Grief can be a mysterious process. Just as every organism is unique, everyone's process of grief is different. Some of us may grieve for a few days while others may take years. Some of us may find ourselves in anger or sadness due to the loss, while others may have difficulty feeling anything. All are normal and completely valid. In working with clients experiencing grief, that is the basis of my work: that all of what you are feeling and experiencing is okay and valid. My main goal is to provide a safe space for you to experience all of your emotions in result of your loss so that you can heal and find a sense of peace.

Losing a loved one or relationship can feel overwhelming. Where our days used to be enriched by someone, we are only left with their memory. The process of grieving requires support, patience, and resilience. If you find it difficult to concentrate, find pleasure in most activities, or get out of bed in the morning then therapy may be an important ally in learning to live again with loss.

There are endless opportunities for loss in this lifetime- the loss of a loved one, a relationship, a job, a pet, lost potential, loss of a part of yourself through trauma. Whether your loss is recent or long-passed, it can have crippling affects on your relationships, your sense of security, and your sense of self. The loss you experience can leave you feeling lost and the grief that accompanies this can feel insurmountable. It's easy to become fearful that this will never change, to sink into the hopelessness you feel. It seems like an impossible task, but if you're on this site you have hope. Together, you and I can build on that hope.

When loved ones pass away, it can feel as though a part of ourselves dies with them. Loss is difficult because it reminds us of our own mortality and loneliness, leaving us with the void that is the role that this person once had in our lives. I assist the grieving process by helping you find closure in your relationship with the deceased so that you can move forward in a restored and fulfilling way.

Experiencing the loss of a loved one, a job, your health, a home or country of origin, a pet or any number of other types of losses, can be very isolating, overwhelming and painful. Having a warm empathic space to process all the feelings that will arise is crucial to your getting through tough times and to your ongoing internal healing process. Together, we will gain deeper insight in to the experience of your loss(es) and develop life affirming ways to cope inside and outside the therapy room.

In addition to working with grief from the loss of a loved one, I also help people experience and heal grief that is more subtle. Early life neglect, abandonment, as well as deep regrets about unfulfilled potentials or about hurts we have caused others- can be potent forms of grief. When not recognized or experienced, loss can be expressed as irritability, restlessness, addictions, frustrations, lethargy and other physical/emotional symptoms. Identifying loss and developing the capacity to experience and express grief (pain, sadness, remorse..) is a powerful healing- and can transform our self and our body.

It can be a tremendous challenge to return to our daily life following a loss, and grieving does not have a time limit or expiration date. While our society may not be built to allow space for processing loss or grieving, in therapy with me you can expect to find all the space you need to move through your own process at your own pace. With my unwavering support, you will feel encouraged to authentically explore your grieving needs and to honor the gravity of your loss.

I find that so much of my work as a psychotherapist involves helping people to grieve their losses, whether that loss is an actual death of a beloved family member or friend, or whether it is something less tangible, but no less impactful, such as the loss that comes from realizing that they were neglected as a child or made to feel unworthy or insignificant. I believe that one of the most important things I do as a therapist is to make space for my clients to grieve their losses so that they can free up stuck energy to invest in their present lives and relationships. For me this is one of the most sacred gifts of my profession, to be able to be there for this deeply important work

There is a deep instinctual basis for our strong need for other people in our lives. This need to be connected to others goes against what were taught; that happiness comes from being at peace with being able to be alone. It's simply not true. Peace of mind and happiness comes through our connection to community, especially that one special partner. When we lose someone close to us it can be overwhelming and devastating. This can cause us to have thoughts of despair and a belief we can't go on. I can help you feel willing to healing and start living again.

Although grief and loss are universal human experiences, there are many factors which can make it difficult to process. I offer a safe space to explore all that you are going through and feeling. Expressing all your complex feelings is healthy and can be so relieving. Repressed grief can make you physically or emotionally ill. Many losses are complicated with feelings of anger, guilt or the pain and confusion of unfinished business. Sometimes, when the loss is unexpected, shock can get in the way. Personal issues around ability or willingness to feel or show vulnerability can make it hard to grieve. I have many years of experience in offering safety and support to grieving clients.

"Why can't I seem to shake this grief & loss like other people can?" you ask yourself. Chances are you have other unresolved losses that are being triggered. When you come to me, I will do an assessment, identify the unresolved losses and use Lifespan Integration or EMDR to help you get relief. On average my clients see me 10-12 sessions and are able to function again.

Grieving from a profound loss becomes a marker in time from which life may never feel the same again. From personal and professional experience I've found there is a necessary freedom to deeply grieve in the safe company of someone other than family and friends. Having a time and space devoted to getting through such a transition with a professional can ease pain and allow for the experience to integrate into living a life after loss.
