Although grief is an inevitable experience in life, coping with loss can be immobilizing. Because each individual is unique, finding the support you need to move through to a place of peace and acceptance is vital. I work with clients to help them process the pain of loss by addressing the physical, emotional, and spiritual issues that may be keeping them from resolving their pain and moving forward to a place of healing and acceptance. We work together to build a structure that both motivates and enables the healing process to begin and ultimately gives them the opportunity to overcome and triumph over grief.

I understand the tremendous sorrow we experience when losing someone special in our lives. Beyond our loss, grief can also leave us in isolation. Friends and family may not know what to do to help, so they do nothing, or say things that invalidate our feelings. I do not believe we move through "stages" of grief. While we may experience emotions like denial or anger, grief often manifests as a great wave-- some days it knocks us down, some days we ride it out. Do not sit alone in your grief. I will walk with you through feelings of pain and emptiness, while honoring the memory of your loved one and navigating your life in its new normal.

Very few losses are easy. Even persons who extensively prepare for loss are not ready for the intensity of how it feels when it happens. We cope with life by forming valued relationships and attachments to things. We need our attachments and loss can make it feel like we do not know how we can go on. A dilemma with loss is that reality demands that we move on, while to let go is to invite many painful and difficult feelings. I will respect both as you try to move forward through the hard feelings and the often unpredictable stages of grieving, so that you can find a way to cope, face up to, and move forward with your life.

Are you dying inside? Experiencing heartbreak that fills you with utter despair? Do friends and family keep telling you that it is time to “move on”? Do you feel that no one could possibly understand your pain? Please understand that YOUR EMOTIONS ARE NORMAL AND TO BE EXPECTED! I would like to help you recognize and understand the reactions that you may be feeling…feelings of sadness, frustration, confusion, anger, anxiety, numbness, and helplessness, all of which are normal. I will listen to you, support you, and I will not rush you. I will help you draw upon your own strengths and develop healthy coping mechanisms that will allow you to gradually recover and feel joy again.

Many losses can feel unbearable. Sometimes it may feel like you cannot survive the pain. Grieving is painful, however repressing the pain is worse. It is crucial that you express and mourn your losses. Emotional illness like depression and anxiety occur when we do not express our grief. I would like to help you work through the grieving process and begin living your life again.

Grief & loss is often felt with the death of a loved one. It can also be experienced from the loss of a relationship, your health, your job, or your home. The grieving process can be complicated. You may love someone who suffers from a significant memory loss due to Alzheimer’s, stroke or a traumatic brain injury. You may feel guilty for grieving the loss of the person you knew before the illness because you feel you should be grateful he/she is still alive. As a person loses their memory, an important part of who they are gets lost. It is appropriate for this grieving process to begin before death. I would love to support you through whatever loss you are currently experiencing.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

How we grieve depends deeply upon our own personal experiences and pain. I work to assist each individual to grasp the depth and poignancy of this ended relationship and give them the tools that they need to live without this person/creature. Once this is completed, I help them to embrace the qualities that they can make part of their own legacy.

Grief is a most natural response to a loss and the more significant the loss the more intense the grief response. Grief can be caused by all kinds of losses, e.g., relationships ending, loss of a job, loss of heath, miscarriage, death, loss of a pet, loss of friendship. Counseling can help provide support and guidance as you journey through the grief experience. It's important to know that people experience grief in different ways and there is no one right way to grieve. In the counseling relationship you will find support, comfort, strength and a space to find your way.
