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."

Recognizing that people deal with loss and grief in a variety of ways that are unique to who they are, there prior experiences with loss and grief, I meet each person where they are at a attempt to faciliate them through the grieving process via their uniqueness. In addition, I educate clients on the different feelings, etc. that they might be experiencing and help them label it in a way that makes sense for them and who they are.

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....

Grief and loss is something we can't avoid in life. I have learned we need to face it and live through it. I personally know the pain caused by divorce and the death of family members having lost my son, Scott, at the age of 29. However, as we talk about it and share its pain, I believe we can get through the dark valleys of life to get to the other side.

The most difficult part of life is experiencing the loss of a loved one. Nothing we experience is more painful than this. Despite this often incapacitating pain, with work and time, one can heal and overcome. When this occurs, one emerges from the pain as a new person, in ways that one could not formerly conceive. A large part of my work is guiding people through this process, as I am deeply familiar with it, both personally and professionally.

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 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.

Through therapy in my office clients are able to explore the complex feelings and reactions to loss. A supportive and nurturing environment is provided so clients feel comfortable sharing sensitive and emotionally charged memories in a safe place. We laugh, we cry we mourn together the loss that one has experienced. In a nonjudgmental fashion we explore how to hold onto the memories and feelings of grief. When the client is ready we explore how to propel forward despite the loss.

The grieving process is different for every individual and it happens at your own time and at your own pace. Feelings surrounding that grief and loss can vary and be very confusing to most people. Although grief and loss is a part of life but I don't think there is anything you can do to truly prepare for it. No one way of grieving is better than any other, so I can help you find your way!

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 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.

None of us is ever fully ready for the loss of someone close. Suddenly a gap opens in our world. A face we expect to see, a voice we long to hear, is gone. Sadness enters, loneliness, even desolation. It may feel like no one appreciates how deeply we ache. If overwhelming grief continues to crowd out the small pleasures of daily life, it may be time to seek help. I can help you recover your balance. Together we can sort out the shock of recent loss from the forgotten pain of past losses that multiplies sadness. You will find hope for your future.

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.
