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.

Grief and loss counseling isn't always about losing a loved one. You can most certainly grieve the loss of relationships such as a dissolved marriage or family secrets. We often think about grief as something that happens to us after death of a loved one and while that is absolutely true it also holds true that when relationships end because of traumatic incidences such as infidelity, betrayal, divorce, separation, or abuse we have to grieve those losses too.

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.

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.

I support individuals to work through the stages of grief through telling one's story of loss in a way that leads to acceptance and healing. Sometimes a client will get 'stuck' in the form of depression which is then addressed as well. I often will use expressive arts directives that help a client to process the feelings in a non-verbal way that can be very effective.

Loss is experienced in a variety of ways: the death of a close friend or family member or the loss of a significant relationship. Grief can feel like a never ending cycle of unhappy and sad emotions. We frequently feel stuck and hopeless; as though the pain in unending. I work with people who struggle with grief and loss. I assist them with process the stages of grief and reclaiming control of their life.

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.

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.

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.

I have studied the grieving process. I have personally experienced the unexpected loss of two sons and a grandson, so I can empathize with those find themselves in this situation. In addition, I was caretaker to family members who took an expected, but longer journey to heaven. Thus, I have an understanding emotionally and academically of the grieving process which has provided me with the tools to assist others.

Grief is not a linear process. It is something that has many levels, filters and meandering pathways. After losing someone or something people often say, "Get over it" or "Move on." If you could you would. And sometimes you may not want to. If you want help navigating this pathway in your life, I offer tools to go through it versus trying to get over it or ignore it, giving you space to explore and express. Amazing things happen when people are given loving presence.
