I work with people who are grieving the loss of a loved one from death....but also those who have been diagnosed with a chronic or terminal illness, those suffering the loss of relationships, independence, career or loss of community from moving to a new place, infidelity and those dealing with the loss of a beloved pet. Life is full of transitions. Many people end up feeling isolated, like the world is going on around you and you're just standing still, questioning whether you're going crazy or having a mental health issue because you're experiencing feelings you've never felt before.
Sometimes people need someone to talk to who gets grief and who can validate what the process is like because it can feel so abnormal. When you're ready, there is the peace of finding your purpose; searching for who you once were, creating who you are now.
What would it be like to integrate this loss into your life, to learn to live peaceably side by side with it? I work with individuals, couples, and families around aspects of grief and transition. Call me to schedule a complimentary initial conversation to see if working together would be a good fit for you.
