problems with the grieving process, remove them and help walk through the pain that leads to freedom.

The length of the grief process is different for everyone. There is no predictable schedule for grief. Although it can be quite painful at times, the grief process should not be rushed. It is important to be patient with yourself as you experience your unique reactions to the loss. With time and support, things generally do get better. However, it is normal for significant dates, holidays, or other reminders to trigger feelings related to the loss. Taking care of yourself, seeking support, and acknowledging your feelings during these times are ways that can help you cope.

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.

Grief is a normal reaction to loosing someone or something. It is emotional anguish you feel when someone or something is taken away from you. The more significant the loss the more extreme the grief will be. Each person grieves in their own way. It is my hope that I can walk along side you in this journey and offer hope and healing through the therapeutic process.

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.
