During the process of grieving, it is so important to have a safe and supportive place to talk about your loss. Though this time may be very difficult for you, it is so valuable to feel and express all the emotions and thoughts you are experiencing, so that eventually the storm will subside and you can move forward. Moving forward does not mean your loved one is ever forgotten, it just means that you can now find meaning and peace with life as you now experience it.

I help client recover from losses. I emphasize BEING WITH people grief and allowing them to feel their feeling fully.

Grieving can be such a complicated process, filled with mixed emotions. Even seeking closure can feel confusing and wrong at times. Therapy can provide a place to gently face painful feelings and thoughts. You do not need to stay stuck in the suffering, confusion, or pain. By processing through these layers with a trained professional, you can gain understanding, peace, and healing.

Losing a baby is the hardest challenge that any parent can face. There are no words to describe the grief and pain that follow. It is a loss that cannot be measured. Parents can feel utterly alone, wondering if they can survive as relatives and friends are encouraging them to move on. Anger can mount in trying to understand why. Grief and loss take time to heal. I work with fathers who have lost a baby, had a stillbirth, termination, or lost a baby in neonatal care. Take the time to reach out for help. This is a difficult journey that takes time and is slow. The death of a baby is hard for many to understand. I encourage you to care for yourself and reach out for help.

During times of loss it is important to ask for help and realize that you are suffering from a deep grieving process that a time table cannot be set too. I have been treating clients who have lost loved ones through both natural means and also violent crimes for over 15 years. Each person is unique and each process is different. It is important to me that I get to know my clients needs and help them with gentle coaching and compassionate understanding.
