Whether we endure loss due to changes in life roles, the end of a relationship or the death of a loved one, grief impacts all aspects of our being. The process of grief is one of reconstructing the meaning of our lives and relationships. We heal by taking time to focus on our loss, sharing our pain with someone we trust, and attending to the meaning of our loss in the present moment. I will walk with you, bear witness to your struggle and help you move through the debilitating maze of grief. When you allow yourself to grieve fully, the experience of loss has the power to bring you into deeper connection with yourself and feel the beauty, mystery and and meaning of life in a new way.

Grief is an individualized internal experience.There is no right way or right amount of time to grieve. Dialoguing about life and death, disappointments and future opportunities allows each person the space to grieve and also recreate their lives from this moment on. In my 30+ years of clinical practice, I assist my clients as they experience the emotional pain and the full recognition of their loss. I support them as they build the emotional resilience to overcome their grief, turning their energy into future opportunities.

Loss, and the grief associated with it usually equates to feelings of hopelessness and despair, sometimes accompanied by confusion and instability. My approach to the loss and grief experience is to help clients unravel and process a myriad of emotions. The goal here is to be supportive, explore and clarify the feelings relative to the individual's experience and restore equilibrium.

My approach to grief and loss therapy begins with understanding each client's unique experience of loss. I help clients accept their loss and experience its sadness. We then explore their range of feelings, including anger, denial, guilt, loneliness, and depression and develop a customized treatment plan to help them return to optimal functioning.

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.

Grief and Loss is one of the most difficult things you are probably experiencing. Our approach is to help you process what is going on and how you can move forward. This process is individualized and we will work together each step of the way. There is no limit on grief so if you have heard "Get over it" or "Why is it taking you so long to get past this", you know you are talking to the wrong people about your feeling. You need someone who understand and can help you process these feelings, not someone who is going to make you feel shameful about your feelings. It is important to understand you do not need to do this alone.

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.

Experiencing a loss of any kind can be especially traumatic. It is my belief that having a safe place to address issues related to this loss can be particularly beneficial. Each person deals with loss differently and I emphasize the need to allow each person to go through the process in order to successfully transition to a healthier and happier place, and versions of themselves.

I offer gentle support and comfort for my clients at a pace that they can tolerate. My clients have expressed to me that my ability to listen empathetically has allowed them the time to process the devastation and loss they’ve witnessed. People who’ve experienced death or divorce may feel angry, depressed, empty, and/or alone. I take time with them to respect these feelings, and do not prescribe ways they “should” be feeling. Grief is different for all, some experience it as a sudden event while others witness gradual decline of a loved one, both can still feel numb or raw. Perspective clients can call or email me to begin a dialogue; we determine then if proceeding is right for you.

Grief is a natural response to loss. The emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away can be overwhelming. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief will be. You may associate grief with the death of a loved one—which is often the cause of the most intense type of grief—but there are other losses which cause grief, including; loss of a pet, a Job, or home, divorce or break-up, empty nest syndrome/children leaving the home, losing a friend, etc. Therapy can aid you in processing your grief and help you to move forward and grow.

The key to my approach in working with people who are grieving a loss is to recognize that, while grief and loss are universal experiences, the way each person grieves can be very different. It is important to honor that. The key benefit in working with me is that I will help you find a way through your grieving that works for you. There is no one correct way. Each person has their own unique way of coping with grief and loss. My job is to help you find ways to heal in your own way.

Grief is a natural response to a loss, and loss can come in many forms: loss of a relationship, friendship, health, job, financial stability, safety; death of a loved one or even a pet; or a loved one’s serious illness. It is normal to feel sad, numb, angry, even guilty, following a loss, but these feelings should become less intense over time. In therapy, together we can explore if the pain and feelings surrounding your loss are so constant and severe that they keep you from resuming your life, if you feel “stuck” in an intense state of morning and how to overcome and learn to live again.

Each person has their own way of coping with loss, whether it be the death of a family member or friend, or loss of a marriage or relationship. There are so many factors that play into how loss effects us, including but not limited to; the manor in which the loss occurred ( i.e. long term illness, sudden unexpected death), the relationship (i.e. parent, sibling, child), the quality of relationship (I.e. healthy and close, distanced and strained), and how you and your family of origin have dealt with loss in the past. I have been successfully helping clients gain the insight and tools to cope with their grief and loss throughout my entire career.

The process of grief is a natural and normal response to the loss of a significant other, a relationship or the result of a life transition. Though grief is normal it can be a different experience for everyone. Seeking support in an effort to better understand your feelings and emotions over the course of the grieving process can help with healing and preventing prolonged or complicated pain. Therapy can help you safely explore your emotions and teach you coping skills to help you manage your grief - particularly if it becomes extensive and borders into a state of clinical depression.

A compassionate ear and an understanding that people handle grief and loss differently. Also, the very many forms of grief and loss, which include, not only death of a loved one, but divorce, breakups, loss of job/career, life transitions, geographical moves etc.. I believe grief and loss are the basis for a multitude of symptoms; including physical,emotional and spiritual.

Clients experiencing loss are often at a cross roads, their life continues to move on but someone is missing from their day to day experiences. These clients may be struggling to understand how to live their life without the person they have lost. I like to work with clients as they learn how they can begin to move forward and live their life so they can honor and cherish their loved one's memory.
