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.

If you are suffering from grief and loss, please know that help is available. While you may always miss the person, animal, things, or places that you have lost, your feelings of despair can be greatly diminished. I use EMDR and other methods that often help people let go of much of the pain and be able to enjoy life. You do deserve to feel good again.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
