Our society doesn't always do such a great job understanding grief and loss...well-meaning friends and family just want you to "move on" and "be okay". When I work with clients around grief and loss, I try to educate them on the wave-like quality of grief; that it comes in waves, and ebbs and flows. Just because it comes back occasionally doesn't mean you're not healing - it takes time, patience and understanding, but you can heal.

Most people who come to therapy are suffering from some loss, whether from a death of a loved one or the loss of a job or of a relationship. There is also the loss of dreams. Together, we work to find out what the losses have been and to "work through" them. This is hard work, but on the "other side" of this work, once it has been done, is the energy and vitality and the peace of mind that has been missing. I usually use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) for this work, as there is so much research to support it, and it works quickly compared to most therapeutic approaches.

Grief and Loss are a normal aspect of human life, however there are times when it is traumatic, unexpected or more difficult to deal with. My goal is to provide a compassionate ear for you but to always help you move past the grief by asking "what is better". Focusing on even the smallest positive changes can help you move forward and begin the healing process.

Grief and loss are a natural and unavoidable part of life, whether it is a sudden loss, like the loss of a loved one to death, or a more gradual loss, like the loss of physical vitality with illness or aging. When a very large loss overwhelms us and makes life seem painful and perhaps meaningless, it is time to get help to put that loss in perspective. I help people to work their way through loss and find ways to make it part of the larger mosaic of their life, helping them reduce the overwhelming pain and helping them find hope and meaning again.

Grief and traumatic events are all times in your life when you need someone to listen, interpret, reflect and help you navigate life's difficult passages. Additionally, as a Pastoral Clinically Trained Counselor, I can support your existential, faith, and spiritually related issues. I believe deeply in each person's innate resilience and ability to grow through life losses, transitions, and crises. My overall mission as your grief counselor is to serve as your grief companion and to depathologize and normalize your own grief experiences. My first priority is to offer you compassionate, nonjudgmental listening, which moves you toward healing.

It is common and expected to experience sadness if you have lost someone you love. One of the most important factors in healing is having support. Even if you are not normally comfortable talking about your feelings under normal circumstance, it is important to have some place where you can express them when your grieving. We can help you gain an understanding of your feelings and provide you coping strategies for dealing with the loss.

Life can present you with difficult situations which are hard to process and move past. These challenges are not on your timeline and affect everything. Having worked in many healthcare settings, I am familiar navigating life-changing events and grief. I understand the territory of encountering loss, coping with trauma, the complexity of the medical system and living with illness. These issues can have ripple effects on your relationships, sense of self and perceptions of the world. I know how complex things can get, and I will support you during this process.

Grief is a normal process, one we all must go through to move through our sorrow and heal. But it is a also a process in which we can become stuck in ways that cause us to remain stuck in our pain, limiting our ability to move forward in our lives. You might be avoiding or resisting the sadness of your loss, experiencing extreme guilt or depression, or feeling immobilized by your grief. As you work through your grief, you will begin to feel more connected to the world and, although you will never forget your loss, you will work through your grief in a way that allows you to feel whole again and to move through the world in healthier ways.
