There are many types of losses that can have a major impact on our functioning and lead to feelings of grief. Deaths, separation and divorce, loss of a job, health issues, a child moving away, are examples of normal life situations that can be very painful to deal with. In my work, I compassionately try to help you understand the meaning of the "loss", and support you in healing and moving forward.

If you have recently lost a loved one, or find yourself still suffering from a past loss, therapy can help. Because grief is different for every person, you may find yourself feeling alone with your own emotions and thoughts about your loss. We will work together to understand what grieving means to you. We believe that grief and loss do not mean that you need to let go of the person and move on, rather that you need to find and understand your new relationship with the person that has died. During therapy you will share your memories, express your feelings in an empathetic environment, and learn how to cope with the challenges of losing a loved one.

The benefit of my approach for someone who is grieving and who has suffered a great loss is that I actively teach you how to accept things that cannot be changed. Only by achieving real acceptance can the individual carry on in life despite the loss. Acceptance in REBT does not mean liking or even denying the loss. Acceptance in REBT means to acknowledge that a great loss has occurred and to feel healthy negative feelings of sadness, even great sadness. The benefit that results is that one can still have some degree of enjoyment in life. One can function without guilt and do well in life despite having suffered a great loss. This is leverage over the loss, the thing that cannot be changed.

Grief can be all-consuming, a heavy gray cloud that envelops us and leaves us feeling disoriented and alone. We lose sight of the precious things around us, and instead find ourselves stung by grief's bitter winds and blinded by its dark fog. It is in those times that we need a helping hand to reach out to us through the gray, and walk alongside us when we don't know where our next step will land. Counseling is that walking alongside. Through therapy together, we learn how to be with both grief and life in tandem. We learn how to hold our sadness tenderly and with loving kindness, while also holding the joys and gifts of the present moment.

The grieving process can be different for every individual. It is also an opportunity to make meaning out of our loss. My approach is to help in the meaning making process and help with working toward a sense of acceptance. I have years of experience helping individuals through the grieving process and focus on how sense can be made of loss and how to grow through this painful human experience.

Grief and loss are inevitable in life, and can be our times of greatest pain, and also sometimes, greatest growth. Most people think first about the death of a loved one when they think about grief, but it also be the loss of a home, a friend, a marriage, a job, and so on. These events can sometimes also lead to profound grief. Often friends don't understand or know what to say. Sometimes, they even seem to disappear, when you're needing them most. You're not alone if you've experienced some of these phenomena. I'd like to help you through this painful time.

Whether you are grieving due to the death of a loved one, ending of a significant relationship or the loss of the life you expected, it is a process. We all grieve for different reasons & in different ways, but it is important to allow yourself to grieve so that you can move forward. I'll work with you to understand the grief process including the stages of grief. An important part of the process is helping you identify & express the variety of feelings & thoughts you are likely experiencing. Often, human instinct is to avoid or numb what is painful. Unfortunately, this can prevent healing, extend the pain & create other problems. Instead, I'd like to help you find your way through the pain.

Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief will be. The length of time in which one struggles with grief varies depending on the individual - there is no right or wrong time frame for grief. WalkinTalkinTherapy assist with moving through the grieve with the assistance of nature and light exercise while combining talk therapy.

Grief and Loss is an often overlooked experience of modern life. Death of a loved-one is usually when we acknowledge actively grieving. However, life is in many ways a series of losses (life shifts) and with each loss comes the necessity to grieve. When we do not navigate our losses with the process of actively grieving, each new loss compounds those that came before. Learning how to honour your heart as a source of strength and wisdom through loss - even though it's hurting - is your path to greater strength and resilience in life. Support is available through divorce/separation, ill health, unemployment, "empty nesters," loss of pet, trauma, loss of a relationship, moving, ageing.

Grief is an appropriate response to loss. While grief is often connected with death, grief can also be felt during periods of change. While counseling can't change what you're going through, talking with a therapist can. I listen and provide a space for you to grieve and explore the meaning of loss. In therapy, I respect your experience and honor your feelings.
