I understand the tremendous sorrow we experience when losing someone special in our lives. Beyond our loss, grief can also leave us in isolation. Friends and family may not know what to do to help, so they do nothing, or say things that invalidate our feelings. I do not believe we move through "stages" of grief. While we may experience emotions like denial or anger, grief often manifests as a great wave-- some days it knocks us down, some days we ride it out. Do not sit alone in your grief. I will walk with you through feelings of pain and emptiness, while honoring the memory of your loved one and navigating your life in its new normal.

Grief is a normal part of our lives, but it feels so jolting and unnatural when we're in the midst of it. We can experience grief as a result of a loss of a loved one, a job, a miscarriage...any loss that changes our lives or our future. In our therapy work together, we'll evaluate the loss itself, dreams and hopes connected to it, and the different feelings that will hit you along the way. I want to walk through your loss with you.

Grieving a loss can feel overwhelming and isolating. Whether you are grieving a recent loss or need to process a loss from your past, a safe space to freely express your thoughts and feelings can be healing. Children's response to loss is framed by their developmental capacities. For this reason, children may process a loss and then need to reprocess at a later stage of development. Therapy provides an opportunity for children and adolescents to process their loss in age appropriate ways.

The death of someone we love is devastating and painful for all of us. All of your feelings are "normal" and it is ok to allow yourself the opportunity to experience them. But sometimes the sad, anxious thoughts and feelings do not dimish and you may need help in dealing with your grief. I provide a safe and compassionate place for you to share your thoughts, feelings and memories as well as helpful stratagies to help you cope and find meaning in this life altering loss.

According to the Kubler-Ross model, there are five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. I believe that the grieving process is different for everyone. I think the most important thing for people who are dealing with loss is to accept that what they are feeling is normal for their process. My goal is to help people to grieve in a healthy way that identifies coping skills and support systems.

These feelings are authentic and are in your body, so you must feel them. If grief and loss felt and expressed at the time it is felt, it is healthy and appropriate. It is best, however, to try to live in the present and not dwell on the past or go in the future with feelings of hopelessness. Grief in children and adults are different and are treateddifferently.

Loss and grief are an inevitable part of life. The loss of a loved one, friend, job or life-stye may result in painful experience. Talking through the feelings of shock, disbelief, sadness, anger, and guilt can be a tremendous help at these times. It can hasten your progress toward acceptance of the loss and the new world of possibility that awaits you. An experienced therapist of 32 years, I have guided many people through this journey and have seen the wonderful benefits of a safe, caring and encouraging relationship during times like these.

Grief is a painful and frightening process and it's important to recognize that each individual experiences grief in a different way. There is no "right way" to grieve. Some people may show a lot of emotion and others may retreat into themselves and become quiet. Alternatively, some people may become physically ill, display anger, throw themselves into a project or work, or simply lay on the couch and feel unable to do anything. Psychotherapy helps in understanding the grief process and assists in actively working through it. It also helps in developing an awareness of the strong feelings you have and an understanding of how previous experiences and loss have an impact today.
