It is not a coincidence that losing a loved one feels like losing part of ourselves: I believe that is exactly what is happening. The people (or animals) that are closest to us help to make us the people we are. Whether through the end of a relationship, death, or moving away, the loss of someone dear to us presents a profound shift in our own life story, like a sudden storm on a calm sea. How do we navigate that? Do we sail on? Change direction? How do we even know where to begin?

Clients will experience psychological relief from their pain when they are able to participate in grief and loss counseling. Clients will also be able to properly grieve people and events in their life they were not able to before. My hope is that through therapy there will be freedom from the emotional distress they have been tolerating. I also hope that clients will be able to remain connected in a health way to those they have lost.

I know grief too well, having lost significant, beautiful people in my life. Thus, I am able to help you navigate the complex waves of emotions that overtake us in grief and leave us feeling depleted and empty. 1 Corinthians 12 (Living Bible) states that, "Love never ends". Christ promised we will meet our loved ones again in eternity. This is the greatest comfort one can hold onto in time of grief and loss.

We experience grief not only when someone we love dies, but also when we experience any other loss like an illness, a child who is disabled, the end of a career or job, a break up, a change in our identity or the identity of someone we love, etc. To successfully cope with grief we need support and compassion and information about what to expect. One of our clinicians can provide all 3 of these necessary components to assist you with coping with your grief.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

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.

Everyone's story of grief and loss is unique. There is no such thing as the right way to grieve or the appropriate amount of time to grieve. Most everything people tend to say about grieving and loss is addressing their own discomfort. Grieving does not have to be only about enduring and getting through the pain of loss, it can actually bring forth new meanings, a deeper sense of self and greater connections.

When we lose we anything we love, whether it be a person, a thing, a life situation or something we relied on, two things need to happen in therapy. First, we need a place to express the sadness of what we have lost. I give clients the safety, support, and guidance to the feel powerful emotions that come with any significant loss in life. Secondly, everything significant to us has a “dream” attached to it. A vision of what it means to us in the present and a view of what it will mean to us in the future. When we lose that thing, we lose the dream. Grief work is about grieving the actual loss and also dealing with the dream that went along with it. I know how to help clients with both of t....

Marriage and Family Therapist

I have worked with victims of trauma and abuse for over 15 years. I have been trained on many different methods to helping a client through their trauma so that they can begin living without PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) symptoms. Many people come to therapy because of the nightmares, trouble sleeping, having flashbacks, and having intimacy issues because they cannot let their guard down. For 10 years I worked using strictly a “person centered” approach to therapy. That means that I would let the survivor tell their story in their own way and not really guide them much. My main job was to make sure they felt safe and figured out ways to be safe. This process took a very long time, but it ....

Unfortunately, grief and loss are inevitable in life and sometimes we need guidance to process all that we’re feeling. My approach is to validate their loss and allow them to speak openly about it and then help them find healthy connections to their loved ones through memories. So much of the time when there is a loss, all people hear is “time heals all wounds.” That is rarely helpful in getting your life back on track because that implies you need to wait awhile before feeling better! Through our work, you will slowly learn to adjust to the new reality of your life without your loved one. This might require incorporating a new routine or even adopting a new sense of identity.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

Grief can hit you like a ton of bricks or creep up on you day by day. Its course is unpredictable and its pace needs to be honored. Most of all clients who have experienced grief and loss come to counseling needing a safe, accepting space in which they can express all of their feelings. They need to know that their counselor can handle the full range of those feelings--despair, anger, terror, gratitude, love--whatever is coming up on any given day. They need not to be pushed but to be honored as they move through life's greatest challenge.

Grief and loss are both highly individual and intensely personal. Although we all experience grief and loss in different forms (death and non death), nothing describes the pain. Together we will create tools and awareness to process these painful life bereavements.
