Most individuals experience loss and grief at some point in their life. Losses that often lead to grief include loss of a loved one, job, divorce, retirement or loss of a beloved pet. I’ve completed Loss and Grief Training and can offer extra insight and compassion to those struggling to cope with loss or grief. I can assist individuals and families in gaining a better understanding of grief and will help them to learn and identify the stages of grief and to fully express feelings and emotions. Individuals will be aware of healthy coping strategies and those that delay the grieving process. Individuals will learn that dealing with sorrow takes time, but with time and perseverance, they can properly morn their loss and heal.

No matter how much you may want to, you cannot return to your "pre-loss" state--the person you were before the loss. My work with you will center on helping you to adapt to life after the loss. It is important for you to realize that everyone grieves differently, so don't you compare your grief journey to someone else's, and don't let others do it to you. Come in and let's have a talk and we'll see what we can do to make life better for you, and we will laugh while we do it!

Grief and loss is one of the most difficult things to deal with in life. Whether it is a loss of a family member, ending of a relationship or marriage, or a friendship ending, loss is loss and can be difficult to handle. There are many stages to grieving and learning more about the stages and understanding them can help you feel confident that mourning is healthy and a natural part of life.

Grieving is a normal process filled with pain. Sometimes the process can be made easier by talking to a someone. People who are grieving the loss of a loved one or the loss of a relationship are often confused about the meaning of the loss and have raw emotions just below (or sometimes directly on) the surface. I provide three things: 1) a compassionate place to talk about the loss, 2) ways to figure out what the loss means to you, and 3) ways to take the loving memories of the person in your heart while you manage to move on with life with a healthy sadness rather than intense despair.

Grief & Loss are a part of life. No one escapes them, yet our experiences with grief and loss are each unique and painful. As a therapist I first encourage suffering clients to be patient with themselves and provide them with skills to work with well-meaning--but not always helpful--family and friends. There is no one right method of grieving. I work with each client to help them identify what their needs are: perhaps it is someone to listen to them share memories of the person who is gone, or it may be just being there as they mourn silently. What is important is that you accept your feelings nonjudgmentally.

Loss occurs in everyone, sometimes it is expected, sometimes not. It can be helpful to have someone to help put things in perspective and to find a "New" normal functioning. Grief and Cognitive -Behavioral therapies, with the guidance of a therapist, can help individuals make adjustments in living and thinking about the loss, and move on with life using healthy coping skills.
