Each person feels loss in a unique way. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, no time limit, no emotion that is inappropriate. There are many different kinds of loss, not just the loss of a loved one. Perhaps you are grieving the loss of a pet, a relationship that ended, a child moving away, a close friendship, the home you've lived in for many years, a long-term career or job. Perhaps you've experienced a miscarriage, a personal or family health crisis or chronic illness, a child born with health problems. Any loss that is significant to you is important. If you feel stuck in handling a loss, I can help you process your feelings and move through grief to a more peaceful place.

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.

Loss can be devastating and tragic. Whether the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, losing a job or home, or even letting go of a role or identity that no longer suits you, loss can rattle us to the core and disrupt every corner of our lives. What can we do when our lives are shaken? Often we try to brush ourselves off and push on, or find that no one really understands and we feel terribly alone. But you do not have to go through this alone. It is important to give yourself space, time, and support for the many feelings and experiences that accompany such significant changes. Together we will discover what you need to care for and work through this important time in your life.

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.

People experience grief and loss in many different ways and for many different reasons. Losing a loved one to death is only one way. We can also suffer grief and loss through divorce, loss of a job, decline in health or functioning, and through the loss of innocence and or safety caused by abuse, neglect, or violent acts. Allow me to journey with you through this difficult time.

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.

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.

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 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.
