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.

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.

I believe empathic attunement to bereavement and grief is more than expressing "I'm sorry for your loss." As a clinician, it's about relationally connecting with a client, and communicating that it is okay to sit in difficult emotions together. The real healing and growth occur when there is space to weep, laugh, reflect, get angry, or even just know it is okay to sit in silence together. As a trained therapist, I know the steps to take in looking at the trauma of loss. However, anyone can know that by reading a book. I am here to be relationally and empathically connected in a safe space where we can drop down together to work through difficult emotions.

There are multiple forms of loss, ranging from lost friendship to to the loss of a loved one, which could be a pet or a person. I would encourage open communication about feelings and strongly believe that an individual's feelings should not be judged or criticized. I would also encourage the individual to allow sufficient time to recover from their loss; there is no "right" amount of time to process a loss.

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!

Throughout our lives, we all experience grief and loss. Sometimes these occasions are more easily experienced than others. It is helpful to have someone for support, to hear you out on all of the emotions that are going on with the grief and loss. No two people will experience grief and loss the same, and each of us will have different ways and timelines to cope. Particularly in the area of fertility, grief and loss can be recurrent and persistent. I will utilize mindfulness strategies as well as offer support in guiding you through your experiences.

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.

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.
