The pain of grief always passes with expression, not avoidance. Counseling grants you permission to grieve. Grieving in the presence of another person is more restorative that grieving alone, but often times friends or family may unknowingly inhibit your grief. Counseling removes all expectations and pressures, allowing your grief to come on its own. Grief counseling makes room for emotions you may not expect, know how to explain, or may feel guilty about. Your expression of grief will ease your pain and make life seem livable again.

Specializing in the grief and loss issues associated with divorce. I am dedicated to helping marriages heal. Unfortunately 50% of ALL marriages still end in divorce. I have witnessed first hand the devistation and complicated grief caused by the litigation system. I offer a specilized mediation process with a divorce attorney who co-mediates because I believe that individual and relational healing can only occur when divorce is amicable, friendly and puts children first. I also treat grief and loss associated with infertility, and death. I provide a safe environment to process your thoughts and feelings about your loss.

Grief is a powerful emotion which can color everything you see. Being able to process the loss and create for yourself a "new" life, incorporating the loss into your new life story is a path I will walk with you. Loss may change how you view yourself and your world. You may feel "things will never be the same"--but your life is enriched with the experience of the one you loved and lost. We will weave that into your new idea of your life and how you move on with living.

Grief and loss is, unfortunately, a normal part of living. There is no single "correct" way to grieve: different cultures and even individuals from the same culture grieve differently. The only consistent feature is that grief takes time. The most effective thing anyone can do for someone grieving is to be thereā€”to listen, to empathize, to walk along with the grief. There is no "fixing" grief. But counseling can help prevent normal grief from developing into major depression or other mental health conditions.

Grieving the loss of a loved one, whether through death or the end of a relationship is likely the most painful emotional experience you will have in your lifetime. The very things you do to cope with grief, may prolong it. For example, trying to move past it too quickly or distracting yourself from the pain may actually create more pain. What's more, is that when you suffer a profound loss, other losses you haven't fully grieved may come to the surface. It can feel overwhelming. Despite all the pain of grief, it can be enormously healing. Facing the pain of your life can open pathways in your psyche that enriches your experience. You don't have to face it all by yourself.

Grief is a part of the human experience and sometimes comes in unexpected circumstances. We experience grief, not just when we lose someone in our lives, but also when we experience loss of any kind.
