In grief and loss feelings of isolation and aloneness along with shock and disbelief can cause us to shut down or deny the pain and emptiness inside. It is normal to have intense feelings or no feelings at all in the early stages of loss. When we cut off or deny our feelings we cut off the recovery process. As a therapist I provide a stable relationship that provides the opportunity to identify, feel, and express the variety of thoughts and feelings each client has. This allows the natural grieving process to progress and relieves the emotional pain caused by loss. Healing occurs when we feel connected to a stable accepting person who supports our unique way of coping with grief.

Does the moment of loss replay over and over in your mind, even months or years after the death? Do you find it hard to think about the good times without thinking about your loss? Do you feel like you are stuck and can’t move forward in your life? Are regret and guilt crippling your life? Healing grief and loss is about getting to a place of perfect peace where you can 1) think about your loved one's death without it being an open wound, 2) think about the good times you shared with them and truly enjoy each memory and 3) honor their life and the relationship you shared by developing a network of relationships that can continue to feed and nourish your soul as they once did.

I process with the client verbally the loss in regards to family of origin whether it be relatives, close friends, or work relationships. Over a period of sessions, the grief becomes less and less, and the client is able to concentrate on moving forward and letting go, and return to an active lifestyle both emotionally and physically. I provide for a safe environment that leads to healing, support, and empathy.

Grief is often a deeply painful response to the loss of a loved one, including pets. The death of a loved one is often the most common way we think of loss, but many other significant changes in our lives can involve loss and therefore grief. Everyone experiences loss and grief at some time. It is a natural and normal experience. And the more significant the loss, the more intense the grief is likely to be. The experience of grief can leave you feeling alone, anxious, depressed, lonely, fatigued, and confused. However, a loss can also lead to a new way of thinking and perceiving life. Each of us experiences, reacts and expresses grief differently. For example, one person may withdraw and feel....

Dealing with the loss of a loved one is never easy but it doesn't have to devastate you either. My therapy approach is well suited to minimizing the negative effects of grief and loss while honoring the natural progression of emotions while adjusting to life without this person or this human function. I also provide a variety of resources for you so that you feel supported while you go through the process.

Grief is a reaction to loss that encompasses a range of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. It is experienced differently by each person according to his or her culture, background, gender, beliefs, personality, and relationship to the deceased. I work with clients to express the full range of feelings that may be present including sadness, yearning, guilt, regret, anger, and a sense of meaninglessness. Clients become more comfortable with their loss over time; the amount of time varies by person.

Clients experiencing loss are often at a cross roads, their life continues to move on but someone is missing from their day to day experiences. These clients may be struggling to understand how to live their life without the person they have lost. I like to work with clients as they learn how they can begin to move forward and live their life so they can honor and cherish their loved one's memory.
