I have had 25 years of experience counseling persons in grief and loss. Even though grief is painful, I remind clients that it is not forever as I help them understand the various aspects and the process. It can be healing to know that you are not going through the whole thing alone. Sometimes loss stirs up other issues, but usually it doesn't, and can be negotiated more quickly than the initial pain seems to indicate. Sometimes working with the body is very helpful in loss, and I help clients relese tension they may not have been aware of. I am here to be present, to be a guide and to help you through the entire process.

Grief is part of life, occurring anytime we lose something precious to us. Obviously when we lose loved ones, but also from losing pets, friendships, jobs - even hopes or dreams. Since everyone experiences loss, learning to manage grief is important to live life fully. Otherwise even small losses may automatically cause debilitating sadness by connecting to our unresolved grief. Often even caring friends or family become uncomfortable if you express grief to them, because it triggers unfinished grief in their own life. Professional counselors understand the grief process and are prepared to stay fully present with you, as you move through these deeply challenging times of life.

Whether it is a family member, friend, or pet, losing a loved one is always difficult. Loss can also be experienced when we end an intimate relationship or are disconnected from a loved one. Each of us is unique in our grief process. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. Recovering from grief takes time. A counselor can help in processing the feelings associated with grief by providing a listening ear, guidance, support, and tools for recovery.
