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.

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 loss of someone we love is one of the most difficult experiences we go through in life. When children loose a loved one at a young age, they have tons of questions of what death is. Parents often times struggle to respond in a way that is developmentally appropriate. In working with grief and loss, I help your child process the emotions around death in an age-appropriate way. They're able to have the space to understand what happened, while also learning that death (and the grief that comes with it) is a natural part of life that we must learn to cope with. After working with me, your child will be able to understand and cope with death in a healthy and meaningful way.

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.

Each person grieves differently and it is my job to help you discover what will work best for you. A nonjudgmental, empathic approach is crucial during grief and loss counseling. Finding ways to cope and heal can be difficult to do alone and I am willing to help you feel more at ease and comforted during this time of pain. Through talk therapy, relaxation and breathing practices and reflecting exercises, this experience can become more manageable and healing can begin.

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.

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.

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 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.

Grieving and loss is part of life. While we all share aspects of this life event, it is an individual experience and needs to be addressed with care and respect. It is an opportunity for individual growth and it can have an impact on our relationships to others including siblings and spouses as well as many aspects of our life including the spiritual dimension of our being and our questioning of the meaning of life. Sometimes it is useful to work with narrative, memories and dreams. There is not one way to feel, to act or to be as one grieves. It just is.
