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.

Wading through the grief process can be a painful journey, however it is my hope to provide a place for you to work through the emotions that arise in order to truly find healing. The good news is I fully believe this is completely possible! When working with grief and loss counseling, my clients are given space to learn about the mourning process in order to grieve in a healthy, honoring way. This looks different for each person, however often it involves a combination of psychoeducation (learning about your experience) as well as open, safe space to process your unique emotions during this difficult, and at times, confusing, experience.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
