Have you suffered a recent loss and find yourself struggling to focus on every day tasks like going to work, spending time with family, and/or going to school?
Are you ending a relationship, against your will, and having to learn how to move forward alone?
Have you longed desperately to achieve a dream or goal, only to have to come to terms with the acceptance that it’s just not going to come true?
Grief is a normal response to loss and can encompass a myriad of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are unique to each person depending on their culture, background, beliefs, personality, and relationship to what was lost. Grief may come from the death of a loved one, miscarriage, pet loss, job loss, divorce, trauma, illness, or the loss of one’s identity. For many, the pain is unbearable and they turn to food, drugs, alcohol or any self-destructive behavior to cope.
In my work with clients, I provide a safe, supportive, compassionate, and empathetic therapeutic atmosphere where they can move through the grief process at their own pace. I use a solution-oriented approach to help clients reduce the pain associated with the loss, learn to cope more effectively, and nurture hopes for the future.
