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.

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!

You may feel like no amount of talking could possibly help you overcome the sadness you feel right now. What you may not realize is that therapy can be incredibly effective in helping you manage the difficult and complicated feelings commonly accompanying the loss of a loved one. Everything you are feeling is normal! In therapy, you'll learn tools to help manage intensely painful emotions while honoring the memory of your loved one(s). While therapy cannot entirely take the pain away, it can certainly take the edge off so you can begin to function again. With the help of therapy, you'll begin to experience more and more periods of relief and in time, even begin to feel joy again.

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.

We generally think of grief and loss in relation to the death of people we have been close with, such as family, friends, coworkers and others with whom we have been close. While death is certainly the worst kind of loss we are called upon to face and grieve over, there are other meaningful losses we must endure and find a way to grieve toward resolution and inner peace. Such losses as the breakup of significant relationships, through divorce or separation from any loved one certainly call for grieving. Loss of one’s job can amount to a meaningful loss that requires grieving to go on with a new and constructive adjustment. The loss of one’s health can also present serious challenges to keepin....

Loss is something that can shake anyone to their core. Everyone experiences loss differently and there is no one way to grieve. My goal with working with clients dealing with grief and loss issues is to help them process the pain of the loss while still being able to access the love and memory of the departed. I also have experience treating any symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that are associated with the loss.

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.

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.

We all experience a deep feeling of grief or loss at least once in our lives whether it is unexpected or suddenly. Grief isn't just secluded to the loss of a person but can also include a pet, home, divorce, or anything else you have felt a deep attachment to. Grief is a multi-faceted feeling that manifests itself differently in everyone. I have grieved and I believe I can help you with simply understanding and relating with how you're feeling.

The key areas of grief and loss is learning to create what is known as a "new normal". This new normal can be created after a death, loss of job or even the loss of a relationship like divorce. Being able to understand the grief steps and what to expect brings hope to individuals and families who may have just had what they once new as normal completely change sometimes overnight.

Dealing with grief is about realizing the impact someone has had on your life and how you can use this experience to honor them. When people heal from the sadness they reach a place of newness. There really aren't five stages of grief as we once thought but there is a process with alternating phases. Each person has their own "theory" about grief and once they discover what it is, they are better able to accept and move through the process.
