"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.

Losing a loved one is one of the most devastating experiences in life. Losing abilities or functioning in chronic pain is a loss of another kind, but a loss nevertheless. Getting past the numbness and overwhelming pain is a uniquely personal process with a very individual timeline. I provide loving support and understanding of the grief process while carefully encouraging you to move forward when ready to see and understand the new landscape you are now living.

Grief and loss are natural experiences in all of our lives--loss of a loved one, loss of employment, loss of position, loss of physical abilities, loss of relationships/love. All of these losses call us to grieve. Feelings of sadness and depression, of no interest in living, or perhaps of anger are normal responses to loss. Talking through feelings can relieve some of these emotions. When we are stuck in them, however, sometimes alternative therapies are helpful for a shift in the mind and heart. I offer traditional talk therapy but I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing [EMDR] and Thought Field Therapy [TFT] which can facilitate a shift in difficult areas..
