In compassionate surroundings, explore how you can heal in the grief process and honor those you love as an ongoing part of your story. I offer support during many different kinds of loss, knowing each person’s experience is singular and different. Individuals, couples and families go through transitions, loss and change.

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.

Although loss is an inevitable part of life, it can be debilitating. I provide a safe environment where you can process your painful feelings so that you can find satisfaction and pleasure in your life again. Many people can feel paralyzed after the loss of a loved one. Often times this paralysis is a conscious or unconscious attempt to hold on to the one that was lost. Moving forward can feel unbearable, like you are losing your loved one all over again. I can help you move forward and still feel a deep connection to your loved one so that you can go on to live a life that feels fulfilling and worth living.

Grief is a normal reaction to any type of loss. The therapeutic objective is to help bereaved individuals recover from the emotional pain caused by the loss. Therapy goals consist of: recovery from the loss to help the client feel better, choosing a healthier approach to grieving, finding new meaning for living, reducing fears and unhealthy ways for dealing with the loss, and having the ability to enjoy memories and connecting to the deceased rather than resorting to isolation/depression. My therapeutic approach consists of educating about the stages of loss, working on issues complicating the grief process, validating emotions and teaching better coping mechanisms to handle the loss.

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.

Losing someone significant in your life can turn your world upside down. Sometimes we need a space to pause, reflect, regroup, and express the often-conflicting thoughts and feelings that have become overwhelming. In order to make sense of loss and move forward, we must "grieve well" by honoring our own very real and difficult feelings, as well as who or what we have lost. I will join you as you process your experience and assist in integrating the past, present and future during this very difficult time.

I cannot make your grief disappear, though I sure wish I could. But I can help you learn to live with your loss, so that day by day you can begin to rebuild, move forward, and of course, honor what you have lost. Many clients come to me with a goal of making the grief go away; they want to fast forward to where they don't feel the pain anymore. Having worked with trauma survivors for so long (and your loss is traumatic for you) I know this approach does not work. Those emotions just get buried and they always come back. In therapy you will learn how to create a safe space to grieve without feeling overwhelmed. You will learn how to find new meaning from your experiences and find peace.

Grief and loss are a part of the human experience. We all go through it at times in our lives. It can be the loss of a loved one, loss of a job, loss of a pet, divorce, separation, etc. When the feelings of grief and loss become so great that we feel we need help to cope, sometimes psychotherapy is the answer. As your therapist, I will provide a trusting and secure environment allowing you to explore your thoughts and feelings around the loss or losses you have experienced. I will help you build support for yourself and teach coping skills to help you get through this very difficult time. I believe that when grief and loss are dealt with in a healthy way, the outcome is strength and courage.

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences a person goes through. It is so important to be able to honor the relationship in a space where one can speak freely, tell stories, and attribute meaning to the connection. I am interested in exploring the impact and legacies of significant relationships and how clients can integrate them into their current lives.

Losing someone or something close to you is often the most difficult event that people face in their lives. Often these events happen unexpectedly which adds to the confusion and hurt. Mourning a loss is a process that benefits from guidance from a trained professional. I can help you understand loss, mourn, and ultimately move through the pain while honoring and remembering who or what was lost.

I am very mindful of the pain that clients are experiencing when they have lost a loved one, or are experiencing grief over upcoming loss of a person or of a dream that they have had for their life. The loss of a relationship produces feelings of grief that can be difficult to manage and work through. I help patients focus on the feelings that surround "grief": anger, denial, depression, guilt that they may be burdened by, etc. I help them develop new coping skills so they can move toward acceptance of the loss at the same time as they rebuild hope for themselves in this new reality without the person or relationship they have lost. Together with the client we redefine a hopeful future.

I have lost many loved ones and can ID the stages very quickly to help. I use various methods depending on the person. I believe groups are good for grief and encourage support networks. Talking to a Therapist at this time helps a great deal to minimize the grief. I believe that love never dies and one should be able to remember those with love and compassion. Time helps! Multiple losses are the hardest to deal with and need a counselor to start the healing process. Come in and talk! I have a protocol which is meaningful to anyone that has lost a loved one that works.
