Grieving the loss of anything in life, whether it be a loved one, a career, one's identity, spirituality, addictions and more can be very confusing and lonely. In grief counseling, I provide a compassionate presence to help you work through and gain strength while walking through all the stages of grief you may experience. I understand that grief is not limited to physical loss, but we most grieve expectations, dreams, relationships and so on. I've had the honor of speaking at the University of Tampa at their Remembrance Ceremony for the last several years. Here we've honored those we've lost and educated students on ways to cope in a healthy way

One of the most painful things a person can experience is the death of a loved one. There is no right or wrong way to grieve - everyone grieves in their own way. Grief bring about a complexity of emotions - anger, sadness, relief, guilt, and denial. In my practice, I provide a safe, comforting place for my clients to process their feelings of loss and learn coping skills to help them heal.

Loss is inescapable in life. Grief is the natural response to the loss we experience. Quite often our losses occur “too early” or are “too severe” or are “too many” at once to process healthily. Loss that seems impossible to “get over” along with more loss close behind can become a deep spiral downward. This feels overwhelming & reactions can begin to have a life of their own. My therapeutic care, coupled with my own personal understanding through loss, I assist clients in safe & timely ways to face these sometimes debilitating experiences. Using trauma reduction therapies (EMDR and RRT) clients are helped to gain breathing room and a healthy perspective usually within 1 to 3 sessions.

I have a BA in Religious Studies and use this knowledge to enhance healing and recovery from loss. Using a Christian approach with deep relaxation and guided spiritual visualization you can find reason and meaning in living your life fully again. You will have the added benefit of a brain health assessment to target how your brain is responding to grief. Then we target our holistic approach to treatment,. Moving through the pain of loss takes time but you can find meaning and purpose in moving forward. Whether your loss was expected or unexpected these specialized approaches can assist you through your pain to living a full life again.

The term "grief" often referred to in the context of loss of a loved one, is actually quite broad and can describe the complex feelings associated with loss as it relates to occupational changes, relocation, breakups, death of family members or pets, and more. I help clients I serve understand that grief is not a disorder, but a natural/normal process dealt with in ways that are entirely unique to each individual.

My approach to grief is to get through it, one must embrace it. Grief is not an event that at a particular time it will be just stop. Grief is like an ocean with waves of despair to utter calmness depending where their pendulum of grief is swinging. Clients will learn coping skills to deal with the symptoms the person is experiencing in their loss. The client will learn that although going thru the grief is slower and usually more painful, when he/she get to the other side, their grief does not have to haunt them in their future.

When grief and loss have gone on much longer than is typical, it often indicates there is some unacknowledged idea or feeling that has been preventing the person from grieving fully and they thus feel stuck. Though hard to bear, grief and loss are a natural and necessary part of life. Given a space in which to share one's pains and doubts, a client can go through his or her emotions and begin the healing process. This often results in greater understanding and a sense of relief.

So often it feels as if many people in your life are signaling to you in some way that you should "hurry up and get over it," whatever your loss may be. The truth is that grieving is a process unique to each of us. I would like to provide you the time and space you need to explore the losses you have endured -- in your time and in your own unique way.

Grief doesn't have to just be because the loss of a person. People can experience grief due to virtually any loss. The loss of a relationship, the loss of employment, or the loss of a life role. I can help someone learn about the grief process and help learn how to grief in a healthy way. People can also suffer from complex grief that can at times significantly interfere with how they function in life.

Do you want to understand why you are hurting? Loss is often accompanied by grief; whether it is a relationship, job, opportunity, or health, loss hurts. Sometimes we don't understand why we are grieving and often we feel alone in our loss because many times we experience it differently from those around us. Don't travel that path alone. I can help you make sense of the loss, find meaning and become stronger.

I offer grief and loss counseling and have training and experience helping children process traumatic grief. Counseling after the loss of a person, relationship, job, pet, health, or dream can help the grieving process flow more smoothly. Often friends and family feel helpless, do not know what to say or do, or make insensitive comments at a time when support is needed most. I offer counseling that is a combination of talk and activity. Accelerated Resolution Therapy also offers strategies that may help facilitate closure.
