Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be there—to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

My approach to Grief & Loss is for the client to be aware of the 7 stages of grief and to have them understand that their feelings about their loss are normal. Many times when someone close to us dies, we question whether not crying, crying too much, or perhaps feeling angry at the world is OK. These are all normal feelings and reactions people have to loss. Once a client understands this, they can continue to grieve without having any questions about their own actions or feelings.

We each cope with dying, death, losses, & grief in our own unique way. I can support you in making the process a much gentler one. In more complicated grief situations, I can help you find a way out of something that may seems bottomless. Specialized techniques & tools can help you move to resolve conflicts of separation/loss & return to wholeness.

Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than searing pain.

Grief & Loss is part of the rhythm of life through our growing, living, and dying. No matter what phase we are at in life, loss has been experienced, and when that loss is heightened by death or suicide of a loved one, grief can feel overwhelming and unbearable. I offer support around the pain in grief & loss so that you can heal and have the quality of life that honors the loss.

The loss of a family member or a close friend can be a traumatic event. It's common to have a mixture of feelings at this time as well as difficulty picturing how our life can go on without our loved one. In therapy it can be helpful to reminisce about our experiences with them and articulate the feelings we have, no matter what the feelings or experiences are. All while in a private and safe environment

How we grieve depends deeply upon our own personal experiences and pain. I work to assist each individual to grasp the depth and poignancy of this ended relationship and give them the tools that they need to live without this person/creature. Once this is completed, I help them to embrace the qualities that they can make part of their own legacy.

Loss and grief are natural occurrences in life. However, they can be major intrusions in the quality of our life if we are too caught up in them. They can also interfere if we are so defended against them that they limit our ability to function or impair our daily interactions with others. Sometimes, what we have lost is not a person but a job or a situation in our life that has had great meaning for us, like our self-image. That can feel devastating. Just like losing a person, these events must be grieved if we are to be able to move on. Grieving doesn’t mean forgetting or being weak. It’s a sign of love and strength. Together, we can work through the grief so you can move on.

I know grief too well, having lost significant, beautiful people in my life. Thus, I am able to help you navigate the complex waves of emotions that overtake us in grief and leave us feeling depleted and empty. 1 Corinthians 12 (Living Bible) states that, "Love never ends". Christ promised we will meet our loved ones again in eternity. This is the greatest comfort one can hold onto in time of grief and loss.

If you are suffering from moderate to severe grief and loss symptoms it is very helpful to attend therapy. Therapy will provide a healthy and safe outlet for you to express your inner emotions and thoughts. The therapist will provide a unique treatment plan and recovery goals for situation. You will also be introduced additional options including access to a psychiatrist if needed, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), meditation practices, yoga, and other holistic options.

Working through the loss of a loved one can be one of the most difficult challenges in life. My approach to this special challenge is to work with clients to process the loss of their relationship and to enter into a safe environment in which real mourning can occur. With compassion, we can come to terms with the loss and create a contest for cherishing what was.

Grief is a most natural response to a loss and the more significant the loss the more intense the grief response. Grief can be caused by all kinds of losses, e.g., relationships ending, loss of a job, loss of heath, miscarriage, death, loss of a pet, loss of friendship. Counseling can help provide support and guidance as you journey through the grief experience. It's important to know that people experience grief in different ways and there is no one right way to grieve. In the counseling relationship you will find support, comfort, strength and a space to find your way.

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.
