Life brings about all sorts of change...constantly, and yet sometimes the change is too much to bear. Maybe its sudden, unexpected, or causing you to question your entire identity. Regardless, you don't have to figure how to move through the grief of loss alone. You can discover life again with a new definition of how to be in the world despite the loss you have experienced! I offer a safe, supportive environment where you can freely express yourself, so that we may uncover underlying beliefs and lifestyle practices contributing to the feelings of helplessness and lack of hope. I offer verbal therapy along with creative expression, mindfulness, and cognitive therapies to help you get your life back!

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.

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.
