Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
It is almost impossible for any of us to go through life without experiencing one or a series of losses. It could be a death, the end of a romantic relationship, loss of a job, being turned down by a university, or any other form of loss. Any type of loss can produce understandable feelings of sadness, shock, anger, difficulty sleeping, and confusion. When we experience loss, we go through various stages of grieving. I am specifically trained and have considerable experience helping people navigate through their experiences of loss and the grieving. Having experienced several losses in my own life, I have a good idea about what works and what doesn't.

When we are going through grief, we need someone to be present with us in our pain. We need someone who will sit with us in our experience and help us name what is happening, because it doesn't always make sense. The swirl of thoughts and emotions and how it is affecting us needs to be heard and allowed to be present. We don't always get that from family or friends, or we have responsibilities with them that makes it complicated. Here, you can just be you, with all the mess and heartache, and you will have unlimited tissues, coping skills, support, guidance, and discover meaning through the process.

My aim as a grief and loss therapist is to come alongside my clients with compassion and a listening ear. It is amazing to see how sharing ones story with a caring and attentive listener can lead to healing and growth. While many well intentioned friends may offer advise on how to move forward, my perspective is to help my clients grieve in a healthy way by offering a supportive environment where they are free to express what they are really thinking and feeling without judgement. While sharing their story of loss many also find hope and meaning in the midst of their grief.
