Grief and Loss Counseling
Loss is hard.
There are no words that can mask it. Whether it is a person, a job, a relationship, a pet, or our independent skills and abilities – when something or someone we’ve come to rely on goes away, it can severely disrupt our lives.
It has been said that the only thing that remains constant in this world is change. Even when we plan for it, change is tough.
The feelings that surface and the adjustments that are required can feel overwhelming.
We still have to live our lives.
We have our children, our jobs and a thousand other responsibilities that we are expected to maintain during our mourning.
Sometimes we experience a complicated grief that is intense or interferes a great deal with the ability to manage daily life.
It does not improve over time. It remains acute, and can involve intrusive memories, intense physical feelings, and the sense of being stuck. It can even be experienced as completely numb.
There’s power in your vulnerability.
Each of our journeys are individual and different yet we can strive to heal and learn from the experience. I have observed that grief can open the heart, and one of my goals as a grief counselor is to help you find comfort and meaning during your difficult times.
As a therapist with extensive experience assisting people through grief and loss, it might help to know that the fears, strong emotions and physical symptoms that accompany loss are normal.
While we cannot change the past, we will work together to find the support you need right now and the strength and motivation for the challenges you face.
Give yourself the support you need.
I have over 20 years of extensive experience working with children, adults and families who are grieving the loss of a loved one.
If you are looking for professional support, patience and guidance through a loss or other difficult situation, I can provide a safe space where you can release and process your grief.
