Any loss is a shock to ourselves. Whether it is losing a loved one, a job, a house, a connection with someone, a form of well-being or functioning. Allowing yourself to grieve and learning how to grieve can create a much bigger path in your grieving experiences. Knowing the stages of grief and identifying how they relate to you and affect you while having an empathic therapist, will help you in this difficult time.

Losing a loved one is often a time of disruption and chaos, of sadness and loneliness. The predictability of "models of grieving" and their accompanying stages are often helpful, but can also be limiting in that no one person's process is just like anyone else's. When working with grief and loss, I help my client to remember the person they loved, and strive to meet my client where he or she at with their thoughts and feelings. The counseling may just be one or two sessions or may last over a year, depending on the circumstances and needs of my client.

Our graduate-trained therapists often work with issues of grief and loss. We can help you identify and move through the grief process, and will provide the acceptance and support you need during this difficult time. While we will meet you where you're at, regardless of your spiritual background, as Christian counselors we're uniquely prepared to speak words of hope from a Biblical perspective. While the pain is real, we believe in a loving God who promises to be with us in the midst of our pain, and who will not leave us or forsake us...a God who will comfort and strengthen us through the challenges of life, and remind us of the hope we have in Christ to see our loved ones again someday.

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 and Loss is a natural part of life, and sadly our culture doesn’t make much time for the process. Everything is so fast paced, and we are supposed to bounce back to our old selves quickly. Well, it takes time to mourn our losses, and it is so useful to have someone to listen with patience and compassion for as long as it takes to adapt to such momentous changes. If you decide to work with me, you will find a place to process your feelings, in your own time, alongside someone who is compassionate, warm and understanding. I encourage you to call to set up a complimentary, 30 minute consultation and see if we are a good fit.

Grief and loss are lonely events. Often we do not express the true depth of pain to our loved ones as a way of caring or protecting them. As your therapist, I can handle the full breadth of your grief. I will also help you go through the stages of grief in as meaningful a way as possible. I will provide education and information about these normal stages and I will suggest helpful interventions to ease the way.

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. Receiving professional psychological services can help you endure the loss and still live your life with purpose.

Grief and loss are part of life. We all go through grief at our own pace and it is not a linear process. It is more of a jumbled process landing on different phases of: anger, denial, depression, bargaining and eventually acceptance. After consulting with a grief counselor for a couple years I feel competent in helping clients move through their grief.

Overcoming grief and loss requires a balance of experiencing emotional pain and the conscious attempt to move forward in life in positive ways. This is a delicate balance and healing may take time. But there is always hope for a positive future that must be nurtured within the reality of one's loss.There must be an authentic experiencing of the feelings of hurt and pain. And this may take considerable time and patience, though every person is different in the way that they handle loss. Every person should be respected in their path taken for personal healing.

Grief Counselor

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

I approach the topic of grief and loss in an extremely sensitive and open manner. It takes incredible strength and bravery to open up about the grief and loss you have faced in your life. Whether that be the death of a loved one, the loss of a friend, the grief one faces when moving to a new town or country, or the ending of a relationship or marriage, there is no loss that doesn't have a great impact on your life

Loss often bring with it an experience of not having control. Human beings are unique. Our losses and the way we manage our feelings of grief are equally unique. Though some general guidelines may apply, losses impact people differently and each of us has an individual way of coping and healing. The powerful feelings unleashed by grief and loss can be overwhelming. Therapy can provide a safe environment for experiencing the feelings and thoughts and being able to regain stability and a sense of control.
