Grief. If you're looking here, I am guessing you are going through something very tough. I'm so sorry for your loss. Grief is like waves of the ocean, sometimes big, sometimes small and many times unexpected like in the chip aisle at the grocery store. I have worked with many types of grief including divorce, cancer diagnosis, sexual abuse survivor, and several others. Many times friends, family, or a pastor are just the ticket to help a healing heart. Other times it is helpful to have a professional walk with you through these losses, feel more normal about your feelings, and come to gradual healing through just being together. Reach out today, you don't have to be alone!

I like to help the person work through grief and loss by helping them connect with their sorrow and bring loving closure to those relationships. This may include role playing and also narrative writing allowing them to express their feelings, memories, regrets, etc. Often we may create an experience where they can say goodbye and begin to let go and move on.

Grief & loss is specific to every individual and can take its own course and time frame. Knowing whether grief has crossed a line and is becoming dysfunctional or developing into clinical depression, takes a skilled diagnostician familiar with treating similar individuals. For over 15 years, our staff at The Lighthouse Emotional Wellness Center has treated individuals suffering with grief and loss, often in conjunction with family therapy services. This insures that the individual struggling has the support needed not only in the therapeutic setting but also at home.

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.

Grief & loss can be a very difficult part of life. The passing of a loved one or friend, the loss of a job or relationship, moving from one place to another and grieving all that we once knew are life transitions that are grief/loss issues that we need to heal from in order to move forward in our lives. I listen to people when they come and tell their stories of grief & loss & how they are affected & what it all means to them. I help them understand that grief is processed in different stages & it takes time to experience each stage of the grief/loss cycle. I help people to come to acceptance for the loss & help them move forward in their lives as best they can after loss has occurred.

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.

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.

When grieving we can experience a wide range of emotions. "Giving language" to these emotions - through speaking or writing - helps us make sense of our feelings and brings relief from the heaviness of grief. You will receive non-judgmental support and direction as you mourn your loss or losses. It is possible to find a new way to be - not to leave behind what you had, but to bring the best of your past into your future. A joyful life and a meaningful life can still be yours. Grief affects us physically as well as emotionally and spiritually. Grief counseling can help restore your body, mind and spirit. You can sleep better, feel less anxiety and fear and have more hope for your future

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.

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.
