Grief is a natural response to loss and it takes many forms. Everyone grieves differently and contrary to popular belief, there is no set amount of time grief is "supposed to last." I acknowledge a client's unique response to grief in a sensitive and compassionate way while letting him/her know that his/her response is normal. I help clients recognize and understand the wide range of feelings that come with loss. I assist clients in developing healthy coping strategies based on their innate strengths.

Experiences of grief for someone important but not central to one's life can move towards healing as feelings are freely expressed and the importance of the relationship is explored. More acute grief for the loss of someone central to one's life involves a more extended process of expressing the many different emotions that emerge, sometimes using art supplies to express feelings not ready for words. Reflection on the meaning this person had in your life and the the many losses involved can eventually lead to thoughts about how one can go on, using the wisdom gleaned from the grief process. A major grief never goes away entirely but the precious memories are sustaining.

When someone we love passes, there are no words to describe our hurt. We may experience pain and alienation. Our world may seem shattered and without meaning. Our life may feel lifeless and dull. While there are no predictable responses to grief, these are some typical responses: denial, anger, confusion, depression, and eventually acceptance. Grief is most challenging when it gets complicated. Other issues can be entangled with our loss. Our grieving process can get stuck. When we are grieving, we most need sensitivity, patience, understanding, kindness, and caring.

Loss is part of life. Loss of a loved one, of a life as we knew it through illness, divorce, or unemployment. It is as natural as changing seasons. Yet it still causes pain and suffering. Sometimes we get stuck in grief. I often start therapy by asking: would your loved one want you to be in pain for the rest of your life. Nobody ever said: yes. Acknowledging that there is life after loss is the first step to recovery. After that we will talk about your sadness, grief, sometimes guilt, sometimes resentment, sometimes abandonment. All these feelings need to be respected, processed and slowly you will start noticing that the sun is still shinning and there is a new challenge in front of you

The experience of loss and grief is fundamental to the human condition. Often, the experience of loss and the ensuing grief are some of the most intense and painful emotional experiences we ever have. It is important to have appropriate and understanding support during the most acute phase of this process. My approach to helping my clients through the grieving process is to provide a a solid and steady presence without ever pressuring either subtly or overtly to "get over" the loss. Anger is a core component of the process and needs to be fully acknowledged before one can move forward in a meaningful way. Please call or email for further information.

Losing a loved one, whether through unexpected or anticipated circumstances, is always traumatic and can be one of the most stressful events in a person’s life. Although grieving is a natural human reaction to a loss it can be overwhelming. In therapy I provide a safe place were we can process those feelings together and explore which meaning the loss you experienced will receive in your life.

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.

Grief and Loss come in many forms and symptoms can sometimes mimic other issues like depression/anxiety. We can carry grief about many things; the relationships we desperately longed for with our parent, children, partners that never materialized, the betrayal of our bodies as we age or deal with disability, loss of a loved one, pet, or dream. Working through grief is its own very personal journey. My experience working with Bereaved families with Hospice and my own personal losses help inform my approach with clients to deal with their own grief and mourning.

At some stage the bereaved move to a position of acceptance at which point, life begins to feel more normal again. Grief counseling helps process the feelings of loss associated with grief. If you are experiencing grief or loss, counseling can help you process it in a more healthy way. As a bereavement counselor, I offer you a space to explore your feelings in confidential and safe space. I can help you through the grieving process to process the painful emotions, to accept the loss, to make relevant adjustments and to help discover productive coping mechanisms.

During times of grief and loss one needs a support network to help them get through the pain and suffering of the loss of a loved one. People often isolate instead, for fear perhaps of burdening others, or upsetting others more by talking about it, or because they feel others won't relate or understand their pain. As a result, they find themselves alone with their feelings at a time when they most need support. Grief counseling and support can help you better understand your personal grieving process while providing a safe place to heal.

Grief and loss issues can stem from recent losses, or ones from decades past. They can feel overwhelming to deal with because of the intensity of emotion. However, having a safe environment to work through these issues at a pace that you are comfortable with is the best way to begin that journey. With grief, as with so many other things in life, the only way around the feelings are through them. I have experience working with individual and leading grief groups. I understand how grief manifests differently for different people, and will help you on your journey of healing. Please call me to discuss further and to determine if you'd like to schedule an appointment.

Grief, if left blocked, can be a significant drain on our energy. It is possible (and common) to move at such a fast pace through life that we are completely unaware of unprocessed feelings. When sadness, loss, and regret are identified, expressed, and released we reclaim our vitality and improve self-esteem. Another benefit of this process is improvement in our relationships. I provide a safe, comfortable environment to explore these issues.
