Loss and grief has an impact in our lives of which we often do not understand, but it is a common thread that links all of us together. Unfortunately our culture is one in which it doesn't like to acknowledge or talk about it and often denies it's effect. My goal would be to help you understand your journey, acknowledge its emotions, help you embrace it and pass through this difficult period in your life. Please remember grief and loss is NOT a thing to be fixed in you, it is a process we often need more understanding about in accepting and dealing with it today and in our future.

Grief is overwhelming. It's hard to know where to begin at times. Grief is also complicated. Often times we experience several emotions besides sadness when dealing with the lost of a loved one. I help clients identify these emotions and barriers they may have to feeling them, while also providing a comforting and safe space for you to process your loss.

To live is to grieve. Death affects each of us at some point in our life. The way we grieve is determined by a number of factors. There is no one way to mourn a loved one. Therapy can be helpful in moving us forward in one's grief. There is help for those who are grieving. I can provide you with a warm, accepting environment to help you heal from your grief.

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.

Your loved one will always be a part of you. The process of acceptance, and integration of their memory and the emotions around this, is a journey. Don't let anyone tell you that you should be over your loss in a set amount of time. We are all do grief differently. Our current culture is often not helpful with this process. Sometimes those closest to us are not helpful either. I have lost both parents, and 25 years ago suffered the loss of my brother. My family had no experience with healthy processing of grief. My experience informs my training and passion for wanting to be a place of compassion and empathy for you and your loved ones. Help is available now

The loss of a loved one or instrumental person in your life brings a range of mixed emotions. There are times when grief and loss can become debilitating, and the help of a trained therapist can be helpful. Overwhelming sadness can turn into depression and post traumatic stress disorder. EMDR, individual talk therapy, and expressive techniques such as art and sand tray therapy can help. Nothing can bring your loved one back. But being able to live your life, while remembering your loved one and all the positive memories, will help you be able to look forward in life, instead of feeling stuck in the past.

Grief and loss in a part of life. The pain associated with grief can rob you of hope and the ability to move forward in your life. I believe that it is important to allow the natural grieving process to take it's course; however, it is also important to find hope and meaning for your life through this process of loss. Narrative therapy allows you to discover your own unique path of healing.
