Processing a loss or trauma occurs in many ways, starting with talking. Losses by death of family and friends are likely our greatest losses in life. Maybe you didn't consider retirement, moving away, a serious heath diagnosis, or the end of a longterm friendship as a loss. Loss is actually uncontrollable change. Talking about how you are feeling is how you begin to let go. Time does not really heal all wounds. It is what you do with time that heals the wound.

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.

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.

We generally think of grief and loss in relation to the death of people we have been close with, such as family, friends, coworkers and others with whom we have been close. While death is certainly the worst kind of loss we are called upon to face and grieve over, there are other meaningful losses we must endure and find a way to grieve toward resolution and inner peace. Such losses as the breakup of significant relationships, through divorce or separation from any loved one certainly call for grieving. Loss of one’s job can amount to a meaningful loss that requires grieving to go on with a new and constructive adjustment. The loss of one’s health can also present serious challenges to keepin....

You are hurting. Grief is physical, it's intense, and it's non-stop. Often, it is difficult for partner's to understand the immense pain that their grieving partner is going through. They want to be there to support and comfort their partner, but they don't know where to start or what to do. This confusion can be challenging to navigate and has the potential to make things worse. I use research proven methods to help couples work through grief together. You don't have to experience the pain alone. Your partner can help you through it and I can show you both how to make that work.

We can also identify other ways to connect with others and feel supported within your friends and family as well.

Loss comes in many forms; whether it be a loss of someone who has passed away, a loss of a job, a betrayal such as infidelity that results in a loss of the relationship you thought you had, or even the feeling of losing your identity. I support clients at the pace that THEY are ready to go. Everyone heals differently and I respect every individual journey. In grief, there are no "should's" and "should not's" and I make sure to meet each client where they are in their grief while offering a sense of hope.

Loss is something that can shake anyone to their core. Everyone experiences loss differently and there is no one way to grieve. My goal with working with clients dealing with grief and loss issues is to help them process the pain of the loss while still being able to access the love and memory of the departed. I also have experience treating any symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that are associated with the loss.

The death of a loved one is a natural occurrence in an individual’s lifetime, but sometimes death is sudden and unexpected and can turn our world upside down. People may have difficulty processing their emotions after such an event, and as a result, their ability to function may be impacted as well. This may also be the case after dissolution of a marriage or other meaningful relationships, a health crisis resulting in declining abilities or causing disability, loss of employment, and a host of other circumstances in life that induce overwhelming feelings of grief/loss. Karen will support such an individual as they process their feelings associated with the grief/loss.
