I work with people who have been injured, diagnosed with serious illness, and who have lost loved ones. I also work with the person's familiy. While no therapist can provide absolute relief in such situations, I provide an empathic and supportive approach to help people understand the road ahead and to move forward no matter how difficult the circumstances.

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.

The death or loss of a loved one can be one of the most difficult events that you ever have to face. Sometimes therapy is needed to help you learn to cope with the thoughts and feelings that you are dealing with. If after a period of time, you have difficulty completing your every day activities and coping with life, it may be beneficial to meet with a professional. You may be "stuck" in one of the stages of the normal grieving process.

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.

Losing a loved one is one of the most devastating experiences in life. Losing abilities or functioning in chronic pain is a loss of another kind, but a loss nevertheless. Getting past the numbness and overwhelming pain is a uniquely personal process with a very individual timeline. I provide loving support and understanding of the grief process while carefully encouraging you to move forward when ready to see and understand the new landscape you are now living.

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.

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.

Grief is profound, affecting every area of life. Each person grieving is in uncharted territory, because the pain can be immense, and the process of grief is unique like one's fingerprint. There are commonalities and beacons to chart your progress, but moving through anger, fear, and sadness is a solo act. The questions can be overwhelming. I hope to be a support as you move to a new normal, understanding that life cannot be the same as it once was. We believe in finding ways to honor your losses, not just move on.

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!

Grief and loss is a very personal experience . Losing soneone really hurts and coping with the loss can be a very difficult process. Sometimes friends and or family members do not know what to say or do. Having a place where one can safely express thier feelings and thoughts freely can be helpful. Grieving is a process and a very personal one in nature.

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.
