The key areas of grief and loss is learning to create what is known as a "new normal". This new normal can be created after a death, loss of job or even the loss of a relationship like divorce. Being able to understand the grief steps and what to expect brings hope to individuals and families who may have just had what they once new as normal completely change sometimes overnight.

We all experience a deep feeling of grief or loss at least once in our lives whether it is unexpected or suddenly. Grief isn't just secluded to the loss of a person but can also include a pet, home, divorce, or anything else you have felt a deep attachment to. Grief is a multi-faceted feeling that manifests itself differently in everyone. I have grieved and I believe I can help you with simply understanding and relating with how you're feeling.

Grief & loss can be a very difficult part of life. The passing of a loved one or friend, the loss of a job or relationship, moving from one place to another and grieving all that we once knew are life transitions that are grief/loss issues that we need to heal from in order to move forward in our lives. I listen to people when they come and tell their stories of grief & loss & how they are affected & what it all means to them. I help them understand that grief is processed in different stages & it takes time to experience each stage of the grief/loss cycle. I help people to come to acceptance for the loss & help them move forward in their lives as best they can after loss has occurred.
