When a person looses a loved one, life can become very, very dark. I understand, and I can help. Sometimes it is not a death. Sometimes it is the loss of a relationship, an estranged relationship, a divorce. Sometimes it is the loss of health or a career. But it is always something that is very dear to the person, and losing that something causes the person's world to fall apart. I know what it is like and I can help them navigate through the darkness, and help them find a new way of life.

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.

I address grief and loss issues with understanding, validation, and empathy. My deep respect for the fact that it takes time to sufficiently mourn and grieve the loss of what once was is key in working with clients who experience grief and loss. We are all unique, and we grieve in ways that may look different than other's ways. There is no wrong way to experience loss! I model compassion and patience, hoping that in time my clients can experience self-compassion and allow themselves to feel the depths of their feelings without excess shame or self-judgment. I believe that social and cultural factors may also play a role in our grieving process, so I explore those factors in therapy as well.

Among the benefits of grief counseling are: normalizing (grief feels strange but it is universal); making meaning (coming to terms with our mortality); and the opportunity to express feelings, safely and in full, about the person who has died. When a client suffers a loss during or prior to treatment, I communicate the message that each of us is entitled to a grief process of our own, with its own tempo, mood, and meaning, all of which fluctuate, often in complex ways. The support of an empathic person can help you walk the painful path that grief puts before you, a path which leads out of grief and back to life.

Grief and loss come in many forms and alternate to what you may read elsewhere online, the healing process is not linear nor is it fixed to a set period of time. Grief includes the death of a loved one or even the loss of something intangible - a job, a relationship, a belief. I work with individuals and couples to mourn these losses in their own time and in their own way.

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.

When we try to run away from grief, we may be able to push it down temporarily, however there becomes a time for “the straw that broke the camel’s back.” Grief layers with loss. So when we attempt to run away from the grief we are actually intensifying our pain and we tend to deaden a part of us in the process. When we delay grief, which is common to many individuals, we narrow our options in life. We begin to survive rather than fully live. We must complete our psychological business with the past before we can move on and form new attachments and live life fully. Accepting losses means facing the real or the threatened losses of attachment, safety, childhood innocence and spontaneity, trust. We do not recognize the ability to play, to make...(view profile to read more)

Have you lost a loved one? Had a divorce? Laid off from your job? There are many ways we experience loss, and it often hampers the way you live life. Come learn how to process and move on--in a healthy, natural way that honors your loss . . . and honors you. At CCRG, you will learn why you're feeling this way, and often, you'll learn WHAT you're feeling--it's sometimes confusing to identify just what's going on because you may have never felt these things before. We understand, and we want to help you along.

Grief and loss is one of the more sensitive subjects that makes its way through a therapists office. Grief and loss can also occur in anyone at any time as a result of any type of loss. When processing grief and loss, empathy is an essential component of the therapeutic process. Grief and loss can also impact one’s sexual wants, needs, and desires. It is essential that grief and loss is thoroughly processed and given the necessary space within one’s life. I appreciate you trusting your therapeutic needs with me.
