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.

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.

If you have had a loss in your life, it may seem like no one understands what you are going through. Those that care about you may not know what to say or what you need in your time of grief. 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.
