I am here to bear witness to your pain and to explore with you the path through it, including how much to let go of, and examination of what was lost. Grief and emotional, sometimes physical suffering are natural, albeit sometimes unbearable, responses to loss. Examining what it is that was lost, what needs it filled and how to cope in it's absence is very individual. Sometimes it hurts as a direct and equal reflection of how much we cared, for better or worse.

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.

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

We all experience grief & loss from time to time. However, there are some losses that are simply too big to get through in the usual ways. At times like this we need additional support. Successful grieving entails coming to terms with the enormity of the loss and making tough decisions about how to meaningfully proceed with living in a world that no longer feels the same.

Grief is a reaction to loss and it takes time. It is a process of learning how to live in a world that has changed in fundamental ways. When we lose a loved one, or a relationship ends, we have to relearn how to be with ourselves, our families and our friends. We must cope and manage painful feelings, and create new systems of meaning that allow us to live with joy and purpose despite our losses. Treatment can help you negotiate the various stages and painful emotions that are part of this process.

Grief and loss can come in many forms. While most people think of death and dying, loss can be a separation or divorce, loss of a job, retirement, moving, seeing a child off to college, losing weight. There are so many more that I could list. All of these have an impact on us and how we view ourselves and our world. They shake us, they make us feel a bit less steady. It requires a therapeutic relationship that is supportive, understanding and hopeful.

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.

At times grief can be all encompassing and take away one’s sense of meaning, place in the world ,or hope in the future. I work with people to find small openings from where you can see that, although it may feel like it, grief is not a static state which will be here forever but something that can be moved through in order to create meaning in life after loss.

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.

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.

Grief and loss can be triggered by many things; the death of a loved one, the loss of a beloved mate, being let go at a valued job, and many others. When we cannot get over the loss by ourselves, a therapist point us down new roads. Suddenly vistas of possibility begin to open up, and what once seemed hopelessly sad begins to take on its proper importance.
