Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be there—to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

Loss is painful. Some losses hurt, but we're able to move past them. Some losses hit harder and we can get stuck in the sadness or anger or a sense of un-reality. We all experience loss during our lives, and all losses affect our sense of self to some degree. If you are struggling with grief that has knocked you off balance, together we can honor what you lost and discover ways for you to continue forward with a new reality.

The experience of grief and loss, while expected at various life stages, can result in physical pain, and the emergence of symptoms that lead to experiencing a slow downward spiral in overall wellbeing, and perhaps desire to withdrawal from personal and professional commitments. Many clients seek compassionate and sensitive guidance to navigate through the ups and downs of any number of losses, ranging from diminishing health, to ending a relationship, or other life transition. Together, clients and I develop a transformative plan to stabilize, heal, gain insight and to enhance their proficiency to improve the strength needed to reconstitute their skills and hopes for today and the future.

When someone we love passes, there are no words to describe our hurt. We may experience pain and alienation. Our world may seem shattered and without meaning. Our life may feel lifeless and dull. While there are no predictable responses to grief, these are some typical responses: denial, anger, confusion, depression, and eventually acceptance. Grief is most challenging when it gets complicated. Other issues can be entangled with our loss. Our grieving process can get stuck. When we are grieving, we most need sensitivity, patience, understanding, kindness, and caring.

Loss is part of life. Loss of a loved one, of a life as we knew it through illness, divorce, or unemployment. It is as natural as changing seasons. Yet it still causes pain and suffering. Sometimes we get stuck in grief. I often start therapy by asking: would your loved one want you to be in pain for the rest of your life. Nobody ever said: yes. Acknowledging that there is life after loss is the first step to recovery. After that we will talk about your sadness, grief, sometimes guilt, sometimes resentment, sometimes abandonment. All these feelings need to be respected, processed and slowly you will start noticing that the sun is still shinning and there is a new challenge in front of you

Grief and Loss come in many forms and symptoms can sometimes mimic other issues like depression/anxiety. We can carry grief about many things; the relationships we desperately longed for with our parent, children, partners that never materialized, the betrayal of our bodies as we age or deal with disability, loss of a loved one, pet, or dream. Working through grief is its own very personal journey. My experience working with Bereaved families with Hospice and my own personal losses help inform my approach with clients to deal with their own grief and mourning.

There is no timeline for people to recover from grief. Grief can be complicated, most notably accompanied by depression, or by the person’s level of dependency on the departed. I will guide the patient into the basic foundation of their grief, encourage clients to explore their reaction to grief, their symptoms and their goals. I will attempt to redirect the patient’s goals from inward-directed goals (making themselves feel better) to outward-directed goals (goals related to outside events).I will provide the client with coping mechanisms that reduce feelings of blame and guilt.

When we encounter real tragedy in our lives, few of us have readily available tools for the ongoing pain that accompanies mourning, grieving, and loss. Tapping into authentic moments of grief can help us move beyond the pain and expand our idea of who we are as we grieve, yet doing this alone can be overwhelming and even scary at times. Grief work is critical to healing, and having a compassionate and seasoned guide to support the journey can be the means to feel, grow, learn, and ultimately heal from the grief of loss. Please know that you do not have to suffer alone. Grief can open many old wounds and you so deserve not to have to do this alone. I'm here, I can help, and I care.

Grief and loss issues can stem from recent losses, or ones from decades past. They can feel overwhelming to deal with because of the intensity of emotion. However, having a safe environment to work through these issues at a pace that you are comfortable with is the best way to begin that journey. With grief, as with so many other things in life, the only way around the feelings are through them. I have experience working with individual and leading grief groups. I understand how grief manifests differently for different people, and will help you on your journey of healing. Please call me to discuss further and to determine if you'd like to schedule an appointment.

During times of grief and loss one needs a support network to help them get through the pain and suffering of the loss of a loved one. People often isolate instead, for fear perhaps of burdening others, or upsetting others more by talking about it, or because they feel others won't relate or understand their pain. As a result, they find themselves alone with their feelings at a time when they most need support. Grief counseling and support can help you better understand your personal grieving process while providing a safe place to heal.

I know personally how painful grief and loss can be. Also, my studies and my work at Hospice, counseling people in grief, showed me the many facets of this journey. Whether a loved one has passed, or you are going through divorce, change of home or career, a major loss presents big challenges. You may very well face day to day difficulties like low energy, foggy thinking, overwhelming feelings, physical pain, and changing relationships. I can help you navigate these challenging days and weeks and months. Your journey through your grieving can ultimately be a blessing in your growth, self understanding, and in the expansion of your loving heart.
