Whether your loss is sudden and clear or chronic and ambiguous you will experience grief. Grief is a normal response but it seems to have a mind of its own and can be completely overwhelming. Yet you must go on with your life somehow. The goal of grief counseling is not to get over it, but to help you build resilience and strength, find a new sense of meaning, and to grow forward in your own way. I will walk with you through this valley and support you in finding the path to recovery.

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.

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.

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!

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.
