Life brings challenges and changes. Grief and loss are a necessary part, but they can be so difficult! I help people understand how "normal" their grief is, as well as to process their reactions, deal with practical matters, regroup with significant others, and rediscover their joy. Grief can be painful, but the intensity of it needn't last forever, and you needn't continue to suffer without support.

Grief is a short word that encompasses losses of many kinds. Grief begins when you lose someone close to you, experience a traumatic event, face an unexpected illness, have your children move away from home, and so on. Over the years I have seen clients deal with grief in their own personal ways. My clients inevitably ask, "Will this get better?" I don't think it gets better, I think it gets different. You will integrate this loss into your life and things will be different. And time does help. I often recommend books, help clients work through any unfinished business surrounding the loss, and provide a comforting presence for whatever they want to talk about that session.

Personal loss is a painful process and requires time to heal. Having a healthy means to work through grief is important. In my counseling experience I have had the opportunity to walk many individuals through the grief process. Because of my background in Christian ministry I find that I can also help people sort through the questions they have about faith and loss. One of the common questions I hear is, "How can a loving God allow this to happen?" If you are struggling with loss and have more questions than answers you need to find a safe place to process your feelings, find comfort and hope. I would like to walk this journey with you.
