Loss and grief are painful, difficult, yet normal experiences we all go through as human beings, whether they be the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship or the loss of a dream. Sometimes loss can bring up unresolved concerns from our past, which complicates matters. If you want an experienced person to listen, feel stuck in the grieving process or worry that you have become a burden to friends and family, I can accompany you and help you move through the grieving process. By appreciating and mourning what you have lost, you become more free to move on with your life, and can emerge more wise and more open to joy.

Grieving is a very personal experience and we all experience it differently and for different amounts of time. It helps to have someone you can share your experience of confusion, numbness, loss, relief or pain with who won't judge you, or tell you to "get over it." I work with people who are grieving the loss of a spouse, friend, or family member to death, Alzheimer's, chronic pain or addiction. The loss of a child who goes to college, the service, or moves out of the area is a grievous loss that almost no one understand who hasn't experienced it. I listen and we reflect on the times you have lost people and places that were precious to you, and you move towards acceptance, life and hope.

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.

Grief, if left blocked, can be a significant drain on our energy. It is possible (and common) to move at such a fast pace through life that we are completely unaware of unprocessed feelings. When sadness, loss, and regret are identified, expressed, and released we reclaim our vitality and improve self-esteem. Another benefit of this process is improvement in our relationships. I provide a safe, comfortable environment to explore these issues.

Loss is an inevitable part of life and one of the toughest. Therapy can be extremely helpful and I have assisted many people through their losses. Some of the most common losses have included death of a family member or partner, death of a pet, loss of a relationship. While working with my clients as they experience their loss, I attempt to hone in on the uniqueness of the relationship and honor the meaning of it.

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.

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.

The experience of loss and grief is fundamental to the human condition. Often, the experience of loss and the ensuing grief are some of the most intense and painful emotional experiences we ever have. It is important to have appropriate and understanding support during the most acute phase of this process. My approach to helping my clients through the grieving process is to provide a a solid and steady presence without ever pressuring either subtly or overtly to "get over" the loss. Anger is a core component of the process and needs to be fully acknowledged before one can move forward in a meaningful way. Please call or email for further information.

I will help you meet grief with compassion. Rather than repeat unkind advice that you "move on," I will strive to help you find connection, meaning, and hope. If the circumstances of your loss were at all traumatic, I will help you make peace with painful memories. Times of loss can produce great gains in strength and love. I will help you build a life that honors your loved one and all they have meant to you.

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

Whether you are grieving over a loved one or experiencing some other form of loss, please know that you are not alone. Our society tends to expect people to recover from loss well before we are truly ready. Therapy can help you get through this difficult time so that you can begin to feel "normal" again. It is my hope for you that you gain the support you need at this time in your life.

Grief and loss is often complicated by a painful, irrational belief that you could have done something different to prevent it. Using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), clients can experience relief from the tremendous burden they carry of what they should have/could have/ought to have done differently. Through the processing of thoughts, feelings, sensations, and memories, clients feel a greater sense of relief and acceptance.

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 thereā€”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.
