Grief and loss are central to many if not all psychological conditions, in that change and transformation are natural ongoing processes. Coming to terms with this continual change is what positive adjustment entails. Experiencing a “broken heart” can feel like the end of the world and pitch us into despair. But facing loss finally allows us to hatch into a larger true identity. I utilize several creative processing modalities, including Art Therapy, EMDR, and Hypnotherapy to access and clarify appropriate symbols and metaphors which allow this hatching to occur.

From death of a loved one to loss of a significant relationship, processing loss is a painful and lonely journey...especially done alone. Often, one of the aspects of loss is that there is compounding guilt for one's feelings. Normalizing and supporting my client's experience during a wrenching time is something I enjoy. The length of the process varies greatly from person to person, but support is paramount.

Each experience of grief is unique, complex, and personal, and I will tailor treatment to meet your specific needs. I will help you find different ways to maintain healthy connections with the deceased through memory, reflection, ritual, or dialogue about the deceased and with the deceased. I will help you view your grief and loss with curiosity and without judgment, in an effort to understand and heal. I can help you recognize and access your inner strength, autonomy, and capacity to step back into life after loss.

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.

I tell my clients that everyone grieves in their own, unique way, and that there is no "right way" to grieve. Sooner or later, we all face major losses of loved ones, and the grief involved can feel devastating. I provide loving support and help my clients connect with grief and loss support groups and other supports. We explore what the loss means for my client and ways to honor the memories of the loved one. We also explore and process unfinished, incomplete, or difficult losses that involve anger, shame, resentment, and deep disappointment.

Grief is tough to handle alone. You have tried everything you can think of and the sadness still continues. Grief can affect your life and make it hard to go on day to day. Suffering loss alone is not necessary. There is a way to feel better and I would love to help you. You might think you "should be over this" and you are not. How you are feeling now is OK. I would love to help you feel better, give me a call at 916-847-8053 today to schedule an appointment.

Grieving is a process that is unique and different for each individual. Sometimes we put it off because we are afraid that once we face it, it will never end! Grieving, while difficult, can be a sacred time to reflect, accept, and recover. You can start healing and moving forward. I can help you deal with the painful losses you've experienced. Although loss cannot be reversed, learning how to accept and cope with grief can be tremendously empowering. I will support you in a gentle, sensitive manner as we honor your experience and work toward peaceful resolution of your pain.

Grief Counselor

Licensed Marriage, Family, Individual Therapist

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.

When we are grieving, we need time and space to experience and process our feelings, some of which may be very intense. Often, people feel very alone or weighed down by the pain of their loss. I offer a warm, supportive environment where clients can feel safe to openly express their grief and to honor the memory of their loved one, while they start to heal and move forward in their own life.

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.

Grief Counselor

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.

Grief counseling becomes necessary when a person is so disabled by their grief, overwhelmed by loss to the extent that their normal coping processes are disabled or shut down. Grief counseling facilitates expression of emotion and thought about the loss, including sadness, anxiety, anger, loneliness, guilt, relief, isolation, confusion, or numbness. Often people feel disorganized, tired, have trouble concentrating, sleep poorly and have vivid dreams, and experience change in appetite. These too are addressed in my grief and loss counseling sessions.
