I did mymasters thesis on how to work with homicide victim survivors and I have worked with many peoiple who have lost family members to violence. I have also worked with people who have lost spouses and children. IN my work with military I have worked with combat vets who have experienced traumatic losses.While therapy cannot totally remove the pain of grief, I have helped people to heal and function better as a result.

I believe empathic attunement to bereavement and grief is more than expressing "I'm sorry for your loss." As a clinician, it's about relationally connecting with a client, and communicating that it is okay to sit in difficult emotions together. The real healing and growth occur when there is space to weep, laugh, reflect, get angry, or even just know it is okay to sit in silence together. As a trained therapist, I know the steps to take in looking at the trauma of loss. However, anyone can know that by reading a book. I am here to be relationally and empathically connected in a safe space where we can drop down together to work through difficult emotions.

I have experience working with clients who are going through the grieving process in regard to the loss of a relationship. This pertains to a break up with a significant other, accepting that a parent is unable to fulfill an ideal role we have in our minds, etc. These losses can be just as traumatic as the death of a loved one, and most clients experience Kubler-Ross' Stages of Grief.

Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be thereā€”to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

Grief creates shifts in our lives that can leave us temporarily feeling alone, lost and unsteady. Studies show that individuals that seek support during this difficult season, can actually shorten the grief period, and are less likely to experience "complicated grief". It would be my honor to journey with you during this difficult season. I look forward to hearing from you.

Throughout our lives, we all experience grief and loss. Sometimes these occasions are more easily experienced than others. It is helpful to have someone for support, to hear you out on all of the emotions that are going on with the grief and loss. No two people will experience grief and loss the same, and each of us will have different ways and timelines to cope. Particularly in the area of fertility, grief and loss can be recurrent and persistent. I will utilize mindfulness strategies as well as offer support in guiding you through your experiences.

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.

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....
