Someone who is grieving, I believe, needs someone's presence the most. That is why counseling can be so helpful to the grieving soul. Listening to the pain, sharing stories, hearing their triggers that sent them crying-no matter how silly they seemed. Grief needs time. Grief needs space. Grief is work. Hard work. It needs some direction and some light gentle pushing, but compassion as well. I hope to be that kind of counselor for the grieving, because I too have grieved.

While grieving over losses is very natural when we lose someone who has been significant for us, it can send us down to the darker side of our psyche. The more important the person was in our lives, the more deeply we tend to grieve. We can turn to examples of grieving in the archetypes of our collective past to help us understand and gain value for ourselves from this profound process.

Ministry to those who are grieving ANY KIND OF LOSS -- a death, divorce, separation, loss of a job, loss of a career, children graduating and moving off to college, leaving singlehood behind to get married, letting go of your dreams, leaving couplehood behind when the first baby comes, the loss of ANY relationship, health losses and changes . . .it is all loss and grief. Healing takes time, and my approach with my clients is to provide a safe environment in which to grieve, providing strong support, constant compassion, mercy, and the strength to challenge and nudge when it's time to GET UP and grieve on your feet, fully standing, tall and strong. I have suffered, overcome, & can identify.

We will all experience grief of some type at some time. Among these are death, divorce, miscarriage, relationships, job loss, financial harm, death of a family pet, or loss of someone you love due to addiction, dementia, or other health concerns. There are stages that most go in and out of including denial, shock and disbelief, questions of why, anger, questioning of faith, sadness or depression, guilt, to eventually acceptance and peace. Grief and loss can cause physical and emotional problems but avoiding grief can sometimes cause even more emotional, physical, and relational problems that the grief itself. Come in and we'll work through the stages of grief in a way that is best for you..

We all experience grief and loss during the course of our lives. Grief and loss can take many forms, whether we've lost a job or a loved one, it can be a difficult process. Even a decline in health can lead to a form of grieving. It's important to remember that grief and loss are normal and expected life events. We can't prevent these events from happening but we can choose to deal with them in ways that are healthy. Letting grief go unchecked can lead to depression and bitterness. Grief counseling can be helpful for the individual who is working through the stages of grief. If you have experienced loss recently or in the past, I would like to help you work through your process.
