Whether you have lost a loved one, a job or house you know that your world has changed. Unfortunately those around you may have little insight into what you are going through. Frankly you as well be confused. Those around you mean well but their well-intentioned words bring little relief. I can help you understand what you are going through and what would make sense as far as the next steps to take. I will teach you about how to pace yourself regarding any changes you might want to make. I will assist you in understanding the nature of grief and what to expect as far as your own experiences. Ultimately I will assist you in finding your own path toward hope and relief.

Grieving is different than depression! At times we may not be able to distinguish between the two. Grieving is a very individual process. We all do it differently. It can result from the death of someone significant in our lives, but also from other events too. For example, meeting a long-term goal, divorce, the loss of physical health & functioning, loss of a job, or after a traumatic experience. To grieve effectively any of us need support and encouragement to face the needs and painful feelings that we often would prefer to avoid. I find that providing a warm, safe environment and supportive guidance allows my clients to feel what they need to feel in order to integrate painful losses.

Few of us are able to avoid feeling grief or loss. It can occur throughout our life in many different situations and for many reasons. It can be devastating to individuals, families, and communities. A person's ability to cope (resilience) is a big factor to consider when helping people with grief. Help is a very individual process. Therapists must be able to understand the event, but more importantly the impact on and resilience of the client, for best interventions.

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 emotional pain.

When someone we love dies,or we have been blindsided by a major life event, it feels like life itself stops. Everything as we have known it, feels changed. We cannot depend upon the emotional, physical or maybe even spiritual securities which we were previously grounded in. We are often flooded with intense emotions that are very difficult to understand and manage. Sometimes life's challenges bring up unresolved past pain, guilt or shame. Grief's best friend is someone who will sit with us, listen, offer support, emotional catharsis, and hope. Talking to a supportive other is the path out of our grief pain. Don't suffer alone, call us today.

I do not believe we were created to handle death well. It is not something that comes naturally to us as humans. We don't understand it, we don't look forward to it, and we don't know how to help those who are in the middle of a situation where grief or loss are a constant part of their day. Grief is a process that requires you to accept things as they are while also being able to find peace, hope, and contentment in your present and future. If you are grieving the loss of someone close to you or you are watching someone you love slowly change into someone you don't know then please contact me and we can begin working through this journey together!

Grief is sometimes a lonely journey. Each person reacts to loss in their own way and on their own time schedule. I approach psychotherapy for grief and loss as an opportunity to learn about the cycle of grief. I want to learn more about you and where you are at in the process. Similarly, I try to give practical tips for dealing with sad moments while supporting you through the process.

Grief never disappears, but over time can become a more manageable part of your life. All of the feelings you may have in the grieving process are welcome in the room with me.

Everyone experiences grief and loss differently, depending on the type of loss and where one is at in life. And the truth is, there is no one right way, which can make this particular journey especially confusing. My clients are able to share what they need to share, grieve freely in a supportive and compassionate environment, and learn to incorporate their loss into their lives. Additionally, I use horses in therapy a great deal - and would love to talk more with you about how they may be able to help you on your grief and loss journey! I offer home-based therapy, or the more traditional office setting.

Grief is a process that is different for everyone. It is a journey and it does take time. Therapy can help with this journey. Eventually the hope is that you will get to the point where, even though you can't forget the pain, eventually it has less of an impact on your day-to-day life. Just being able to be heard and understood can be helpful. Rituals of closure can also help. You don't have to go through your grief alone.

Loss isn’t something we “get over.” It’s something we get through. And healing takes time. Relationships don’t end when someone you love dies, leaves home, or gives up. You continue to carry that person with you going forward. It’s important to be patient with the grief process, and to talk about your loss with someone who doesn’t try to rush you, or paint a smiley face on your loss. Let’s talk. Let’s celebrate what was good, what you will miss, what made that relationship unique. Shakespeare said it best when he suggested we “Give sorrow words.” Talking is healing when someone really understands.

The loss of a loved one (whether through physical or emotional separation) is a profound experience and one that will forever mark a transformational point in your life. Often times the pain you feel is evidence of the depth of your caring, and you may actually feel ambivalent about reducing your suffering in the face of such devastation. You and I can walk together through this process, helping you to find peace alongside the suffering and growth in the midst of loss.

I work a great deal with trauma issues. I consider trauma a loss. I offer EMDR therapy for trauma and loss issues and trauma for veterans. Patients who have suffered for years from anxiety or distressing memories, nightmares, insomnia, abuse or other traumatic events can now gain relief from a therapy called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). Research shows that EMDR is rapid, safe and effective. EMDR does not involve the use of drugs or hypnosis. It is a simple, non-invasive patient-therapist collaboration in which healing can happen effectively. Many patients who have made slow progress in the past benefit greatly with EMDR.

Grief is normal, exquisitely painful, and seriously lonely. My earliest therapy experience was as a Hospice Grief Counselor for four years. In those formative years, I learned the core issues that hamper our grief, the practices that make grief more tolerable, and the practiced patience necessary to bring comfort to those suffering sudden and protracted loss. I won't rush you. I'll normalize your pain and I'll nudge you gently toward practices that help.

We know everyone experiences grief and loss, but when it's happening to you it can feel so lonely and overwhelming. In my office, you don't have to pretend to be okay and we can talk about every feeling or thought you're experiencing - no matter how "crazy" or dark or insignificant it feels or sounds to you. Setting up a counseling appointment can be the first step in taking care of yourself.

When you lose someone or something that you love, it can feel as though your world has ended. Everyone reacts to grief and loss differently. For example, one person may cope by denying that the loss has happened, another person may bury his/her hurt in busy behaviors (such as working), while others may be able to express their sadness in a direct manner. All are common responses to loss. Grief can prove difficult: it may abate and then reappear seemingly out of nowhere. Or in the case of couples, different grief reactions can result in significant conflict. Our work together can address the common feelings associated with grief, improve overall coping, and increase acceptance of the loss

People who work with me on grief and loss will benefit from my person-centered and non-pathologizing approach.

I provide people with the support, time and space they need to move through grief and loss at a pace that is right for them.

The impact of loss in our lives can be devastating and often impacts one's desire for life. The meaning of your life may seem very different when you experience a loss. Loss and grief often result in some form of depression or anxiety. Sometimes you may just try and divert the pain by becoming over involved in areas of your life. The effort of trying to bury the pain only serves to enhance the loss. Therefore, seeking help for your loss in therapy can be crucial. While working with you, we can begin to understand the meaning of your loss and the painful feelings. I am have worked extensively with individuals experiencing grief and loss. I would welcome your call.
