Grief, Loss, and Bereavement

We come into this world as innocents, dependent on our parental caregivers for nourishment, safety and security, and it is through these early connections and the meanings they hold for us that we venture through life establishing new connections,  new relationships.

As we turn to these new relationships to provide mental and emotional nourishment, safety and security, and a sense of belonging, we create new meanings and possibilities.

It is through our relationships that we experience joy and sadness, pleasure and pain, love, jealousy and hate, frustration and anger, to name a few.  And when some of our relationships end, we may experience loss through grief.

Loss is a very personal experience, and so is our process of grieving.   Grief can be experienced through sadness, anger, confusion, loneliness or feelings of emptiness or being in a fog.   The loss may be so painful that it feels like your heart has been ripped to pieces.  You may believe that you are living a dream from which you will eventually wake up. The process of grieving can be relatively short for some people, while long and hard for others.  

You don’t have to go it alone

Let me help you get your life back…

Let’s take this journey together

Whether experiencing the loss or death of friends or family members, or loss associated with changes in life circumstances, adjustment may be difficult or scary as one’s sense of identity becomes challenged.  Though people around you may empathize with your loss and try to offer what they consider to be helpful advice or suggestions, you may find yourself mentally and emotionally drained, or overwhelmed, as you try to pick up the pieces of your broken heart and move forward.

Having over 25 years experience as a counselor / therapist, I’ve helped my clients work through the pain of loss, honor precious memories and legacies, and reconnect with life in a meaningful way.
