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.

I have been honored to work with many people who have lost a dear relationship. This is a pain where the circumstances cannot change, the loss is real and fundamentally changes the person who has experienced that loss. However, not all is lost and you still have a life to live. Often, people need someone outside of their friend/family group to process through the waves of anger and denial, guilt and fear. I like to remind my clients that grief will cycle through, but with each cycle they are growing stronger, standing on the gift of their loved ones' life and honoring them in their healing. You can heal and your loved one will not be forgotten.

Many times surprising emotions come up after a loss. Often much guilt, regret, anger and blame contribute to thoughts of what we could or should have done differently. These thoughts keep taking up space in the mind and stop us from processing and coming to terms with loss. I help clients during this difficult time by listening empathetically and using methods that help clients grieve in a healthy productive way. I help client find self-compassion, forgiveness and hope during this time time of adjustment.

Just as each loss is unique, each grieving experience is unique. From the loss of a family member, job, marriage, physical function, or other, it is hard to anticipate grief or prepare for it. Through learning about grief itself and fully "sitting-in" the emotions that occur, grief is meant to be experienced. Preventing or interrupting this experience can add length or permanently prolong negative effects.

Grief and loss are very challenging. The difficulty of processing these complex emotions is compounded due to the fast paced nature of our lives pushing us forward, not providing the space and time for the necessary reflection. In order to move forward, we need time to grieve what has been lost. Our work begins with addressing the loss currently burdening your heart. It continues with examining the depth of the loss and its various levels of impact on your life. For example, losing one's mother could also mean the loss of a confidant, a cheerleader, a friend, an advocate etc. Finally, we will work together through the stages of your grief, supplementing with reading material when necessary.

I have learned that grief and loss are experienced very uniquely from client to client. There is no linear path to improvement. Working through grief and loss is not about recovery but about finding ways to incorporate the learnings into a new version of yourself. There are ways to be proactive and tools available that can help you through this process.

When there is a loss of a loved one, or a change in your life that feels overwhelming, grief counseling is an opportunity for healing and resolution. Through contemplation and understanding there is a letting go that naturally occurs. In time, the depression and pain are replaced with peace of mind. You discover how to move on with confidence and ease.

Moving through grief and loss is a process. Often loss creates a change and that change can affect you on many levels. Your loss can impact you physically, emotionally; it may alter your identity, your dreams and leave you with thoughts of what should have or what would have been. When I work people experiencing grief and loss, we begin by witnessing the loss, learning what it means to you and how it has changed your life. Depending upon the loss and the person, we will find ways to support and help you manage your pain and your life as you move through the process.

You do not need to be alone with your grief. Together we can chart a path that will greatly reduce your pain and help you naturally process emotion, thought, and physical sensations that may be held in your body and mind. Although loss is a part of life, when we are not able to fully process these experiences we can become stuck and unable to create joyful relationships or feel happy in our daily lives. Feeling bad, angry, numb, or depressed can be a symptom of being stuck in the grieving process. Our society expects us to "get over it" when we actually need much longer to come to a place of acceptance. I provide a compassionate healing space to resolve your losses and return to life.

When grief and loss hit, life can feel unbearable. When this happens, we sometimes try to avoid our painful feelings, but this never works for long and can lead to unhealthy ways of coping. As hard as it is, the way to heal from loss is to lean into the pain instead of running away from it. I provide a safe place for my clients to heal and move through their pain so they can fully engage in life again.

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.

Death of a loved one or loss of something significant in your life can creep up in ways you hadn't expected. My holistic way of looking at your situation and compassionate presence can help you explore your feelings and allow you deeper freedom to get through this difficult time. Finding the right fit with a counselor is of utmost importance. For that reason, if a client visits with me for the first visit and decides he or she does not want to continue on with me, that first session is absolutely free.

You're sad and you don't know why. You cry and are confused. There are areas in your life where you have lost much and you don't know how to grieve it, or where to go to get help. You've heard well meaning friends tell you the pad answers, but you really just want someone to hold you and make it go away. Therapy is a sense of "emotional holding" that helps those feelings make more sense and as opposed to those feelings going away, we learn how to live within our grief and loss when we explore it.

We examine the issues surrounding your grief and or loss, and then look at ways you can gain some healing. Much of this is through insight, reframing, exercises by way of homework, and other ideas that come from you. The process of moving through grief and loss takes time, and its important to be compassionate with yourself and allow yourself experience the span of emotions that are likely to occur.

Grief is a difficult issue for all of us because it looks differently for everyone. However, there are some common themes in how we grieve as men and women. If you or someone you know is grieving and finding it difficult to acknowledge their grief or know what to do next, therapy is the best place to explore how they might grieve fully and in so doing, be able to move forward in life.

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

When a family loses somebody it can take a huge toll on its members and how they relate to each other. You don't have to do this alone. I can help you navigate the rough waters of staying together after a loss. When a couples loses a child, the grief is particularly intense and can impact all areas of life. I help find support groups so they won't feel so alone in this dark time.

There is no right way too grieve, no right amount of time to do it in, and no way of avoiding it. It is common for a person to withdraw from their friends and family, feel overwhelmed and helpless to the intense waves of emotions—sadness, anger, fear, anxiety, and numbness. When the emotional intensity becomes too much, we don’t seem to be able to move forward with life. I offer grief therapy to help you find ways to cope with grief and mourning following the death of loved ones, pregnancy loss, or the mourning that often comes along with major life changes.

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.
