I have worked with individuals, couples, children, and families as they cope with the loss of a loved one. More specifically, I coordinated a family bereavement program and provided therapy to family members at San Diego Hospice. As the Clinical Supervisor in the Bereavement Department I supervised approximately ten to fifteen therapist interns a year and provided intensive training on the topic of grief. Grief and loss does not always show up the way you think it will and I will honor your space with compassion and heart to grieve in whatever way is right for you. Sometimes, even life events that are both good and bad can bring up feelings of loss such as graduation, change in job, moving,

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.

Grieving the loss of a loved one is a very individual process. For many people, the hardest part of losing a loved one and grieving that loss is figuring out what to do with all the love they feel for the person or pet who is gone. Recovering from grief is not a linear process with specific timeframes. Grief counseling can aid you to understand your emotions and seek peace and restablish your sense of self.

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.

There are times when our losses add up...I have seen numerous clients who have lost several significant people in their lives and then, after a time, their energy starts to diminish. It can take awhile for people to realize that these unresolved losses are the culprit. I actually relish the opportunity to help clients with these situations because we have tools to process the grief and loss, resulting in their feeling much better and ready to resume their lives! The secret is that unprocessed grief and loss require energy. We gently stimulate this stored energy so that it becomes free energy-which can then be used for living today.
