Losing someone we love is painful. Loss that is left unprocessed, beneath the radar of our hearts, however, can seriously impact our personal lives and key relationships. Grief that is felt and expressed, on the other hand, can strengthen and enrich life. While there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there are essential ways to make grieving a meaningful experience.

We offer support to face grief, understand it, follow the innate mourning process, and integrate the change into life and your sense of self. We offer a safe place to explore the range of emotions which accompany loss, which really matters when friends and family don’t know how to stay with and witness the pain and sorrow.

When a loved one exits your life, chaos enters. People tell you they know how you feel, but you know the truth: the grief response is unique to each individual. No one can crawl into your head and truly get your experience of loss. And reconciling your life with a loved one's death is overwhelming. Yet it can be done. It won't be easy, but change is possible. I learned this truth from my own experience of grief that began with the unexpected death of my husband. If my thoughts resonate with you, contact me. We can discuss your concerns and determine if I'm a good fit. You don't have to walk this road of loss alone.
