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.

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.

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

People don't realize they have permission to grieve people who have not yet past, or situations that used to make us happy. The reality is that grief & loss can happen without being obvious to anyone else. We all have a missing piece inside of us that might never go away. I help you get through the loss, get comfortable in uncomfortable, and create a new normal you can live with.

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.

People who work with me on grief and loss will benefit from my person-centered and non-pathologizing approach. When we loose someone or something that has deep meaning in our lives, it is only natural that our lives are disrupted. 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.

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 frequent issue among substance abusers and people in recovery. People can experience a significant sense of grief and loss for a variety of reasons, not just from the death of a loved one. Any loss viewed as significant to the individual can bring on the grieving process: loss of a pet, job, home, relationship, child, a life transition such as high school or college graduation or retirement, the coming out process for an individual of the LGBT community, or their loved ones and the loss of “what they thought the persons future would bring” can be a loss. I can help clients work through the various emotions associated with their loss as part of their healing process.

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.

Licensed Marriage, Family and Individual Therapist

Grief is part of life as the buddists say. My approach is to help clients accept the loss by working through the pain, without feeling alone that way they can adjust to the loss and move on. Grief is painful. It is easier to deal with when one does not feel so alone. I use a strength based approach to grief work. Each person knows what is best for them to heal and I yeild to that internal wisdom.

Are you asking: What is the right way to grieve? How do I help my children cope with losing someone while I am grieving? How do I work through my guilty feelings surrounding this death? Why am I sad about losing someone who hurt me? Why am I not sad? Will this pain ever get better? There is no right way to grieve. There may be healthier ways for you to grieve that will help you move through the intense feelings. Often, it is most important to make time to remember the good times, to process the painful memories connected with that person and to reconnect with life. I specialize in providing individual, couple or family grief counseling to adolescents, adults, veterans, and first responders.

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.
