Although loss is an inevitable part of life, it can be debilitating. I provide a safe environment where you can process your painful feelings so that you can find satisfaction and pleasure in your life again. Many people can feel paralyzed after the loss of a loved one. Often times this paralysis is a conscious or unconscious attempt to hold on to the one that was lost. Moving forward can feel unbearable, like you are losing your loved one all over again. I can help you move forward and still feel a deep connection to your loved one so that you can go on to live a life that feels fulfilling and worth living.

I address grief and loss issues with understanding, validation, and empathy. My deep respect for the fact that it takes time to sufficiently mourn and grieve the loss of what once was is key in working with clients who experience grief and loss. We are all unique, and we grieve in ways that may look different than other's ways. There is no wrong way to experience loss! I model compassion and patience, hoping that in time my clients can experience self-compassion and allow themselves to feel the depths of their feelings without excess shame or self-judgment. I believe that social and cultural factors may also play a role in our grieving process, so I explore those factors in therapy as well.

While we all experience loss in our lives, some losses seem to completely knock our feet out from under us, leading to anxiety, depression, fears, guilt and sometimes, at its worst, causing us to question whether we want to go on. I will help you by compassionately and supportively accompanying you through the process of identifying, expressing, and recovering from the painful feelings you are experiencing. While some losses are never fully recovered from, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and it is possible to rediscover a sense of meaning, peace, and joy after loss.

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?

No one grieves exactly the same way. While some may grieve a loss within a short amount of time, others take much longer and both are normal. Problem areas may be an extended grief process, along with other conditions, such as depression, medical conditions, or many other life's stressors and transitions. There is no set schedule towards grieving as some individuals may show pain and suffering openly whereas others hide their sorrow but may show it in ways that even they are unaware, i.e., medical conditions, struggles in every day life projects, and inability to connect with others. Psychotherapy can help; I have a great deal of experience with grief and loss of loved ones and/or pets too

Grief is a reaction to any form of loss. Whether that is of a loved one, a relationship, pet, job or personal identity, therapy can help. Feelings can range from deep sadness to anger, and each person's experience is unique. Everyone grieves in their own way and in their own time. Therapy is an effective way to learn to cope with the stressors associated with the loss and to manage symptoms. Working through the stages of grief in a supportive and accepting therapy environment can help you to heal and enable more happiness in your life.

We have all experienced loss in our lives, whether we lose a pet as a child or a parent, spouse or someone close to us. Loss is part of being human and with loss comes grief. Many physicians and other professionals minimize the impact of loss and grief but it is one of the most important human emotions and must be allowed to exist for as long as necessary. The 5 stages of depression come into play with grief and loss: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance. When grief becomes depression, additional support is necessary. My work with grief and loss normalizes the impact of this powerful emotion and supports the person who struggles with this most human of feelings.

Grief could at times make us feel less than whole, as if something is there, and yet missing. In the personal journey of grief, our approach is to find ways in which to honor the experience, the people, and the bonds once shared. Our approach to therapy is client-centered, meaning that it is individually-tailored to your needs within a supportive environment to help you honor that experience, find strength, and move through it as best you can. In doing so, we support a healthy balance of mental, emotional and behavioral activities to help you stay connected with yourself and your surroundings during experiences of loss.

Losing a person, relationship or beloved companion animal can leave you feeling alone, lost and scared. I can help you give voice to your emotions and begin to integrate the grief into your life in a healthy way. It's normal to grieve deeply when we love deeply. Honoring those feelings is an important part of walking the path of healing. Therapy offers those experiencing the tidal wave of emotions that are often present after a loss the opportunity to process the past, present and future in a safe, non-judgmental environment. I work together to process the loss, discuss stages of grief & begin working towards deeper healing & acceptance. We never fully "get over" the losses in our lives, but we learn how to accept them & move towards a healthier view of...(view profile to read more)
