Grieving is a normal human reaction to the loss we experience in our lives. Loss can be experienced through death of a loved one, a change in lifestyle, the end of a relationship, the decision to stop an addiction and even retirement. The process of grieving is a very unique process with no particular time amount or level of intensity easily predicted. The extremely private nature of experiencing grief can make it quite challenging and having a confidential, supportive and kind therapist to help you through that process can be very helpful. I can help you in your healing process to find new meaning to your life and discover a way to enjoy your memories without remorse.

Lose can be painful. Losing someone or something you love or care deeply about never arrives in our lives at a good time. During our periods of loss we may experience all kinds of difficult emotions and it may feel like the pain and sadness each of us experience may never end. Anger, anxiety or depression may be overwhelming. These reactions to a significant loss are normal. As your counselor, we will journey with you during this time of grief. We will not tell you the right or wrong way to grieve, but we can guide you with healthy ways to cope with the pain that, in time, can renew you and permit you to move on. Rather than tolerating your loss we will assist you in accepting the loss. As you k....

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.

You may feel like no amount of talking could possibly help you overcome the sadness you feel right now. What you may not realize is that therapy can be incredibly effective in helping you manage the difficult and complicated feelings commonly accompanying the loss of a loved one. Everything you are feeling is normal! In therapy, you'll learn tools to help manage intensely painful emotions while honoring the memory of your loved one(s). While therapy cannot entirely take the pain away, it can certainly take the edge off so you can begin to function again. With the help of therapy, you'll begin to experience more and more periods of relief and in time, even begin to feel joy again.

When grieving we can experience a wide range of emotions. "Giving language" to these emotions - through speaking or writing - helps us make sense of our feelings and brings relief from the heaviness of grief. You will receive non-judgmental support and direction as you mourn your loss or losses. It is possible to find a new way to be - not to leave behind what you had, but to bring the best of your past into your future. A joyful life and a meaningful life can still be yours. Grief affects us physically as well as emotionally and spiritually. Grief counseling can help restore your body, mind and spirit. You can sleep better, feel less anxiety and fear and have more hope for your future

Losing a loved one is probably one of the most difficult challenges we can endure. Our entire perspective on life can change in an instant. Your greif experience is unique because only you know the nuances of your relationship to the person you lost. This is a time to be gentle with yourself as you move through the stages of grief but also to make healthy choices for yourself, which is not always easy to do on your own. I'd be honored to walk with you through this painful time as you explore your thoughts and feelings and learn to embrace life without your loved one.

Personal loss is a painful process and requires time to heal. Having a healthy means to work through grief is important. In my counseling experience I have had the opportunity to walk many individuals through the grief process. Because of my background in Christian ministry I find that I can also help people sort through the questions they have about faith and loss. One of the common questions I hear is, "How can a loving God allow this to happen?" If you are struggling with loss and have more questions than answers you need to find a safe place to process your feelings, find comfort and hope. I would like to walk this journey with you.
