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 there—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.

Loss is the inevitable that takes us by surprise. The surprise is that it actually happened and then the mysterious journey can be very confusing. Ranging from feeling like you are on a roller coaster to feeling mired in depths of sadness. This journey is made all the more complex if the relationship was unresolved or conflicted. Loss is inevitable and everyone faces it. There is no one path. Many people will believe their is one path and then expect you to be on it or over it. Your path is your path. It is unique and it might have unique stumbling blocks. Your not alone.

I know personally how devastating grief is. When we lose someone or a relationship we love, it feels as if we will not be able to ever recover. Sometimes we get stuck. With a directed grief approach, you can learn how to manage your loss and move through the process. By discussing your feelings and understanding about grief, we will release the pain more quickly and retain what was beautiful, helping you move towards acceptance.

Losing a loved one, a person, a pet is like losing a part of ones self. Coping with loss is not a simple, cookbook process. No one can tell you how to manage and while some people talk about "stages of grief" it will never be that simple. Some people can find solace in their religious faith, their faith's scriptures, their faith's rituals, their faith communities. For others these resources sound and feel hollow. They need a person or people to walk with them and talk with them on the journey after death, separation or loss. I am willing to work with you throughout that process.

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. Contact Grey Matters International, Inc now at email@example.com or 877-606-6161.

Everyone experiences grief differently. And everyone expresses grief differently. My first priority is to understand the very personal meaning of each loss that is shared with me. I strive to provide an environment that feels safe for sharing the feelings of a deep personal loss. Affirming the validity of someone's emotional pain can lead to profound healing.

Experiencing grief and loss is difficult and often heartbreaking. We can experience grief when we lose a loved one, pet, or significant other. We can even experience grief and loss when we lose a job or hobby that we love. Without support, grief and loss can leave you feeling hopeless. We are often pressured to "hurry up and get over it" in our busy society, and I am here to tell you that the grieving process has no time line and is individual to each person and loss. Allow me to help you through this hard time with empathy and experience.

I have worked with grief and loss in both individual and group settings. Each person's grieving is completely unique, and each loss we experience will be felt differently even between our own experiences. Whether you need to focus on telling the story of your loss, want to be able to learn new skills and self care, or are interested in working on your next steps forward, we can explore and process your loss and your own needs.

Losing a loved one can be detrimental and life altering and there is no designated time by which you should be "over it". Learning to live with your grief can take time and my role in this journey of yours would be to "walk" with you as you walk into a new reality for you. Grief can be hard to recognize and acknowledge. Losing a job, a promotion, a pet, a relationship or a dream might leave you feeling angry, sad and hopeless. I am here to offer a safe place to discuss all these feeling and help you make peace and create a new dream.

I utilize IPT techniques to help client's express and validate their reactions to loss (whether it be the loss of a loved one or pet, or the loss of a job or relationship). My goal is to help clients grieve in a way that is healthy for them and to focus on their future and the benefits of their new roles.

I believe that losses are not something we just "get over" or "move on" from. Grief is a process that takes time and action. I believe losses are something that, with proper support, we learn to live with. I help people learn to live with their loss by listening, normalizing, supporting and offering suggestions.
