Grief and loss is a delicate life experience. I will be mindful of where you are in your grief process and meet you there. I believe it is difficult to understand grief without experiencing it directly, which I have in many different ways. I process grief and loss issues in a variety of ways. One avenue is psycho-education on the grief/loss stages. Another tool is through creativity through art and writing. Bibliotherapy, reading grief books, is another coping strategy. Finally, a grief support group where you will meet others enduring pain is another instrument to work through the pain of losing a loved one.

Grief is a normal reaction to any type of loss. The therapeutic objective is to help bereaved individuals recover from the emotional pain caused by the loss. Therapy goals consist of: recovery from the loss to help the client feel better, choosing a healthier approach to grieving, finding new meaning for living, reducing fears and unhealthy ways for dealing with the loss, and having the ability to enjoy memories and connecting to the deceased rather than resorting to isolation/depression. My therapeutic approach consists of educating about the stages of loss, working on issues complicating the grief process, validating emotions and teaching better coping mechanisms to handle the loss.

Losing a loved one is hard to deal with and talking to the right person can really make a difference. Putting those messy emotions into a wrapped up package is not the way it is meant to be. The Kubler- Ross Stages of Grief will enable you to process grief if you know what to expect. Those stages are: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. These stages are not ones that are necessarily done in order when dealing with the loss of your loved one. Knowing what to expect and having the right counselor to talk with will help by giving you the tools to frame and identify this loss. It is time to start learning to live life to the fullest again.

Losing someone, finding yourself in a new family situation, having to move to a new home, losing something valued, can be traumatic and deeply troubling. The base of a person's reaction to loss is often times grief. How do we deal with the emotions which are created by that loss, how do we continue on in the new situation, how do we cope with all of this, especially when we feel so lost? Working to discover and release those negative emotions associated with grief and loss has been found to be a very successful way. Utilizing the most successful approaches, I help individuals, couples, and families learn how to use the internal resources they already have to overcome grief and loss.
