People who grieve and mourn well, go on to live well and to love well. Effective mourning is to take what is inside and bring it out. My approach to Grief work is to basically "pull up a chair" to the bereaved and together honor what was lost and then to help the person find new possibility, hope and meaning for themselves and for the change that is occuring. Ultimately I can help you move from resistance to acceptance.

The pain of loss is the common thread among us all. None of us escapes that pain, whether it's loss of a relationship, a job, or our self respect. When dealing with divorce or other life transitions, we need to mourn the loss of dreams and hopes. Often we busy ourselves or turn to substances to avoid that pain. This can quickly turn to complicated grief-- grief on top of grief, multiplying the pain, which can lead to debilitating depression or other physical illnesses. I have extensive training in healing grief and loss. No matter how bad it hurts, it's not too late to come for healing.
