Loss and suffering in life seem almost unavoidable. Whether it's the death of a loved one, a lost or unhealthy relationship, or the feeling of hopelessness that can come from a loss of vision or identity. Grief and loss is a vital place of the human experience that I am confident can be comforted and redeemed in the context of a relationship with God and others. It is core to understanding the value and impact of your life and I would love to help and encourage you in this place of feeling despair and hopelessness.

In life, we will all experience grief and loss. We can mourn even when changes are positive and we've initiated them. There is no timeline or one specific method to grieving, each person's style is unique as well as their story. Therapy provides a safe and trusted place where you can share your grief and be heard, validated for what you are experiencing, and have a person to partner with in the process. The time spent in therapy is set aside just for you.

When we lose someone close to us it can be difficult for us to "move on," when the world tells us to "get over it." This causes us to question how we can keep on going. Oftentimes it leads us to question God or what goodness there is in the world. Grief counseling can help you explore these difficult life questions and help you reach a sense of healing.

In 64081 - Nearby to Claycomo.

It is important to understand that working through grief is a journey. It is coming to terms with the loss of hopes, dreams, and visions of what we thought the future would bring. Working through grief takes time and permission to allow ourselves to feel what we feel and still move toward a resolution of hope and healing for the future. Let me help you discover ways of coping that are best suited to you and your pace during this time of healing. Giving yourself permission to move forward with life is not a dismissal of the loss of people, events, physical belongings, or plans that were most important to you… it is redefining what you envision for yourself and your future.

The loss of a loved one or instrumental person in your life brings a range of mixed emotions. There are times when grief and loss can become debilitating, and the help of a trained therapist can be helpful. Overwhelming sadness can turn into depression and post traumatic stress disorder. EMDR, individual talk therapy, and expressive techniques such as art and sand tray therapy can help. Nothing can bring your loved one back. But being able to live your life, while remembering your loved one and all the positive memories, will help you be able to look forward in life, instead of feeling stuck in the past.

I use Self Psychology (a branch of psychoanalysis that uses human developmental science, sustained empathy and the therapy relationship itself to understand and bring healing to problems). I work from a warm, empathic standpoint in which I try to enter your shoes and understand your experiences as you do, not as others do. Insight is not the main goal (although that certainly happens), rather formative moments of feeling tuned into, deeply understood and emotionally held are the goal. These offer new emotional experiences that really catalyze psychological growth and healing. Benefits include increased: feelings of vitality and realness, hope, self-esteem, emotion regulation, etc.

Your loved one will always be a part of you. The process of acceptance, and integration of their memory and the emotions around this, is a journey. Don't let anyone tell you that you should be over your loss in a set amount of time. We are all do grief differently. Our current culture is often not helpful with this process. Sometimes those closest to us are not helpful either. I have lost both parents, and 25 years ago suffered the loss of my brother. My family had no experience with healthy processing of grief. My experience informs my training and passion for wanting to be a place of compassion and empathy for you and your loved ones. Help is available now

Grief and loss in a part of life. The pain associated with grief can rob you of hope and the ability to move forward in your life. I believe that it is important to allow the natural grieving process to take it's course; however, it is also important to find hope and meaning for your life through this process of loss. Narrative therapy allows you to discover your own unique path of healing.

Loss and grief has an impact in our lives of which we often do not understand, but it is a common thread that links all of us together. Unfortunately our culture is one in which it doesn't like to acknowledge or talk about it and often denies it's effect. My goal would be to help you understand your journey, acknowledge its emotions, help you embrace it and pass through this difficult period in your life. Please remember grief and loss is NOT a thing to be fixed in you, it is a process we often need more understanding about in accepting and dealing with it today and in our future.

Clients can expect to feel heard and validated in their grief process. Grief is exactly that, a process. What you are feeling and experiencing is uniquely yours. There is no time frame and no specific order in the stages of grief. It is fluid, can come and go, and you can experience more than one stage at once. I strive to assist clients with whatever they are going through.
