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.

Everyone must deal with grief and loss at some point in their lives. When the loss is significant, the sadness can be overwhelming.

Just being there for someone who is dealing with loss and the grief that accompanies it is often sufficient to help them manage the feelings and get back to living their own life in a productive and satisfying way.

When we try to run away from grief, we may be able to push it down temporarily, however there becomes a time for “the straw that broke the camel’s back.” Grief layers with loss. So when we attempt to run away from the grief we are actually intensifying our pain and we tend to deaden a part of us in the process. When we delay grief, which is common to many individuals, we narrow our options in life. We begin to survive rather than fully live. We must complete our psychological business with the past before we can move on and form new attachments and live life fully.

Everyone experiences loss at some point in their lives. Grieving is a natural response to loss. Sometimes, though, a person's ability to grieve is thwarted by life stressors, resulting in feelings of guilt, confusion and depression. There is no right way to grieve, but it is important not to avoid it so you can begin your healing. If you have lost a significant other: a partner, parent, friend or pet, therapy is an safe place and an effective way to begin or continue your grieving process.

One of the hardest things in life is experiencing the loss of someone or something so close to us.

I will support you as you navigate through the stages of grief, and adapt to the changes life has brought your way. If you have lost someone close to you, I will help you find meaningful ways for you to honor their memory, as well as help you identify community resources to support you in your healing process.

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.

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.
