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.

Relying on personal (death of spouse/other family members/close friends) as well as professional training and experience, Grief Therapy is one of my specialties, including therapy for those affected by a loved one's suicide. Your grief journey is unique, and each loss is different. Therapy can help you to successfully navigate your way through the grief process and to learn that much of what you feel is a normal, natural part of the painful and often difficult grief process.

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.

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

Healing in the grief process looks different for everyone and I can provide a space for you to feel and share what you need to. I will provide support and empathetic listening to remind you that you are not alone during this difficult time. We can also identify other ways to connect with others and feel supported within your friends and family as well. Although nothing can fix a loss, therapy can be a powerful tool in the process to experience some relief and begin to heal.

While everyone grieves in their own way and in their own time, losing a loved one feels devastating. Furthermore, grief can be complicated by other conditions such as depression and level of dependence on the departed. The good news is that therapy is a very effective way to manage grief symptoms and cope with stressors from the loss. When you see me for grief & loss therapy, we will discuss how the grief is impacting your life and create a plan together to accelerate the healing process without losing any healthy emotional connections with the deceased. Give me a call today for a free consultation and we can put together a preliminary plan over the telephone.

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.
