Relationship endings are a guaranteed part of life that everyone experiences. When a relationship concludes – whether through death, divorce or some other reason – it is common to review it, examine it and even wish that something about it was different. Perhaps we regret something we said or longed to hear something from the other person. Endings are accompanied by conclusions to our hopes and dreams for the future. My approach to working with grieving clients is to permit them fully feel their loss and to process their grief in their own way and at their own pace. When it comes to grieving clients I will join with them in their loss and will encouraging them to feel all the feelings that surface about the person and the relationship they shared.

Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be there—to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than searing pain.

What does it look like to be paralyzed from grief? When you've lost someone near and dear to you, it's quite difficult to ever be the same. Our goal is not to ever be the same again, but to move to a place of honoring the person who has moved on. When you experience the excruciating void of the person who's moved on, it seems almost impossible to move on yourself. However, our work together will help you find what helps you to honor that person you love, and come back to your life and community stronger than before.

Grief and loss can be sudden or expected, as when a loved one passes from an accident or from a long standing illness. Grief and loss can also be felt when relationships end, or when major life changes occur. Perceived failures and unmet expectations can also cause feelings of grief and loss. Understanding and processing these events can help to reduce the effects of trauma, depression, anxiety, and self-doubt that can stem from grief and loss.

The range and intensity of emotions experienced as a result of a significant loss often make the grieving person feel like they are going crazy. You need a non-judgemental place to process the loss and the effect it has had and is having on your life, and to talk about what you are experiencing. You need someone who understands the devastation and its profound impact on you and who can help you pick up the pieces and gradually begin to imagine the future in a different way.

While grieving is normal when we have lost someone or something we loved and valued, it is nevertheless, painful and difficult. Grieving can even be more difficult when the relationship was conflicted and unhappy. Loss may be of a loved person or it can be of your health, independence, home, job, or beloved pet. Everyone grieves differently, and others in your life may not understand your way, or perhaps you are alone or feel alone. I can help you through the intensity of initial loss, work towards a balance of memories and taking your life forward, and do it your way. There is no right way to grieve and no set time limits. I will care about what is right for you.

How do you navigate the unimaginable? Children often look to adults, but what if the adults are grieving too? Adolescents may want to “stay strong” for their parents and siblings, but that does not leave room for their own grief. Talk-therapy will provide your teen with the emotional support and space they need. They will learn about the grief process (it is different for everyone, and there is no “right way” to do it) and healthy coping skills. In our work together, they will label their strong feelings of loss and communicate their needs safely. Your teen will have ownership over the entire process. We will go at their own pace. I am here to listen and support them every step of the way.

My philosophy of therapy and change is that change comes from within. As a therapist, I ask a great deal in asking an individual to change, as change is an incredibly difficult task for everyone. The journey of change requires both the client and myself to work collaboratively throughout this journey. It is for this reason that the rapport between the client and myself is critical. I aim to provide all my clients with the space to explore their underlying feelings, thoughts, and behaviors so that they can engage in change.

Suffering with grief and loss is often a lonely place. Others may try to comfort you, offering sympathy which is well-intended but often doesn’t help you heal. Talking to an experience therapist can help you move through the stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. The stages are normal, and although the process may be painful, reaching acceptance is the stage where you realize that although you may miss the person, your life is still worth living and can be productive and happy.
