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.

Grief can be a difficulty beast to manage, a beast which can surface at any moment without warning and often comes in waves. When I’ve been grieving I’ve felt like I was in an emotional pong ball. With the aid of tools like EMDR CBT and guided visualizations I can help you to heal and leave the pain, loss, and grief in the past while holding on to the happy memories. Additionally, I can provide tools, coping skills, and other resources to help you manage this particular issue.

Grief & Loss: As an experience psychologist, I help people struggling with deep sorrow, pain of loss, guilt, denial, anger, and coping with tragedy process these emotions and experiences in a healthy way. If not handled properly, people can get stuck in 'complicated grief,' meaning that feelings of loss/grief do not improve over time. Through specific interventions, I can help a person move through these painful experiences and emotions to the other side and to eventual acceptance.

Grief can be so painful it is makes you feel like you can barely breath. The loss can be fresh and new and completely envelop you. Sometimes it makes you feel like you are walking through the fog and barely know where you are going. Or it can be an older and more long-standing loss, a soft dull pain in your heart. You can be mourning the loss of a loved one, a job, a home, a beloved pet. It hurts. And with support in a safe, nurturing environment, you can get through it. I can help you walk through your grief in a warm, supportive way, providing you a safe place to mourn. Grief has no time-frame and there is no "right way" to mourn. I will honor you and your individuality. You are not alone
