Grief is a psychological reaction to loss. Losses come in many different forms, for example loss of a loved one, being severely injured in an accident, being diagnosed with a debilitating illness, breakup of a marital relationship, postpartum depression and experiences such as grieving over the loss of a job. During the course of my career I headed up the Rehabilitation Psychology Services in one of the largest hospitals in the U.S. where I had the opportunity to work with grief reactions in people experiencing illnesses and injuries ranging from cancer to strokes to severe mental illness and spinal cord injury.

Most of us will experience loss at some point in our lives. Grief is a reaction to any form of loss and this can include death, job loss, divorce, and changes in one’s abilities. Bereavement is a type of grief involving the death of a loved one. Both experiences can encompass a wide range of feelings from sadness to anger. Each one of us processes loss in a unique way depending on our upbringing, beliefs, religious or spiritual background, and our relationship to what was lost. My approach to grief and loss respects your unique process and helps you to process and move on.

Grief and loss comes in many different shapes and sizes, but the common denominator is that the heart is badly broken. In grief counseling, I help clients explore their broken heart and assist them to learn "to dance with the limp" (Ann Lamott). If you feel like you've experienced a loss of someone or something that was so meaningful to you, you probably feel like a piece of you has been taken away. I will assist you to reconnect with those parts of you that are missing and to learn how to find joy and meaning in your life.

If you can grieve well, you can live well. Loss is a normal part of life, so learning to grieve loss should be a normal part of life as well. If you struggle with grief and loss, I can help. More than likely, you feel “stuck” in your grief. You probably are. I believe getting stuck happens because our culture doesn’t value grieving. It actually teaches us to “move on.” You should be able to move on. The trick is how. I can help you navigate your grief in a way that will move you thorough it. The approach I use can also be used with any other troubling emotions. Contact me today for help with your grief. You don’t have to remain stuck any longer.

Grief counseling can help you, after the death of a loved one, reorient yourself in how you relate to the deceased, yourself, and your outside world. It includes facing the reality of this loss, finding ways to express and channel your pain, and then reconstruct your attachment from one in the physical realm to one of more symbolic interaction. Other ways you can be helped include developing a new sense of identity-revamping your way of being in the presence of your loved one and now without it. Along with this, I will help you articulate your losses, find healthy ways to compensate for them, and discover other avenues in which to make an emotional investment.

Grief is real and a process we go through. There are stages and each comes with its unique emotions and thoughts. I, personally, have experienced loss in a variety of ways and worked with many who have experienced many different kinds of loss. I meet people where they are at the time we get together. I do not pressure people to move, but sit with them and empathize. There is grace and no expectations. However, the goal is to progress through the stages and live life in the present. We don't forget the loss, but it no longer is reeking havoc in our daily experiences.

I utilize an active model of grieving that helps the client have a map, so to speak, to be able to recognize where they are in the process of working through the loss. For example, the first step is to get through the denial and shock of what has happened to where one can accept its reality. Secondly, it's important to tell one's story in order to address a person's desire to regain what was lost. Third, is to address the despair and effects to one's life by coming to terms with what has happened, making meaning, identifying specific goals for therapy along with a treatment plan. Then finally, moving forward, withdrawing the energy once given to the trauma and redirecting it to find meaning.

I have helped many individuals struggling with the loss of a loved one, friend or beloved animal. I help you identify when grief is appropriate and when it is taking on a role of its own. It is possible to get stuck in your grief and have it impact multiple other areas of your life. I will help you to walk through the steps to complete the grief process and honor the memory of the one that you lost.

There are many different kinds of losses: loss of a loved one through death, loss of a loved one for some other reason, loss of a spouse due to divorce or separation, loss of a job, loss of a home, loss of financial resources, loss of health, loss of a pet, etc. The loss of hopes and dreams can be devastating. When these feelings of grief are put aside without being addressed, then the unresolved grief can affect you in unexpected ways. However, by allowing yourself to grieve and to work through these losses with a caring counselor, then you can come to a place of healing and hope again.

My belief is that grief is a normal response to loss. Initially, it can be very intense and seemingly constant. Then it starts to subside and we experience waves of grief intermingled with our more typical daily experiences. However, sometimes the intensity remains. Rather than grief seeming to move, we seem stuck in the depth of pain. By using a combination of conventional talk therapy along with Emotional Freedom Technique (Energy Psychology), I can help you to unblock the stuck feelings and begin to see the joy in life again.

When a beloved person or pet dies, our hearts hurt, sometimes very badly. The loss and grief can be so deep we think we won't ever get over it. Depression, anger, and confusion are common symptoms. We're more vulnerable to getting sick because intense emotions can wreak havoc with our immune systems. You don't have to go through this alone. I'm a safe person with whom to feel all your emotions, even the ones you think you shouldn't have. I won't tell you "just get over it." I'll show you how to resolve the grief as quickly as possible, all the while, honoring your own process and your own timing. You can learn to feel whole again.
