Grieving is a gift from God to us to manage our loss. It is normal, and it is progressive, and its character changes with time. But sometimes the grieving process stalls, and we do not progress, we can get stuck. We will use Narrative/story therapy, work on forgiveness, the tangled web model, and other tools to begin to unravel the roadblock.

I use a variety of techniques with persons dealing with grief and loss depending on client's circumstances, level of trauma, faith base, and support system. Healing Prayer is always a part of my work with grief, but I also use imagery, mindfulness techniques, stress and trauma reduction, and emotional memory reconstruction. I have trained under Courtney Armstrong, LPC in transforming traumatic grief in situations of sudden or violent death of a loved one and tend to have good success in a relative short period of time.

Grief is a natural process, resulting from love. However, if grief becomes overwhelming, or it becomes "stuck," having someone to assist can be helpful. My approach to "walk beside" the grieving person, so that the experience is not overwhelming, nor is it repressed. A healthy grief process should move one eventually toward a place of gratitude, forgiveness, and peace.
