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.

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.

As a pediatric therapist, I have helped children, teens, and young adults work through may different types of loss, from the sudden death of a parent or grandparent, the loss that comes as the result of a parents' divorce, or the many losses associated with foster care and adoption. Therapy can provide a place for your child to grieve the loss of any important person in their life.

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.
