Whether we are wounded by the loss of loved ones, opportunities or even our health, we can feel so alone as life around us seems to move on while we feel forever changed. My goal is to provide a space to grieve and mourn what was lost, helping people adjust and find hope for the future. Therapy provides time and space to share memories, regrets, fears and other emotions related to grief in a non-judgmental, compassionate arena.

Grief and loss is one of my strength areas where I have lots of experience and expertise. Emphasis will be placed on the emotional component and reframing of the loss so that you can move on and return to full functional living engaging in life again. The work of Katherin Kubler-Ross will be utilized as a framework of the grief and loss process recognizing specific steps that one goes through as the loss is resolved. Learning how to" let go" becomes essential in order for new life to be obtained. Done properly, the individual comes out more resilient and having better coping skills to life a fulfilling life. I would be honored to help you go through "the process" and find new life.

I have counseled people experiencing many forms of grief and loss. I counsel grieving people with an empathetic, person-centered approach. I don't try to find 'quick answers' to somehow 'fix' people who are grieving. Since everyone grieves in different ways and for different lengths of time, I create a kind of space for people to truly grieve on their terms so that true, lasting healing takes place.

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.

Grief and loss is like a deep well where pain lives. Counseling is a process that allows you to talk about your loved one or the loss you've experienced in an on-going way until healing begins to occur. This is not a conversation you have with friends or family very often as most people don't know how to handle your grief or loss. I've worked with many grieving individuals and somehow we find a way to find life and live it fully again.

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.

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 not a disorder. You don't need to be cured. You need to be able to talk to someone. Every study shows that talking about your pain is crucial to letting go. If you have been suffering pain from a loss longer than you think is good for you, there may be something keeping you stuck. We can work that out. Experiencing your grief is not easy; it is necessary.

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.

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.

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.
