Do you feel like your life has become defined by your struggles with your symptoms or yourself? Do you feel far away from the life that you want? My goal is to work with you to help you let go of, move through, and transform your struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma and grief, in order to move toward a more full, meaningful life. As part of our work together, we will create an idea of what a fulfilling life looks like for you, explore how to get there, and compassionately confront the barriers that might exist between you and that life.

You are a woman who has been devastated by pregnancy loss, pregnancy termination due to medical reasons, or infant death, and you are ready to talk to someone who truly understands how sad and alone you feel. You are grieving your sweet baby and just want someone who can listen without judging or telling you that “everything happens for a reason.” You feel heartbroken, ashamed, and angry. Your world has stopped while everyone else’s has moved along. If you see one more pregnancy announcement, gender reveal, or birth announcement on social media you might lose it.

Grief Therapists

How long does therapy take for grief?

There is no exact timeline for grief counseling. Some people may start to feel better after just a few sessions, while others may take months or longer to feel relief. Some specific approaches, including some types of CBT, may involve a set number of sessions, or therapy may be open-ended until the patient determines they are ready to wrap up. Just as there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there is no right or wrong way to seek therapy for grief.

When should you seek therapy for grief?

Many people mistakenly believe that their grief needs to be debilitating or all-encompassing to warrant therapy. This is not the case. While people who experience severe, prolonged grief—particularly those who are considering self-harm or engaging in unhealthy substance use—are especially likely to benefit from therapy, so too are people whose grief is less intense but still interfering with well-being or daily functioning. In practice, almost anyone struggling to process a loss could benefit from grief counseling.

Can grief be managed without therapy?

Oftentimes, yes. Grief is a near-universal part of being human, and many find that their grief, while profound, does not stop them from participating in day-to-day life and steadily eases over time without outside help. For others, however, the harsh pain of early grief persists for months or years or leaves them unable to function. This group is especially likely to benefit from seeing a therapist, who can guide them through their grief and help them reconnect with the world.

What happens if grief is left untreated?

Because grief does not in itself necessitate therapy, untreated grief will often resolve on its own. However, for some people—particularly those who would qualify for a diagnosis of prolonged grief disorder—untreated grief can be a source of seemingly endless pain or lead them to withdraw from the world. In such cases, treatment can be indispensable, as it can help an individual adapt to the loss and start living again.
