Often people come in hoping to remove or erase their grief. While the desire to feel "normal" again is a natural response to loss, I'd like to offer a different perspective. In my experience, it is often the aversion to experiencing the many and varied grief symptoms - rather than grief itself - that often gets in the way of healing and transformation. Let me accompany you to create a different and healthy relationship with your grief, to lean into your loss and make meaning of it. In this way you may expand your capacity to be with all of your feelings and more fully present and engaged in the life you are living now.

I have had 25 years of experience counseling persons in grief and loss. Even though grief is painful, I remind clients that it is not forever as I help them understand the various aspects and the process. It can be healing to know that you are not going through the whole thing alone. Sometimes loss stirs up other issues, but usually it doesn't, and can be negotiated more quickly than the initial pain seems to indicate. Sometimes working with the body is very helpful in loss, and I help clients relese tension they may not have been aware of. I am here to be present, to be a guide and to help you through the entire process.
