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.

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.

Whether you are grieving over a loved one or experiencing some other form of loss, please know that you are not alone. Our society tends to expect people to recover from loss well before we are truly ready. Therapy can help you get through this difficult time so that you can begin to feel "normal" again. It is my hope for you that you gain the support you need at this time in your life.

Experiencing a significant loss in one's life can be an overwhelming and confusing time. I provide a warm and inviting environment so each person can feel comfortable in talking about and making sense of the different emotions and thoughts one may have. By using a compassionate and supportive approach, I help the person better understand the different phases of grief and learn effective ways to manage feelings of sadness and discomfort.

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.

Grief and loss can take many forms in our lives. If you have lost a loved one to death, divorce, addiction or estrangement, the pain can be intense and disorienting. Other forms of loss such as disability, loss of health, infertility, infidelity, loss of faith or the loss of a lifelong dream can also leave us reeling and grieving. Loss is very personal. While others may not understand what you're going through, I will respect your experience and walk through it with you for as long as it takes.

Loss is painful. Some losses hurt, but we're able to move past them. Some losses hit harder and we can get stuck in the sadness or anger or a sense of un-reality. We all experience loss during our lives, and all losses affect our sense of self to some degree. If you are struggling with grief that has knocked you off balance, together we can honor what you lost and discover ways for you to continue forward with a new reality.

Sadly, loss is an integral part of life; none of us is immune. Yet, when we're in it, we can feel so alone during the grieving and bereavement process. I offer a safe place to explore the meaning behind the grief and the thoughts and feelings that are sacred to you as you go through this challenging life transition. It is my goal to assist you as you honor the loss of a person, relationship, pet, or a stage in life.

Clinical Psychologist

Loss and grief are painful, difficult, yet normal experiences we all go through as human beings, whether they be the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship or the loss of a dream. Sometimes loss can bring up unresolved concerns from our past, which complicates matters. If you want an experienced person to listen, feel stuck in the grieving process or worry that you have become a burden to friends and family, I can accompany you and help you move through the grieving process. By appreciating and mourning what you have lost, you become more free to move on with your life, and can emerge more wise and more open to joy.

Grief Counselor

Verna Nelson, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Grieving is a very personal experience and we all experience it differently and for different amounts of time. It helps to have someone you can share your experience of confusion, numbness, loss, relief or pain with who won't judge you, or tell you to "get over it." I work with people who are grieving the loss of a spouse, friend, or family member to death, Alzheimer's, chronic pain or addiction. The loss of a child who goes to college, the service, or moves out of the area is a grievous loss that almost no one understand who hasn't experienced it. I listen and we reflect on the times you have lost people and places that were precious to you, and you move towards acceptance, life and hope.

I will help you meet grief with compassion. Rather than repeat unkind advice that you "move on," I will strive to help you find connection, meaning, and hope. If the circumstances of your loss were at all traumatic, I will help you make peace with painful memories. Times of loss can produce great gains in strength and love. I will help you build a life that honors your loved one and all they have meant to you.

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.

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.
