Suffering loss can result in a mix of strong emotions such as sadness, anger, confusion, and regret. I lost my mother in my twenties, so I can relate to the overbearing range of emotions you might deal with. You can benefit from my first-hand experience, along with learned counseling techniques that can help you find peace. Personally, I learned that my feelings of sadness and loss meant that I loved my mother, and that she had a stronger impact on my life than I realized. I’ll always miss my mother, but I’ve found ways to deal with the loss by honoring her memory, and helping others who are struggling in this way. Talking with someone who understands can help you tremendously.

Loss can be found in almost every experience - even the most positive changes in life ask us to let go of something, something we are familiar with, something that - for good or ill - is part of us. Loss can create confusion and discontent and other defeating patterns that can keep you stuck, blocking the sometimes frightening yet relieving, healing flow of grief - grief that can lead you to new hope and renewed or expanded meaning in life. With this in mind, as you are able, we'll explore what loss you have experienced or are currently facing in your particular situation or life story, and thus find our way to your heart and soul where grieving can open up space for hope and new perspective

How do you move on when desire, hope, a loved one, or the something core to you has been lost? I am hesitant to answer that question in words because I think that there are no cognitive solutions to loss. You may have experienced this. In some ways, the only way to work with the grief is to go straight through it. It is a difficult journey, one you may have just entered or one you may have found yourself in for years. I offer a caring hand in your journey through it.

Grief may arise due to the loss of a loved one, a break-up of an emotionally intimate relationship, loss of a pet, loss of a job, and many other life events. Everyone experiences grief and loss in their own unique way. It is often accompanied by sadness, irritability, guilt, regret, anger and many other feelings. Whether you are experiencing any of these feelings or symptoms, or simply are having difficulty in your daily functioning, I can help to wade through the stressors causing you grief by teaching coping skills that you can use on your own.

I am particularly practiced at helping clients work through the kinds of grief and loss that result from life-long or acquired disability and chronic, life-threatening or terminal illness. My professional interest in this area stems from my personal experiences with a life-long disability and, more recently, a chronic illness. I use Emotion Focused, Existential, mindfulness-based, and other strategies to help my clients gain access to their feelings regarding their losses and figure out how to live the richest life possible given their particular circumstances.

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.

Working with people experiencing grief I want to help illuminate all aspects of it, including past grief that has gone unresolved. Each grief causing event has a life cycle. And while most grief is never 100% worked through, the less it it has been processed the more it piggybacks on the next event as a layering effect. Just understanding this can help make sense of our feelings. This is a starting point.

Is grief making it difficult to function in daily life, leaving you unable to enjoy living? Are you feeling overwhelmed by excessive bitterness, guilt or anger? Do you find yourself withdrawing from friends and family with near constant feelings of despair? If you find you answered yes to several or all of these questions, your grief may have evolved into clinical depression and it may be time to seek help. Be gentle with yourself, knowing there is no right or wrong way to grieve and all of your feelings are normal, even if it feels like you're going crazy. I will help you to understand what is happening to you and walk beside you as you move through your very personal grieving process.

Everyone experiences loss. Sometimes losses are profound when they impact us to the core: loss of spouse, family member, job, opportunity, finances, time, dignity, or self-esteem. My family and I had to put down a longtime family pet recently and were surprised at the sorrow that initiated. When someone experiences significant loss they often journey through predictable stages of grief and subconsciously accomplish central tasks in given stages before progressing forward to the next stage. If you are experiencing grief or loss but feel "stuck" or segregated from others due to your unique situation talking to someone trained can help you walk towards hope.

Living with grief is a marathon. And every marathoner needs support and care along the way. Grief has and is changing you. How it changes you, and what road your grief takes you down is still to be determined. I see grief as a cocoon. A cocoon that we can nurture together so at the other side of grief you can come out - still you - although changed. It is a process that is earth shattering, but you do not have to be alone. Your resilience is there - waiting to guide you.

Grief is a normal and natural process that we all go through when we lose something near and dear to us; a loved one, the loss of a job, a pet, an opportunity or promotion, a friendship, or anything really, that brings an emotional response of sadness and loss to it. Working with a counselor in therapy can be a vital tool, to help process through the painful feelings associated with grief & loss. As a grief counselor, I can help make the the journey a little shorter and perhaps a little less difficult.
