I offer gentle support and comfort for my clients at a pace that they can tolerate. My clients have expressed to me that my ability to listen empathetically has allowed them the time to process the devastation and loss they’ve witnessed. People who’ve experienced death or divorce may feel angry, depressed, empty, and/or alone. I take time with them to respect these feelings, and do not prescribe ways they “should” be feeling. Grief is different for all, some experience it as a sudden event while others witness gradual decline of a loved one, both can still feel numb or raw. Perspective clients can call or email me to begin a dialogue; we determine then if proceeding is right for you.

Grief is a natural response to loss. The emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away can be overwhelming. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief will be. You may associate grief with the death of a loved one—which is often the cause of the most intense type of grief—but there are other losses which cause grief, including; loss of a pet, a Job, or home, divorce or break-up, empty nest syndrome/children leaving the home, losing a friend, etc. Therapy can aid you in processing your grief and help you to move forward and grow.

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.

Whether we endure loss due to changes in life roles, the end of a relationship or the death of a loved one, grief impacts all aspects of our being. The process of grief is one of reconstructing the meaning of our lives and relationships. We heal by taking time to focus on our loss, sharing our pain with someone we trust, and attending to the meaning of our loss in the present moment. I will walk with you, bear witness to your struggle and help you move through the debilitating maze of grief. When you allow yourself to grieve fully, the experience of loss has the power to bring you into deeper connection with yourself and feel the beauty, mystery and and meaning of life in a new way.

Clients experiencing loss are often at a cross roads, their life continues to move on but someone is missing from their day to day experiences. These clients may be struggling to understand how to live their life without the person they have lost. I like to work with clients as they learn how they can begin to move forward and live their life so they can honor and cherish their loved one's memory.

In grief and loss feelings of isolation and aloneness along with shock and disbelief can cause us to shut down or deny the pain and emptiness inside. It is normal to have intense feelings or no feelings at all in the early stages of loss. When we cut off or deny our feelings we cut off the recovery process. As a therapist I provide a stable relationship that provides the opportunity to identify, feel, and express the variety of thoughts and feelings each client has. This allows the natural grieving process to progress and relieves the emotional pain caused by loss. Healing occurs when we feel connected to a stable accepting person who supports our unique way of coping with grief.

Grief is often a deeply painful response to the loss of a loved one, including pets. The death of a loved one is often the most common way we think of loss, but many other significant changes in our lives can involve loss and therefore grief. Everyone experiences loss and grief at some time. It is a natural and normal experience. And the more significant the loss, the more intense the grief is likely to be. The experience of grief can leave you feeling alone, anxious, depressed, lonely, fatigued, and confused. However, a loss can also lead to a new way of thinking and perceiving life. Each of us experiences, reacts and expresses grief differently. For example, one person may withdraw and feel....

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

Research now shows us that there are not set stages and ways to grieve the loss of a loved one. A person's ability to move on is based on their own resilience. Making meaning of one's life can help. Whether through writing a narrative, recalling fond memories or making new ones through creating new interests, connection helps with loss. Therapy gives a welcome space to share the many feelings that come along with letting go.

I incorporate Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross's stages of Grief Therapy.Dr. Ross believes that we must go through denial, anger and acceptance I also believe in the near death experiences of many patients who share experiences in their after life or what happens when you die. Believing this life is only the beginning ,I incorporate a religious perspective with the patients faith and writings into therapy. I am of the belief that all faiths are from one and the same God.
