Most often, I find that individuals may seek out counseling for a variety of reasons only to gradually discover that what is at the core of the problem is a failure to have grieved primary as well as secondary losses that have been experienced. I use a variety of therapeutic activities, such as games, handouts and worksheets to help a client work through his/her losses to once again find healing, peace and joy in and from life.

I can help you with the grief process in a gentle and loving way to help you honor and remember your loved one. I offer a safe, warm environment where you can be relaxed in talking out your loss.

While grieving is a healthy and normal life experience, it can also be hard, lonely, and confusing. Loved ones don't always know how best to support us. The unpredictable nature, intensity, and sheer variety of emotions we experience may make us feel like strangers to ourselves. In my work, I help clients to cope with the impact grief has on their moods, behaviors, thoughts, beliefs, physical well-being, relationships, work, and sense of self. I act as a compassionate guide, teacher, and deep listener as clients find their way through the pain of loss to a sense of healing. We may use written exercises, creative arts, or create rituals, according to a client's needs and wishes.

Losing someone, finding yourself in a new family situation, having to move to a new home, losing something valued, can be traumatic and deeply troubling. The base of a person's reaction to loss is often times grief. How do we deal with the emotions which are created by that loss, how do we continue on in the new situation, how do we cope with all of this, especially when we feel so lost? Working to discover and release those negative emotions associated with grief and loss has been found to be a very successful way. Utilizing the most successful approaches, I help individuals, couples, and families learn how to use the internal resources they already have to overcome grief and loss.

All of us are going to experience loss at some point in our lives and have to go through the grieving process. It doesn't have to be just the loss of a loved one as it can for example, be the loss of a relationship(s) or the loss of a job/career that is upsetting. I also know that there is no time limit to how long a person is allowed to grieve. I help people go through the 5 stages of grief using cognitive behavioral therapy to challenge thinking that will help a person move forward.

Grief and Loss can be one of the most difficult struggles an individual will face. It is a natural human response that every person will know at some point in their lifetime. How an individual is supported as they maneuver the grieving process can make the difference between mindful acceptance and continued suffering. If you find the grieving process is making it difficult to function after a loss, talking to a therapist can help empower a person to negotiate more effective recovery.

Feelings of grief and loss are normal--up to a point. When a client comes for help because their grief is interfering with their lives beyond a reasonable mourning period, it is often caused by the "loose strings" and uncompleted issues in a relationship which now can never be healed. My goal in helping people with grief involves helping them to accept their loss by living the life their loved one would want them to live and, in doing so, to honor the highest values of their loved one--whose voice is now living within the client.

Much of life is about dealing with loss. We learn a great deal about ourselves by how we respond to these losses. Often, we do not allow ourselves the time to grieve. Due to this, we often find ourselves overwhelmed with emotions at a single loss, because it triggers years of accumulated losses. I work with clients to help them find closure and a way to move forward into their life.

Losing someone you have loved is very painful. Many difficult emotions may arise such as fear, anger, shock, uncertainty about your own mortality, guilt, etc. It is normal and natural to go through a period of time where you feel the loss at a very deep level. It is important to let yourself feel the loss instead of avoiding or coping with it in unhealthy ways. It is also important to know that these feelings will lessen, and you may find that your loss may turn into an opportunity for deep discovery. Everyone is different; therefore, everyone’s length of time and style of grieving is different. But, there is no shame in asking for support if you feel your grief is causing a significant chan
