Life can be seen as a series of losses. We do not suffer because of these losses, but because we do not know how to deal with the losses in healthy ways. Pain is part of life and pain needs to be embraced and understood. Grief is a normal response to loss. It takes us on a jouney of self-discovery and personal renewal. It is when we deny, minimize and run away from the uncomfortable feelings that flow from losses that we create our own internal problems. I can help you find the courage to face the pain of loss and disappointments. That will enable you will grow through the difficult parts and become a more fully alive person.

The loss of a loved one or someone close is often felt as a mix or cycle of emotions including sadness, anger, resentment, confusion, doubt, numbness, and also acceptance. However, we know that grief does not travel in a straight line and all of these feelings can come in any order and at any time. Working through grief and loss may mean finding a way to work through all of these emotions in a way that organically and naturally leads to acceptance and re-gaining a positive attitude toward the life we have in front of us. Therapy can be a place to bring the confusion and pain and safely and openly process it, working toward the other side of the grief and loss.

Grief and loss can be debilitating. But with the right support, it is possible to face difficult feelings and learn how to move through the stages of grief. Each individual will have their own process, and I encourage my clients to take their own path, while also providing support, encouragement, and guidance, so not only do they feel validated, but they also learn how to consider deeply-held beliefs from new perspectives.

Together we work through your grief, create rituals that honor your grief, relationships, and experiences.

Normalizing intense feelings of grief/loss is critical to emotional health and relational maturity. And this means often challenging our culture's views of labelling certain feelings as "bad". There are no "bad" feelings. Many are hesitant to enter their stories of grief/loss/intense sadness due to a fear of "falling apart". At times "falling apart" may be needed within the context of a support system or counseling environment and "falling apart" needs to be understood as "OK", normal and occasionally necessary. Our Lord modeled this as a "man of sorrows" and "fully acquainted with grief". Therapy, in part can give us the courage to embrace our stories and enter grief/loss.

When working with grief and loss, I use talk therapy, narrative therapy and EMDR to help people process their hurts and be able to move forward. I start with resourcing so that people can develop coping skills and stability before diving into their grief and trauma. With children, play therapy can be a great additional tool to use to help them process their grief indirectly.

Greif and loss are inevitable in life and there isn't a standard timetable or way in which we may find resolution. In some cases the goal isn't to resolve our grieving as much as learn to live with loss. I take an individual approach to living with grief and loss. We can use mindfulness techniques to be able to experience our pain in order to allow our emotions to be expressed.

You've lost so many things and people in your life after your divorce. The move into a smaller place and different neighborhood, while you get on your feet, has depleted your finances. The circle of friends you used to have at your kid's schools and your local church is now a forty-minute drive away. You are sinking into self- pity and resentment. How could God allow this to happen to you? You've tried to be faithful and make the right choices. Of course, you have failed in some ways too. You can process your grief and move on by feeling and sharing your path. Othertimes unresolved feelings can be cleared with prayer and mind-body work such as Splankna. You can step back into life again.

I have experienced grief and loss both personally and professionally. I always meet the person where they are at. Not where I want them to be. Grief and loss therapy takes as long as it needs to. Everyone is different. Everyone's pain is different. The decision to enter therapy will be a massive accomplishment. There is no need to suffer. You don't have to power through or get over it. You have to do what you need to. Grieving can take weeks, months, or years. Give yourself the time you and help you need.

You've recently experienced your first loss, or a recent loss is opening up old wounds you thought had healed. Grieving is a slow and challenging process. Having a professional who understands the different states and the rollercoaster of emotions you feel at times will help you feel more normal and help you accelerate the grieving process and find some inner peace. Grieving is personal and unique. I take a gentle and respectful approach to grief work, using a variety of tools such as mindfulness and EMDR to resource you and help you process your pain at your own pace.

Sitting alone in grief can be the hardest thing to do. As I sit with you and allow some of what needs to be released to be released, my hope is that you feel a sense of safety and healing. We walk through the stages of grief at your own pace: honoring memories, hurting from loss, feeling the "ugly" feelings of hurt and loss, and working through the transition of what life looks like now. Your healing can only happen in your timing, there is no right or wrong.

When we have lost a loved one it can be traumatizing. The trauma of separation and isolation can be an overwhelmng experience. I have learned that grief and loss can be a slow ache that never seems to stop rising, yet as we grieve, those we love become more and more a part of who we are. Understanding and unfolding these emotional moments is helpful when feeling such sadness.

Loss is anything that is no longer in your life that once had meaning to you (i.e. death of someone/ beloved pet, death of a dream to get pregnant, a miscarriage or an abortion, death of a career move, or even the loss of a relationship through divorce /break up). Loss can be a painful experience to go through, (acute, chronic or complicated) The emotional impact of grief can linger for months or years. We often feel alone in our grief. If grieving is becoming debilitating or impacting you physically, relationally, or with your self esteem, I am here to help you work through your feelings so they feel more manageable, less tender and you can find happiness in a "new place in your life".

We are here to support you through this journey.

Trained in Pastoral Care I work with my clients to understand, and live with the idea and feelings associated with grief and loss. Grief is a personal and unique experience and while many may feel recovered there can be a nagging sense of loss that lasts beyond what feels. K.R. Mitchell describes this loss as "Intrapsychic," "It is the experience of losing an emotionally important image of oneself, losing the possibilities of "what might have been," abandonment of plans for a particular future, the dying of a dream. Although often related to external experiences, it is itself an entirely inward experience."

Grief is normal, and it is a painful part of life that we all must face. Sometimes you can feel really alone, or feel like you will never get back to normal again. Maybe you lost a loved one suddenly, and this has been traumatic. Or perhaps you struggled for a long time caring for an ailing family member. And there are many other types of grief. We can help you to navigate the journey of healing from loss so that the experience enriches your life rather than taking a piece of you.

The death of a loved one can be the most stressful event in a person’s life. I know how a wide array of emotions can be experienced, such as sadness, anger, anxiety, guilt, and despair. Changes in sleep patterns and appetite can occur, as well as physical illness. These are all normal parts of grieving and the feelings can ebb and flow over time. It is important to seek out a therapist who understands your loss. As a family therapist I am specialty trained to understand the impact of loss on your family and I can assist you through your bereavement process.

Connecting to our experiences of grief & loss means connecting to ourselves again. As people, a common experience we share is that of loss. Sometimes a loss is a death, or the end of a relationship. Other times it may be result from a change in a persons health, possessional or security loss, or dreams and desires. The impact of a loss resonates through various parts of our life. The impact my be our sleep, nutrition, motivation, mood, relationships, job, or even passions/hobbies. It can feel overwhelming to sort out all the feelings and experiences. Counseling gives you a space to safely unload your experiences, receive validation, and create steps to reconnect to yourself and your life.

I honor whatever stage of grief my client may be visiting, whether anticipatory or grieving the death of a loved one, job, or life role. I will normalize the painful feelings, and educate about the different tasks of grief. In this painful but hopeful work, I help my client visit memories through talk, collage with magazing pictures, or even making a book about the loved one. Children enjoy making the book, "talking" with the deceased, picturing heaven. Adults may need to explore a wounded spiritual life, grieve the loss of all the roles that are changing, and find meaning and willingness to make new life choices. Art work and ritual help honor both the deceased and the living.

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.
