Grief is hard. Grief is natural. Animals grieve. Grief is something we feel deep in our bodies and can be disorienting and destabilizing. Grief brings up questions about who we are, the world, the existence or goodness of God, and purpose and futility of life. Dealing with grief, especially when the loss is traumatic and unexpected, requires a slow and tender space to allow the grief to move through our body and to settle in our hearts with warmth and memory. I am here to help you grieve the loss of your loved one, experience, health , future or even your beloved pet. .

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.

No one grieves exactly the same way. While some may grieve a loss within a short amount of time, others take much longer and both are normal. Problem areas may be an extended grief process, along with other conditions, such as depression, medical conditions, or many other life's stressors and transitions. There is no set schedule towards grieving as some individuals may show pain and suffering openly whereas others hide their sorrow but may show it in ways that even they are unaware, i.e., medical conditions, struggles in every day life projects, and inability to connect with others. Psychotherapy can help; I have a great deal of experience with grief and loss of loved ones and/or pets too

Grief and loss is a part of so much more than many recognize in every day life. Most folks are familiar with the Kubler-Ross stages, but processing grief is much more than those five stages. There are tasks of mourning that can be explored and expanded with support in therapy. There are secondary losses as a result of an initial loss. Grief impacts how open we feel to new relationships in our lives. I work with clients to help them understand their responses to grief, move through their grief and feelings through expressive arts and verbal processing.

The sudden or eventual loss of a loved one can cause feelings of emptiness, uncertainty, and long-lasting depression. While death, dying, and loss are inevitable events in life, it does not lessen the mental toll it can take on individuals. Through intervention, people learn how to process grief, prepare for events that trigger depressed or anxious feelings surrounding death, dying, and loss, and learn how to reflect on the positive times one had experienced with their loved ones.

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.

My years of experience as a psychologist has confirmed that there is no particular timetable for overcoming grief whether from a death of relative, partner, friend, pet or the more symbolic losses of empty nest, end of career, decisions not to have children or marry. I provide a safe environment for patients to explore the many feelings associated with grieving on their own terms and timetable.

Loss is a natural part of life, but that doesn’t make it any less difficult an experience when we lose someone close to us. The grief we feel at that moment can surround us completely, permeating every aspect of our lives. We can sometimes feel the grief we’re experiencing in our bodies, see it change our relationships and impact our work. It filters through into our daily thoughts, our vision for the future and our remembrances of the past. Grief is a natural and necessary process, but sometimes having support can help. Story is a powerful tool; maybe one of our most powerful. Telling your personal story of loss, as an individual and a family, is an important part of the work I do. It helps you develop the positive coping skills to manage your sadness,...(view profile to read more)

Losing a loved one is hard to deal with and talking to the right person can really make a difference. Putting those messy emotions into a wrapped up package is not the way it is meant to be. The Kubler- Ross Stages of Grief will enable you to process grief if you know what to expect. Those stages are: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. These stages are not ones that are necessarily done in order when dealing with the loss of your loved one. Knowing what to expect and having the right counselor to talk with will help by giving you the tools to frame and identify this loss. It is time to start learning to live life to the fullest again. Call for a free consultation today.

Nothing in life can be more difficult and painful than dealing with loss. When we love deeply we will also grieve deeply. When we don't know how to grieve well, prolong sadness and pain can remain. The therapeutic relationship is one place where a safe place can be found to open fully the pain of loss. I also offer divorce support and grief groups where a community of suffers can join in the journey of recovery.

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.

In treating grief and loss, it is essential to facilitate a safe, respectful therapeutic interaction, in which clients are able to tell their story, process and express their feelings of grief, explore the meaning of their loss, and revise their relationship with the deceased. Additionally, using cognitive and behavioral therapy techniques enable people to develop skills for coping with the anxiety, depression, and difficult emotions that may arise as a result of the grieving process.

When someone is grieving, it is sometimes difficult to know what to say. People feel awkward and often are reduced to well-meaning platitudes. There is no magic wand to take away the feelings experienced in grief but having a place of safety and honesty can be an important step on the road to restoration. Being able to talk, weep, get angry and feel the feelings is often present in the early stages. The purpose of grief work is not about forgetting remembering with love in spite of the wounds it leaves behind.
