Grief and Loss can trigger a variety of health concerns. Talking about issues of grief and loss in session help integrate the emotion center of our brain with the side which organizes and makes sense of the emotional content. One way to do this is through talk therapy which, over time, can help people process periods of grief and loss which are a part of all of our lives. This is especially important when people are also dealing with current or past trauma which can magnify periods of grief or loss. Finding a counselor with whom one can share one's deepest pain is especially important in this case, ensuring one receives help without overwhelming their closest friends and family.

Each individual experiences and accepts grief and loss differently; there is no cookie cutter approach that applies to all of us. Together, we will discover where you are on the path of healing from grief and loss. It can be a very bumpy and confusing road to travel; I believe non one should have to travel it alone. Together we will walk toward healing and restoration.

Grief can grab us when there is loss of who or what we love. I have found my own healing comes through honoring that relationship, individual, identity or role. Mourning can include emotion, expression and action that can tie the past to the present and future. Together we can become aware of how to tell and connect these stories in a meaningful way.

There are endless opportunities for loss in this lifetime- the loss of a loved one, a relationship, a job, a pet, lost potential, loss of a part of yourself through trauma. Whether your loss is recent or long-passed, it can have crippling affects on your relationships, your sense of security, and your sense of self. The loss you experience can leave you feeling lost and the grief that accompanies this can feel insurmountable. It's easy to become fearful that this will never change, to sink into the hopelessness you feel. It seems like an impossible task, but if you're on this site you have hope. Together, you and I can build on that hope.

It is common for family members to berate themselves about what they could have done, or what they did, to the person who has passed. While this gives the illusion of control,that if the grieving person could just have done this or that, they could have changed the outcome, this mode of thinking is actually a trap which can prolong the grieving process. I help bereaved people remove obstacles to the normal grieving process so that they can move through it and come to acceptance and peace.

Nothing in life compares to the pain of losing someone (or something) that was dear to your heart. As painful as a significant loss is, with support and guidance, you can move through the emotional pain and come to peace with your loss. From a trauma perspective, grief and loss issues are seen as a major trauma. Fortunately, the grief process can be significantly aided by the use of highly effective trauma processing modalities that I use (e.g. EMDR, Brainspotting, Energy Psychology). The ultimate goal of the grief work that I do is to help you feel understood and supported as you move through, come to terms with, and make sense of your grief.

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 emotional pain.

It is my belief that no two people grieve the same way. It also takes time to grieve and to process many unanswered questions. I have over 30 years of experience working with those who have lost, parents, spouses, and children. I personally have worked through the loss of parents and 2 children. I will work collaboratively with you taking as long as you need to process your grief until you can find ways to embrace life again.

When a client tells me about suffering from past trauma and loss, I ask them how they would like to feel instead. Many of them have forgotten that there could be another way to feel. Over the weeks, as we work together to discard their old harmful brain pathways, replacing them with new life-affirming positive ways of thinking and being, they are amazed. Reprocessing old harmful thought patterns through Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a great therapeutic tool. They make changes and move forward with new balance and love for themselves and others. This is true for parents suffering from the loss of a child, domestic violence victims, veterans, and spousal death.

Grieving any deep loss can be overwhelming (esp. for the Highly Sensitive), whether it is the loss of a person, relationship, community, ability, career, dream, life path, opportunity or possession (to name only a few). Significant losses are never simple, nor singular, rather they involve a myriad of complex experiences & emotions and can feel all consuming at times. My approach involves attending to the core of the grief as well as the ways it ripples into all areas of your life. We will find ways that best support you in holding the intensity of the pain, & in your own time, retrieve the gifts and lessons of that which has passed so that you can open space for living well with the loss.

Dealing with grief and loss is something most people have to do sometime in their lives. Grief is a natural response to the loss of someone or something very dear to us. Losses that may lead to grief include the death or separation of a loved one, loss of a job, death or loss of a beloved pet, or any number of other changes in life such as divorce, becoming an "empty nester," or retirement. Anyone can experience grief and loss, but each person is unique in how he or she copes with these feelings.

Grief is a powerful emotion. It is hard to “just move on.” Part of you is lost. Grieving the loss of a loved one takes time and energy to heal the wounds. Even if we are expecting and know our loved one is in a better place, we feel the emptiness they once occupied. Sometimes the best healing is by talking about that person, life you had with them, and sharing memories. I will walk alongside you and help you move forward at your pace. Call, email, or text me today.
