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.

Managing grief and loss is an immensely personal experience. First and foremost, I create a safe, warm and nurturing environment where a deep exploration of how loss has impacted your life can be safely discussed. After you feel comfortable, we will talk about how to rebuild your life after experiencing a significant change. While grief and loss is often associated with death; major life changes such as divorce, miscarriage, job loss or diagnosis of an illness can certainly result in similar feelings of overwhelm, sadness or difficult with daily living.

Grief counseling helps people cope with grief and mourning following the loss of a loved one or due to major life changes that trigger feelings of grief (i.e. job loss or divorce). It provides a space for individuals to work through and process the complex emotions surrounding loss. Healthy grieving results in remembering the loss with a newfound sense of peace, rather than searing pain.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Grief and loss is a normal part of human experience. We can too often rush to pathologize and/or attempt to get rid of the feelings of loss and grief, something to stay away from. However, letting our grief be, or letting ourselves simply experience grief, making it a normal experience can help us not only heal from loss but move forward and grow from our painful experiences.
