"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.

I believe it is important for people who are grieving to be able to talk about their loss freely, without any pressure to be done with it. Too often, others impose time tables for grief, such as, "It's been three months--time for you to get on with your life. " Love is not measured by time. When we have loved someone deeply, it's unrealistic to believe that we can get over that person's(or pet's)death so easily. I offer a safe, accepting environment in which a person is able to grieve without feeling as if something is wrong with him/her for "not getting over it" yet.

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 the natural reaction to a loss and being able to grieve after a loss is necessary for healthy development. Examples of loss may include the death of a family member , loss of a job, the death of a much loved pet, loss of independence or freedom, or the ending of a relationship. Understanding the nature of the loss and helping to process feelings attached to it are the first steps in starting to heal.

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.

When grief doesn’t go away, seeking counseling for your bereavement may be helpful. It is normal to feel sadness, and the pain of losing a loved one never really goes away completely, but over time it should dissipate to where you can function normally. If you aren’t feeling better over time, or your grief is getting worse, it may be a sign that you should seek a therapist to help you work through the grieving process. You don't need to grieve alone. I can help you process your feelings, provide you life skills to deal with difficult moments of the grieving process, and ensure you heal in a healthy and positive way.

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.

Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than searing pain.

Athough grief is often intense and may feel like depression, it normally eases over time. When you become stuck in deep sadness, regret, and an inability to move on or when there was a trauma associated with the death, I can help you resolve the grief and find peace. I use gentle compassionate strategies to support your acceptance and return to a more satisfying life. You will learn to let go, to resolve regrets, and to enjoy life again.

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.
