Grief and loss can come in all shapes and forms; it can be debilitating and it can often go unnoticed or it can get left unattended. Grief and loss can resurface if it is not properly addressed and tended to. It can be scary to deal with grief as other unexpected emotions may surface as well, such as anger. However, it can also be a place where healing and growth can take place.

Grief is an experience in which many emotions come to the surface with little control. One moment may be happiness with a fond memory, quickly replaced by crushing sadness. Anger followed by joy about how others loved you in it. The sorrow is chronic. We never "get over" our loses, as others would have us do. We will explore those emotions in session. Having lost two children, you will definitely be felt and cared for.

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.

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.

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.

I am passionate about my work with individuals suffering with grief and loss. I have been touched personally by significant losses including the death of my father when I was a child and the unexpected death of my first husband after being married for just seven months. Some life experiences teach you more than what can ever be learned in the classroom. I consider it a privilege to be with you in this process. While no two experiences are the same I can relate in a very real way and be able to draw on experiences to help you manage your way through grief. I can hold your hope when you are left to pick up the pieces and create a life that you can live in without the one you love.
