Whether we are wounded by the loss of loved ones, opportunities or even our health, we can feel so alone as life around us seems to move on while we feel forever changed. My goal is to provide a space to grieve and mourn what was lost, helping people adjust and find hope for the future. Therapy provides time and space to share memories, regrets, fears and other emotions related to grief in a non-judgmental, compassionate arena.

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....

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.

Personal loss is a painful process and requires time to heal. Having a healthy means to work through grief is important. In my counseling experience I have had the opportunity to walk many individuals through the grief process. Because of my background in Christian ministry I find that I can also help people sort through the questions they have about faith and loss. One of the common questions I hear is, "How can a loving God allow this to happen?" If you are struggling with loss and have more questions than answers you need to find a safe place to process your feelings, find comfort and hope. I would like to walk this journey with you.

Grief is a natural way to deal with loss. Sadness, tears, sorrow and sometimes guilt can add to the feelings of loss. When grieving interferes with your everyday functioning is when it becomes a problem. I use narrative therapy, behavior modification and relaxation training to help with this issue. Being able to forgive oneself for the things we didn't do is an important step in recovery.

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.

Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be thereā€”to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

We have developed a model of grief and loss for adults and children. Dr. Kalyani Gopal has written a work book particularly for children. Initial intake focuses on the acute and chronic nature of the condition. The severity of the condition is determined by administering questionnaires and inventories. After carrying out a risk assessment, patient's need for medication is determined and, if needed, appropriate referral is made. We carefully monitor the patient condition. We use supportive and cognitive-behavioral approaches and at times eclectic method to achieve the desired goals.

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.
