When we think of grief, it is usually as a reaction to the loss of a loved one, but grief can also take place because of a break-up or divorce, loss of a job, loss of a role in life (i.e empty nester), loss of finances, or other painful experiences. As a compassionate and deeply empathic therapist, your needs and concerns are primary when working with me. My approach is person-centered, strength based, supportive but also engaging. I understand that when processing grief, it can sometimes be difficult managing intense feelings. In our work together, I will help you process the loss, find peace and hope, implement coping skills to navigate through the grief and tools to move your forward.

Grief, sadness, occurs for many reasons, and is met with empathy and compassion in my practice. We grieve for death of a loved one; loss of a relationship; family, a marriage; a home; loss of a job; a friend. In short, there are as many forms of grief as there are reasons for it. There is no set time to grieve, some need more time to process through than others. Extended or complicated grief can interfere with relationships, employment, family. It can develop into a very deep melancholy or sadness and even depression. Grief/loss can create anxiety and stress. Together we'll find the best way for you to survive, thrive and overcome your grief and live the life you truly want.

Whether it is a geographical move, a shift from college student to adulthood or the loss of a job, loss of a loved one, or a painful end to a relationship, these and other changes and losses can affect us powerfully. I work with people to process and mourn what no longer is and discover ways to acquire the personal flexibility needed to accommodate transition and loss.

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.

Different people respond to grief and loss in many different ways. There is no right or wrong way to deal with loss. It is important to address the feelings that come up during the grieving process, whether they be painful memories or joyous ones. People often find that they work through unresolved issues from previous losses during this process. This helps people learn how to cope with death in a way that helps them move forward while being able to think about the person they've lost in a way that does not impact them like it did before.

When I very young I lost my fiancée. I went about life as if nothing had happened until it caught up to me. I was trying to open a door with a key and it wouldn't work. I found myself crying and felt out of control. This happened because I didn't want to grieve. What I learned is you can't skip this process. It will catch up to you at the strangest times. I can walk you through this without bottoming out. Ignoring it and avoiding it doesn't work

Grief and loss are certainly very difficult to deal with, but sooner or later, it comes to all of us. I meet my clients right where they are in the process of their grieving, and sit with them in that space. I help people to walk through the feelings and stay with them through the process. I create a safe space where clients can be with all the emotions they are experiencing. I am very patient as individuals walk through their grief at their own pace.

Grief is something you will, unfortunately, have to go through. You can't go around it, skip over it to the end, or otherwise avoid it. I can help you realize when you are going through the process and when you're fleeing it in a way that will come back to bit you in the ***. On the positive side, going through grief is not as complicated as it's sometimes cracked up to be. Talking - with the right person - goes a long way to moving the process forward.

If it is a past loss we will talk about that relationship and what it meant to you, and see how that person affected you in your current life and what he/she meant to you. If it is a current or impending loss, we can focus on day-to-day issues to lessen anxiety, and process how to handle what time is left. Practical issues may be discussed. if you find yourself obsessing we will probably focus on feeling, if you find yourself lost in feeling, we may focus on verbalizing your thoughts and your feelings. If you are overwhelmed by depression and find it difficult to function, I will make recommendations for medications and/or alternative strategies.
