"As for grief, you'll find it comes in waves. When the ship is first wrecked, you're drowning, with wreckage all around you. You find some piece of the wreckage and you hang on for a while. Maybe it's some physical thing. Maybe it's a happy memory. Maybe it's a person who is also floating. For a while, all you can do is float. Stay alive." Grief and loss comes in all forms - from job loss to death of a loved one. Emotional based therapy will help you cope with the loss and adjust to a "new normal". I'll help you explore the loss, your grieving process, and help you find closure.

Loss and the resulting grief are a natural part of life. We never know what will bring the grieving process into our experience, whether it be the loss of a loved one, a job, a child, a way of life or feeling as if we are losing our sense of identity. My approach to grief is one rooted in compassion and helping each person find their own sense of self-compassion for the process of acceptance and moving forward with a renewed sense of spirit. We will always remember the loss but it is important to travel through it without allowing grief to hold our hearts down. I will help you mindfully walk through the sadness and anger that so often accompanies loss.

Grief is not a disorder. You don't need to be cured. You need to be able to talk to someone. Every study shows that talking about your pain is crucial to letting go. If you have been suffering pain from a loss longer than you think is good for you, there may be something keeping you stuck. We can work that out. Experiencing your grief is not easy; it is necessary.

There are multiple forms of loss, ranging from lost friendship to to the loss of a loved one, which could be a pet or a person. I would encourage open communication about feelings and strongly believe that an individual's feelings should not be judged or criticized. I would also encourage the individual to allow sufficient time to recover from their loss; there is no "right" amount of time to process a loss.

While everyone grieves in their own way and in their own time, losing a loved one feels devastating. Furthermore, grief can be complicated by other conditions such as depression and level of dependence on the departed. The good news is that therapy is a very effective way to manage grief symptoms and cope with stressors from the loss. When you see me for grief & loss therapy, we will discuss how the grief is impacting your life and create a plan together to accelerate the healing process without losing any healthy emotional connections with the deceased. Give me a call today for a free consultation and we can put together a preliminary plan over the telephone.

Whether we are wounded by the loss of loved ones, opportunities or even our health, we can feel so alone as life around us seems to move on while we feel forever changed. My goal is to provide a space to grieve and mourn what was lost, helping people adjust and find hope for the future. Therapy provides time and space to share memories, regrets, fears and other emotions related to grief in a non-judgmental, compassionate arena.

Loss is something that can shake anyone to their core. Everyone experiences loss differently and there is no one way to grieve. My goal with working with clients dealing with grief and loss issues is to help them process the pain of the loss while still being able to access the love and memory of the departed. I also have experience treating any symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that are associated with the loss.

I like to help the person work through grief and loss by helping them connect with their sorrow and bring loving closure to those relationships. This may include role playing and also narrative writing allowing them to express their feelings, memories, regrets, etc. Often we may create an experience where they can say goodbye and begin to let go and move on.
