When we lose someone close to us, life may appear to be moving on without us. We often feel alone and unable to see a way through our grief. However, counseling can provide you with a safe place to work through your loss. Ultimately, counseling can help you see your way to a future. I have seen individuals and families work through their grief and become stronger on the other side of their loss.

Are you sad, mad, lonely or hurt? Is someone or something important to you gone. This can be the death of a loved one or a job, empty nest syndrome, a move or break-up of a significant relationship. Grief is a normal part of life but when pain and suffering lingers, I can help you make peace with your situation. Everyone handles this differently, and you can’t help how you feel, but you can do everything possible to feel your feelings, letting go what you can’t control and taking the best care of yourself. You'll have a safe place to express your feelings without being judged. You'll learn healthy ways to cope with the the pain and ways to minimize the suffering.

Clients benefit from a compassionate relationship where they have a context to explore the impact of the inevitable losses that happen to each of us eventually. Grieving is difficult for everyone, but it does not have to be debilitating. In fact, losses and grieving can be gentle (though sometimes relentless) teachers to form our characters into more loving, peaceful and happy people who journey gracefully with our own souls and those with whom we relate.

Little is harder than suffering a significant loss in our lives. Having a safe place to talk about that loss is an important component to healing. While we will never forget those that have been important to us, it is possible to learn to manage our feelings in a way that will minimize the symptoms of depression and anxiety that often accompany loss.

I believe there is an intensity to grief that is deeply overwhelming, but possible to navigate. Few understand this process and give quick, reductionistic answers to complex questions. I have experienced significant loss in my life, led grief recovery groups, and have worked alongside many who allow me to walk alongside them during this particularly vulnerable time. I enjoy existential and spiritual dialogue with those who are ready to dig in.

I affirm that your grief is unique and that you are "entitled" (A. Wofelt) to your grief. Grief can become complicated and even "messy" (A. Wofelt). You will never be criticized for how you are experiencing your grief. One of my favorite writers on the subject of grief, Alan Wofelt, said, "The capacity to love requires the necessity to grieve." He also asserted, that our grief is personal and determined by how close we were to the person we lost and how our love one died. We will take all the time you need ... you are on "new clock and new calendar" (A. Wofelt). Understanding grief and feeling safe while you explore and share your thoughts and feelings will do much to improve the intensity.

I work with clients to support them through grief and loss using Emotion Focused Therapy. Often this deep sadness is many years old and unacknowledged. When pain is too great, it is not possible to fully express it to oneself if there is not someone else with which to share the pain. Humans were designed to reach out to another in their grief. Unfortunately in our modern world, we are expected to be brief about our losses, to shrug them off and move on. I will support you to more fully allow yourself to experience this loss and sadness in safety so that you can truly process it.
