Each person moves through grief and loss at their own unique pace. There are no rules. It can be like both a roller coaster with ups and downs and a wave, rolling back and forth. I provide a safe place to feel and work through the pain and ways to hold onto the treasures that were formerly present in that which is now lost. Grief is universal, in that it touches each persons life. It is unique in that we move through it in our own way. I will support you in your unique journey toward healing.

Grief is hard. Grief is natural. Animals grieve. Grief is something we feel deep in our bodies and can be disorienting and destabilizing. Grief brings up questions about who we are, the world, the existence or goodness of God, and purpose and futility of life. Dealing with grief, especially when the loss is traumatic and unexpected, requires a slow and tender space to allow the grief to move through our body and to settle in our hearts with warmth and memory. I am here to help you grieve the loss of your loved one, experience, health , future or even your beloved pet. .

I work with clients facing grief and loss by allowing them to work through the often confusing and overwhelming feelings of shock, denial, bargaining, sadness and acceptance. The stages of grief do not fit a linear pattern and it is normal to vacillate between feelings and sometimes to regress. Together, we sort through the emotions in order to move towards a path of acceptance and the allowance of future joy.

Grey Matters International and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D approaches issues of grief & loss through the lens of innovation----instead of growing the same neural networks responsible for the pain in weekly therapy sessions, we reset the brain to move forward quicker and efficiently by working on the stuck limbic system so as to empower the person with more success and traction. For no one wants to stay in a grief mode for too long; but when you don’t include the brain in your work with someone, you risk describing the water to them while they drown and calling it success.

My approach to counseling grief and loss is to provide a calm, safe environment in which individuals who are experiencing grief are encouraged to allow themselves to grieve. I guide the grieving person in the sometimes difficult process of giving themselves "permission" to grieve. By helping the person overcome the barriers to the appropriate expression of grief feelings, the healing process can move forward. They also learn that it is not only normal to grieve, but also emotionally healthy.

Grief is a natural part of a full life, but experiences of loss can still leave us feeling empty and hopeless. I've walked through the dark valleys of grief with countless individuals over my 20 plus years of practice, and helped them draw on their emotional and spiritual resources to find renewed energy for life. Even the most traumatic losses can lead to places of deep joy and contentment.

Men, sometimes we just feel we need to be the strong one - the one others lean on. But, there comes a time when we need to grieve also...to experience and express the loss we have had. Easy? No. Necessary? Yes. And, we often do not have a role model on how to do this: that is where I come in. I can be your guide on how to process the loss and learn to live going forward. Give me a call and we can talk about how I can help.
