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.

As a Clinical Psychologist in the second half of life, I know about grief and loss from my own personal experience as well as professionally over the past 25 years. Grief and loss aren't always about death. It can also be loss of a relationship, loss of a career, loss of health, loss of functioning because of injury, disease or aging or loss of self-identity. I explore all of this with you compassionately, empathically and allow you to feel and release whatever is necessary in your own time, to move forward in your life, in your own way.

Grief & Loss is a part of every human beings' life. Grief & Loss Therapy is an intrinsic part of moving forward. The benefits of Grief & Loss Therapy is that it allows people to plunge forward in their lives. Tragedy is a part of human existence, but how and what we do with it, determines who we are. I work with people to process & metabolize grief, to leave what they don't want behind, and to keep with them that which benefits, nourishes, and enhances their life!

Loss can take different forms, and going through loss is one of life's biggest challenges. I understand this and believe it is essential for those going through a loss to talk about it, feel it, and grieve it. In time, healing will occur but time itself does not heal. I will provide a safe place for you to explore how your loss affects your life and help you to use the resources, time, and tools necessary to not only get through it -- but grow through it -- and survive.

Sometimes when you lose a loved one, you need extra help. If you have experienced death of a friend, spouse or someone close to you, it can create severe emotional distress. When going through a major loss like this, it is easy to feel depressed, lonely and empty. Sometimes you may say to yourself, "Just snap out of it", but it does not seem to help. If you are struggling through the loss of a loved one and need someone to talk to that can help more than just a friend, please give me a call.

We all know that with life comes loss but it doesn't make the experience any easier. Grief and loss is different for everyone and there is no right way to go through the process. Loss in life can bring about changes in our view of the world or ourselves; it can often bring about anxieties that we've never experienced before. My approach is to help you understand the grieving process and how to move forward in life.

Among the benefits of grief counseling are: normalizing (grief feels strange but it is universal); making meaning (coming to terms with our mortality); and the opportunity to express feelings, safely and in full, about the person who has died. When a client suffers a loss during or prior to treatment, I communicate the message that each of us is entitled to a grief process of our own, with its own tempo, mood, and meaning, all of which fluctuate, often in complex ways. The support of an empathic person can help you walk the painful path that grief puts before you, a path which leads out of grief and back to life.

There are two emotions which can be utilized in the process of healing from trauma: anger and sadness. Sadness can be a very effective vehicle for healing. The only problem with sadness is that it is such a short leap from there to depression. Sadness heals; depression does not. Depression can keep a person stuck in the same place for years without any progress. You must be very careful not to fall into depression when you decide to explore your feelings about the negative experiences of your life. Unfortunately, many people find the difference between sadness and depression to be obscure at best, and they often vacillate between the two. We encourage you to be very careful of depression becau....

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.

As a hosptial chaplain and licensed therapist, I have years of experience working with people who are experiencing the loss of someone they loved who has died. When someone we love dies, we are never prepared for this. It is like losing an arm, how do you cope when your arm is gone? As a grief therapist, you will benefit from my years of experience and caring support helping you to grieve your loss. Counseling will help you to properly say goodbye and process the pain and feelings of anger, depression, and acceptance. You also will benefit from learning new ways to cope and adjust so that you do not remain stuck in loneliness.

When a person looses a loved one, life can become very, very dark. I understand, and I can help. Sometimes it is not a death. Sometimes it is the loss of a relationship, an estranged relationship, a divorce. Sometimes it is the loss of health or a career. But it is always something that is very dear to the person, and losing that something causes the person's world to fall apart. I know what it is like and I can help them navigate through the darkness, and help them find a new way of life.
