When grief's anguish becomes unbearable and life does not return to normal, psychological counseling can be extremely helpful in navigating you back to a satisfying and productive life. I work with you according to your unique experience while taking into account your cultural background and spiritual orientation. I help you review your relationship with the loved one or loss and find new meaning while respecting the impact of the loss. Memory, reflection, ritual and dialogue are some of the methods I use. I also look at how you have dealt with loss in the past. Of equal importance, I assist you in finding and maintaining healthy coping strategies to manage symptoms when times get tough

We will work together to remember your loss and to move forward in life. You will be able to identify what the loss means to you and if that is causing you to remain stuck in the grieving process. I will help you use that meaning to start a healing journey. You will learn to take advantage of community resources and I will help support you through a difficult range of emotions. You will learn the interaction of your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors during the grieving process.

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.

Living life challenges us in so many ways, and dealing with grief and loss is something we must all face and endure. By offering you a safe and supportive space to express your grief and working with you to take steps to heal, there is hope for relief and change. Is it a quick fix? No. But by helping you regain a mindful sense of self, comforting connection with others and realistic efforts toward feeling peace, there is hope for joy.

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 is a natural state after a loss. Mourning is natural and healthy. Acute grief does not need to be pathologized or treated. Those experiencing complicated grief may benefit from speaking to a warm, caring professional. In addition, a skilled therapist can listen, help you understand if therapy is appropriate or not, and explain what complicated grief is. If you are having sleep problems or symptoms of depression or PTSD related to the loss, therapy could be helpful. Our therapists are here to help and not interfere with the natural healing process. If support and guidance could be helpful to you, please call us with any questions.

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.

Loss is an inevitable part of life, through the loss of a loved one, the loss of health, or the letting go of a long-held dream. The grief that follows is a natural part of the healing process, but it is difficult and painful. For many, the pain of grief can be overwhelming and there seems to be no end in sight. I help clients understand and accept where they are, to develop ways of coping, and to build a new path forward.
