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.

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 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.

Lose can be painful. Losing someone or something you love or care deeply about never arrives in our lives at a good time. During our periods of loss we may experience all kinds of difficult emotions and it may feel like the pain and sadness each of us experience may never end. Anger, anxiety or depression may be overwhelming. These reactions to a significant loss are normal. As your counselor, we will journey with you during this time of grief. We will not tell you the right or wrong way to grieve, but we can guide you with healthy ways to cope with the pain that, in time, can renew you and permit you to move on. Rather than tolerating your loss we will assist you in accepting the loss. As you k....

Grief creates shifts in our lives that can leave us temporarily feeling alone, lost and unsteady. Studies show that individuals that seek support during this difficult season, can actually shorten the grief period, and are less likely to experience "complicated grief". It would be my honor to journey with you during this difficult season. I look forward to hearing from you.

Nearly everyone has or will experience grief and loss in their lifetime. Grief is a normal and natural way to respond to the loss of a loved one or to a significant life change. Each person grieves in their own way and the length of recovery varies from person to person. Grief can be complicated by other factors such as multiple losses, preexisting depression, trauma, and the person’s dependency upon the deceased or lifestyle they lost. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to grieve. I do not take a "one size fits all" approach, but respond with sensitivity to your individual situation.

Times of grief are some of the most painful experiences we have as human beings. But these times are also wonderful in the sense that this is part of our humanity - it's painful because of our ability and capacity to love. With love comes loss - and with loss comes great emotional pain. But the grief journey can also be a time of amazing reflection, growth, and renewal. Sometimes grief is fresh and sometimes grief is deep-seated from events long past. Either way, learning to not fear your grief but to be able to sit with it and use it as a tool to transform yourself is a powerful benefit of this great emotional pain.

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.
