Losing someone you love is one of the biggest challenges in life, especially if it was unexpected. There can be trauma associated with the loss that can be disturbing. My approach to grief and loss is to allow expression of all the feelings involved in losing a loved one. It can be a confusing time with a mixture of shock, sadness, anger, fear, and hopelessness. Finding ways to express unresolved feelings through talking and letter writing can be helpful. What I also offer that is unique are mind/body therapies such as EMDR that help process and release distressing or stuck feelings. You can feel more at peace and accepting with the help of these techniques.

People experience many different kinds of grief and loss, from the death of a friend or family member (including pets) to loosing a job or one's health. Therapy for grief and loss can help you through a very difficult and painful transition. Grief is a normal reaction to loss, and allowing yourself to spend time grieving instead of pushing down the feelings and emotions that ought to be expressed can help you to manage through this time in the best way possible. I provide a safe and caring place and a supportive therapeutic relationship as you work through your experience and manage the wide range of emotions you may feel.

I have experience working with individuals, children, and families as they navigate life after the death of a loved one. As a counselor at San Diego Hospice, I came to understand that grief can be a lonely and sometimes complicated process. At times the loss does not seem real, it can be scary and overwhelming to feel the pain it brings, and finding ways to "move on" can be daunting. I would be honored to assist you in this journey and help guide the way towards embracing life again.

There are many forms of loss that can significantly impact a person's life (i.e. losing a job, friendship, home, death of a loved one, giving up a destructive habit or addiction). The pain that accompanies grief and loss can be so overwhelming that it takes all of our will power just to get through the day. Depending on the nature of the loss, it can feel like purpose and passion for living are missing. I assist clients in a 3 step process which involves acceptance of the loss, finding meaning to the pain they are experiencing, and developing goals to help the client continue productively on their life journey.

The experience of grief and loss, while expected at various life stages, can result in physical pain, and the emergence of symptoms that lead to experiencing a slow downward spiral in overall wellbeing, and perhaps desire to withdrawal from personal and professional commitments. Many clients seek compassionate and sensitive guidance to navigate through the ups and downs of any number of losses, ranging from diminishing health, to ending a relationship, or other life transition. Together, clients and I develop a transformative plan to stabilize, heal, gain insight and to enhance their proficiency to improve the strength needed to reconstitute their skills and hopes for today and the future.

Sooner or later you will lose someone you love or something that is important to you. It happens to all of us and it’s easy to become overwhelmed and lose perspective in such times. There is a process that guides you through grief and brings you to the other side whole. I offer to guide you through the process at your pace and in your way so you will have your time to grieve with comfort and perspective and emerge stronger having endured the experience.

Grief and loss are a part of life yet can feel overwhelming! If you are suffering from illness, the death of a loved one, loss of a job or relationship, or going through life transitions, therapy can assist in your healing. Grief can be isolating. Individuals, couples, and families can learn to stay connected rather than be torn apart during these difficult times. Learning to cope with your situation in an accepting atmosphere can help you develop a renewed sense of hope and renewed connection, first to yourself and then to significant others. You do not need to go through your pain alone!

All loss is grief. Grief is a normal response to loosing anything: a loved one, a home, a job, a relationship. Grief is a journey. Some grief can be more complicated and more difficult journey to walk through alone. Grief is as unique to each person as is their they are. No two people will grieve the same, nor should they. Thus, my therapeutic approach to grief therapy is uniquely patterned to the individual and their personal experience. There are a variety of therapeutic approaches that can be used. I will find what works best for you.

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.

When you suffer the loss of a loved one, you certainly will experience great sorrow. But it is also possible that you may experience symptoms similar to clinical depression. It is normal for these symptoms to last for days. But if they continue at a significant level for a week or more, you may need extra support. Grief counseling can be of benefit. I will help you move through the grief process in a constructive and purposeful way. We will engage you in specific interventions that honor your loss, and help you find the meaning in the painful reality you experience. Taking time for purposeful grieving, you learn to re-engage in your normal life, minimizing the risk of clinical depression.
