Grief



Is what each person will go through, at some point in his/her life, when touched by a death or non-death loss.


While many theories have developed over time regarding the stages of grief, it has become apparent that each person grieves in his or her own way and own timeframe. That sounds simple enough, but it doesn't feel simple. It can be overwhelmingly painful and bring up other deep emotions and past experiences.


It is understandable to feel overwhelmed, frightened, helpless, anxious or depressed when faced with a deep loss. When this mourning period seemingly goes on for longer than thought to be "normal"; when "moving on" or "getting over it" seems impossible, it is important to seek out a therapist experienced in dealing with grief and all that it encompasses.


Grieving is scary but to not grieve is to invalidate a relationship. I want to help you "grieve well", to let you know that you are not alone, to accompany you on this journey.
