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.

I create a safe, warm, caring atmosphere so that you can share the painful, feelings of grief and loss you are experiencing. Sometimes these feelings are quite normal and sometimes traumatic. They can even generate feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. My clients learn to shift their perceptions and attitudes and see the profound opportunity for healing, growth, transition and change. They learn to choose peace over conflict, forgiveness over grievances and light over darkness. In addition to safety and caring I offer you a wide variety of therapeutic tools and techniques (cognitive, emotional, behavioral, energetic, relational and spiritual) to greatly accelerate your healing pro

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.

You can grow from grief. I can help you build the skills to better manage your loss. Grief has no infinite definition. There is grief associated with death. The death may be sudden, or it may be due to a long term illness. There is grief associated with relationship loss. This may be due to separation, divorce or loss of friendship. Catastrophic loss may be loss of a job, financial status, accident or medical illness. You can move on and grow from your experience.

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.

Experiencing a difficult loss is disorienting and can feel paralyzing. It can also bring up pain from the past that you thought was long gone, or cause you to question your view of the world. This is difficult but normal. It is important to talk about your grief with someone who really understands. I offer a safe place to work through your grief in your own way, without rushing, without having to put on a pretend smile or a brave face. I cannot undo your loss, but therapy can help you begin to find meaning in it, to make sense of the world again, and to find practical ways to cope.

Loss, separation, and good-byes are all a part of life. These times can be forced upon us such as times of death, illness, and loss of employment. At other times it can be more of a celebration, as when we move to a new job, house, or school. Yet, all are times of reflection, remembering, loss, and permanent change; times that elicit a variety of emotional responses. If recent “good-byes” are heavier than you want, and would like someone to walk with you, to create a safe place to share your loss and reexamine your level of grief, please allow my Family Life Counseling to support you during this heavy time of change.

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.

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.

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.
