At some point in our lives, most of us will experience grief following the loss of a loved one. While everyone experiences grief in their own unique way, grief is a major stressor that can often be a very isolating experience. Western culture tends to deal with grief on a timetable that doesn't allow most individuals adequate time to process their loss. I assist clients by helping find ways to regain a sense of control over their lives as well as adapting to life without their loved one. Working out what you need to do to help yourself during this time is important - I can help.

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.

Have you lost a loved one? Had a divorce? Laid off from your job? There are many ways we experience loss, and it often hampers the way you live life. Come learn how to process and move on--in a healthy, natural way that honors your loss . . . and honors you. At CCRG, you will learn why you're feeling this way, and often, you'll learn WHAT you're feeling--it's sometimes confusing to identify just what's going on because you may have never felt these things before. We understand, and we want to help you along.

Grief is a normal response to loss, and all of us experience it. Sometimes it is harder, and we can feel stuck in our pain, unable to begin the healing process. If that is your experience, or if you simply need some support during your grieving, counseling can help a great deal. I use a variety of methods that can be helpful, ranging from supportive work to healing traumas that may have accompanied the loss you have experienced. Everyone's situation is different, so my approach is different for each person. Please call if you would like to explore whether therapy might help at this time.

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.

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.

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences a person goes through. It is so important to be able to honor the relationship in a space where one can speak freely, tell stories, and attribute meaning to the connection. I am interested in exploring the impact and legacies of significant relationships and how clients can integrate them into their current lives.

At some point, everyone experiences the grief and loss of something or someone valuable in life. The key is knowing how to grieve one's loss. Most people don't know how to grieve and our culture does not allow for it. Entering therapy after a loss of a job, relationship, or a loved one can help heal the wounds and help the individual move on with life.

We believe a vital part of therapy is the idea of grief and loss. Your ability to accept things the way they are can be hugely affected by the way you have dealt with loss in your life. In order to create a new future, sometimes that requires mourning the loss of some aspect of yourself. If therapy is something you are considering, then chances are you have had many struggles in your life and something you resorted to for survival may not be the best coping skill of today. However, letting go of that coping skill can be a painful loss of yourself. For example, if you found validation in sexual experiences and clung to some aspect of relationships throughout your life, then letting go of

It is almost impossible for any of us to go through life without experiencing one or a series of losses. It could be a death, the end of a romantic relationship, loss of a job, being turned down by a university, or any other form of loss. Any type of loss can produce understandable feelings of sadness, shock, anger, difficulty sleeping, and confusion. When we experience loss, we go through various stages of grieving. I am specifically trained and have considerable experience helping people navigate through their experiences of loss and the grieving. Having experienced several losses in my own life, I have a good idea about what works and what doesn't.

Grief and loss are a part of the human experience. We all go through it at times in our lives. It can be the loss of a loved one, loss of a job, loss of a pet, divorce, separation, etc. When the feelings of grief and loss become so great that we feel we need help to cope, sometimes psychotherapy is the answer. As your therapist, I will provide a trusting and secure environment allowing you to explore your thoughts and feelings around the loss or losses you have experienced. I will help you build support for yourself and teach coping skills to help you get through this very difficult time. I believe that when grief and loss are dealt with in a healthy way, the outcome is strength and courage.

Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than searing pain.
