Every one suffers grief at any type of loss. Some are obvious, i.e. death of a spouse, child, or family member or friend. Other types of loss are not so easily defined, i.e. job loss, relationship loss, or even some security issues. The client will benefit from understanding the stages of grief and how to cope with the loss in a Biblical way. Practical and relevant application of Biblical principles are given with clear instructions on how to approach healing and recovery.

With all the opportunities and blessings life has to offer, we also ultimately must face grief and loss. The losses we experience may involve a loved one, a spouse, a child, a parent or a friend. The loss of our health, job, dreams and other hopes we have for our lives or the lives of those we love, all leave us in shock, pain, fear, anger and at times with a sense of hopelessness. It is at these seemingly impossible times that support, understanding and healing is so important for each of us to reach out for and allow someone to accompany us on that journey toward greater peace and acceptance.

We are told that grief is a process and that there is a specific way to "successfully" grieve. Every client's life experience is different and this deeply affects how they experience grief and loss. Therapy provides a safe place to process these complex emotions. Let me help you find a way to say goodbye and find renewed meaning in your own life.

Whether your heart has been broken by a death, a divorce, a move, or the loss of a friendship, Grief is the natural and normal reaction to significant emotional loss. Each person experiences grief in a personal and private way. Most of us have not been given the skills to deal with grief. We struggle to find a "new normal." Our goal is to help you process the grief you are feeling, to provide you with the tools you need to do so, and to provide you with a warm and caring environment in which to do so. Together, we can focus on recovery from the emotional pain and heartache. We will be your companion on your journey through the wilderness of grief

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.

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.
