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.

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.

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.

Grief is a natural response to loss. It is the emotional response we feel when someone or something is no longer there. Grief can set in after the death of a loved one, divorce, lost relationship, employment, quitting an addiction, empty nest syndrome, death of an animal, etc… Therapy will provide education on the grieving process, teach healthy coping skills, and help you move forward while celebrating the positives.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
