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 is a natural response to loss. You may associate it with the death of a loved one- and that type of loss does often cause the most intense emotions. But any loss can cause grief, including: a relationship breakup, loss of health, losing a job, loss of financial stability, a miscarriage, death of a pet, loss of safety after trauma, a loved one's serious illness Please note that there is no "normal" timetable for grieving. As an experienced therapist, I can help you work through your intense emotions and overcome obstacles to your grieving.

I help people struggling with grief and loss issues by creating a safe, supportive environment for them to talk about what has happened to them. People tend to experience mental health problems when they are unable or do not allow themselves to experience their emotions surrounding grief and loss. Often times people in our lives try to be supportive but do not know how, so people end up telling us that there is a certain way to grieve or that we need to "just get over it". Everybody has their own grieving process. It is my job to help you open up to your emotions in a way that does not feel like they are going to swallow you whole, and to help you grieve in your own way and in your own time.

As someone who has dealt with grief and loss in my own life, I am able to hold space for the many different experiences and emotions that grief can express itself as. Sometimes we just need someone to witness our experience. In our culture, we rush grief. It can be a slow process, and I respect that. Additionally, I often use art therapy in grief work as it helps us express what we cannot find the words for.

I believe we are meant to love. But as loving human beings, the loss of important people in our lives is one of our most difficult challenges. Let me help you move through your grief, staying gently with you as you mourn. Grief has it's own timeline, with healing occurring quietly and inconsistently. Over time and with support, you will begin to experience hope, and even joy again.

Life is full of many losses, the death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job, illness, loss of home, loss of friendships. With loss comes grief .We may not grieve as hard or as much when moving to a new home as we do when we have lost a loved one but we do still grieve. When we grieve we go through many stages, such as denial, anger, sadness, and acceptance. This process is unique to each individual and is unique to the kind of loss experienced. In therapy I will support you as you process often times very painful feelings related to your loss. Therapy will give you the support you deserve and in your own time you will be able to move forward in your own life.

Grief can occur from losing a relationship, losing a loved one or many other transitions or losses. Life seems to go on around you, but the hurt and sadness can take a long time to recover from. Family can only help for so long. Getting professional help is a step toward the beginnings of recovery. Overcoming grief is about processing your emotions, honoring the loss and creating small steps to a new life. Timing is individual and not everyone grieves in the same way. I would be honored to help you start feeling better.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

Loss is like an emotional injury that requires grief to heal. There is a natural healing process that occurs, but sometimes our grief does not resolve and therapy can help support you during the natural process of healing or help when healing is not progressing. I will help you accept the reality of the loss, have a safe place to experience and understand the pain of grief, and adjust to the loss and all that it requires to create a "new normal." Moving forward means finding meaning in life in spite of the loss and also holding on to and remembering the parts of the loss that held joy.

Most of us are familiar with Elizabeth Kubler Ross' model of grief with the 5 stages. While this is helpful information, this model does not fit everyone. I practice from the Winslade and Hedtke model of grief which practices "Remembering". I find that using this model or this model in conjunction with the 5 stage grief model is helpful to helping clients explore loss and grief in finding a pathway forward that honors their own experiences.
