I am a psychotherapist who understands life, especially after a significant loss, can feel like a daily struggle. No one should have to endure these feelings alone. I compassionately listen and support clients as well as offer a therapeutic counseling relationship that provides the opportunity to emotionally move forward and bring a healthy balance back into their lives. It is possible to heal, gain a sense of well-being, restore hope, and rekindle happiness even during the most challenging times.

Grief and bereavement are natural emotions that we all will experience. In an adult’s lifetime, one will likely experience grief in a number of different relationships, including, but not limited to, the loss of a parent, spouse, sibling, friend, family member, co-worker, or child. Many factors play into how we will grieve including what the nature of the relationship was with the loss. Your journey through grief is unique. The same experiences which have shaped who you are will also affect how you experience and process grief and loss. Although your experience will be unique, there is much that is common about the grieving process. My approach to grief and loss counseling is to understan....

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.

The experience of a Loss can be devestating and cause one to become grief stricken. Denial, anger, guilt and grief are natural reactions to a loss. However, one must transistion from one stage to another in order to properly grieve. If you are unable to transistion and have become overwhelmed by grief, therapy can assist you with accepting your loss and properly dealing with your grief.

Grief is a natural part of life; we will eventually have to say goodbye to everything we love and are connected to. Yet, for many of us, grief does not feel natural. Sometimes we might feel angry about our losses -- that life is unjust. We might be depressed and longing for our loved one's presence again. Grief is a process. It takes time to heal. Often, people think "what is the use of counseling when they won't bring my loved one back?" There can be healing inside you even if your loved one cannot come back. Don't be alone in your grief.

What have you lost? What deep sadness has you reading this, today? Do you struggle with regret, shattered: hope, self-esteem, promise? Are you having difficulty making sense of things? Yourself? Having trouble picking up the pieces and moving forward? Wondering if anyone else ever felt your same feelings in their circumstances? Is what you're feeling normal? What do you do with these feelings?! Do you feel overwhelmed, stuck, in shock? Does the anger surprise you? There are many different kinds of feelings that surface when you are dealing with loss, and grief is much more complicated than most people realize. Causes include: endings of any kind; beginnings of any kind; illness; love; life!

As a psychologist, I have the compassion, experience, and skills to help individuals move through the stages of denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. I offer hope when individuals feel helpless.

I know personally what it is to experience loss. My clients sense I can relate to their unique situation, and are surprised to learn about the User-Friendly tools that help each person to maximize their recovery in a short period of time!!! I help them to determine their losses from the event and the feelings associated with these losses. Then we examine the consequences of the loss-feeling combinations. Often we use EMDR from there to settle the feelings and turn around any negative self-belief that has arisen from the losses. This turns out to be a fairly quick process even for those who have years of grief over their loss(es).

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 therapy aims to help people cope with grief and mourning following the death of loved ones, or with major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (e.g., divorce, major illness). Everyone experiences and expresses grief in their own way, often shaped by culture. They believe that it is not uncommon for a person to withdraw from their friends and family and feel helpless; some might be angry. One can expect a wide range of emotion and behavior associated with grief. We believe that in all places and cultures, the grieving person benefits from the support of others.

Grief is a natural process everyone feels when they have experienced a loss. We can experience a loss not just in a loved one (or pet) but in lost opportunities, in divorce with the loss of the unity of a family, and a host of other losses. We suck it up and stuff it down until one day something is too big for us and then "everything" we've sucked up or stuffed down begins to surface like a flood. Grief is meant to be fluid (continually moving). Grief isn't something you "get over." It's something you "go through."

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.
