Jesus said that we would have trouble in this world. But He also said for us to take heart, because He has overcome the world (John 16:33). It's not easy to find such heart in the midst of grief, but purpose can be found in our suffering, and God promises to bring good out of bad situations (Romans 8:28). If you are grieving, contact KCM for guidance and support.

The experience of grief and loss, while expected at various life stages, can result in physical pain, and the emergence of symptoms that lead to experiencing a slow downward spiral in overall wellbeing, and perhaps desire to withdrawal from personal and professional commitments. Many clients seek compassionate and sensitive guidance to navigate through the ups and downs of any number of losses, ranging from diminishing health, to ending a relationship, or other life transition. Together, clients and I develop a transformative plan to stabilize, heal, gain insight and to enhance their proficiency to improve the strength needed to reconstitute their skills and hopes for today and the future.

Loss occurs in our lives in many forms. We struggle with unsolicited changes in our lives as well as changes that are more or less expected parts of our life's journey. Some are easier to adapt to, yet some are quite difficult. I work with clients who have lost loved ones, lost jobs, homes, health, beloved pets, many different things that have had special meaning in their lives. Not all grief is as devastating as some, but all grief is valid and worthy of respect. I provide a shoulder to lean on, an ear to listen, and a desire to help as my clients process grief and look for the next step in their lives.

When we lose someone we love, it feels like we have lost a part of ourselves. Something within us has been torn out, leaving a hole that we easily imagine will never heal. The pain can be profound, the feelings of helplessness, or regret, or guilt overwhelming. Having a partnership where you can talk through these feelings can make a huge difference not only in how quickly and how well you are able to move through the process of grieving, but also how you ultimately are able to frame the experience and your memories of the person lost into the narrative of your own self and life as you move forward. What you carry with you afterward is just as important as surviving the hurt of the loss.
