We will all have to navigate the experience of grief and loss at some point in our lives. How successfully a person is able to navigate depends on a variety of factors. I can help with new or unresolved long term grief issues. I offer clients a safe non-judgemental space to begin the healthy grieving process around the loss in order to complete the process of letting go.

While grief is our natural human response to loss, it can drain our energy and motivation for life. As a trained Grief Recovery specialist I join you in the journey as you review your relationship. Recovery from grief involves an accurate review of your relationship, looking at the positive and painful experiences. Together we discuss any regrets, guilt, joys and pain and take the specific steps necessary to complete your grief. The process generally takes about 7-10 sessions. It could take less or more time for you to experience significant relief from grief symptoms depending on the length and nature of your relationship, and other possible factors. Contact me today at (248) 929-5354.

Grief and loss are experienced not only when losing a loved one but when a relationship ends, a sex life declines and a person experiences a coming out process. The grief and loss attached to endings of a way of life can be just as devastating if not moreso. In death, the end is final. In grief involving relationships things change and grief can be prolonged. Coming out as LGBT one experiences loss of heterosexual privilege which can be painful. Losing trust with a spouse after cheating and affairs is hard to recover from and grief gets in the way of recovery.

Grief and loss can be difficult to navigate through on your own. My therapeutic approach involves being a support person for those who are grieving. I will assist the client in processing their emotions and thinking related to the loss. Additionally, I will help to educate the client on the grief process in order to successfully overcome the experienced loss. I utilize a cognitive behavioral approach in my treatment and therefore will help the client to understand how their thoughts affect their behaviors and may help or hinder their resolution of grief.

I believe that people's identities are intertwined, and therefore the loss of a significant person leaves gaps in our lives--even when we don't recognize them. We can recover, but we can't go back. Time helps, but what helps most is having someone who can hear the stories, both the painful ones and the joyful ones. A new story is already being written and with a trusted helper it can be a source of strength.

Grief occurs when we experience any type of loss. The loss may be a person, a dream, a job, or anything else that we valued. It is normal and expected. However, sometimes the grief is so strong, or lasts so long, that you need help to move forward and rebuild your life. I will provide a safe place where you can say the things you want to say, feel what you feel, and begin to imagine what your life can look like as you move forward. I will walk with you as you look for the positives in your life and support you as you begin to overcome the obstacles that grief and loss leave in your path.

Grief and loss are a part of everyone's life. But everyone copes with sorrow differently. Using empathy and personal life experiences I help clients understand the stages of grief as it can apply to death, divorce or moving. Teaching of the comforting role of the Holy Spirit is part of the growth through pain process.

Grief is a special kind of sadness that takes many forms. Actually, emotions can be mixed and become confusing. Friends and family often do not understand, or we fear being a burden to them. What is more, our culture often expects us to just move on. Janet provides a safe, supporting, understanding environment in which you can work through the healing process together. You will never forget, but you can begin to live again. And, you do not have to go through it alone.
